    I am absolutely addicted to redheads, and Erin is no exception. She is so beautiful! I’ve gone out with several reds and would like for Erin to be the last! :-). Hahaha. One problem though. She looks like a good dancer, and I can’t dance. So she will have to turn a blind eye to that one! Lol see you on the next one ch.9
