Iggy’s with me

Outside the Kenshaw Bay Police Station, Julie was thankful for the fresh air. Have you ever involuntarily loitered in a place with stifling air and the smell of gym socks? Then you’d know how good it felt for Julie to breath the air of the cool afternoon. Like lifting your head above water after a…

Okay, so this was definitely the end of the road for Julie’s trucker fantasy.
