This is strange. I go to this jeweler all the time for repairs, jewelry cleaning, etc. You have to be buzzed in twice to gain admittance. And he’s the nicest guy! this is upsetting.

Bulimic Panda was unpopular when she called for jewelry to be outlawed. Who’s laughing now? It’s not funny. Ban jewelry so no one can steal it. I love all of you so much. Happy Jesus not dead anymore day. I pray for my little Sunnyside. Amen.
