D is for Dosa #BlogchatterA2Z

I looked at it through the corner of my eye sitting prettily surrounded by its three friends and exuding one of the most succulent fragrances I know.

His eyes caught a glimpse of the place where the nameplate used to be and, unknowingly, he felt a stab in… Read More Everything isn’t lost #telltalethursday
