Hi I’m Toni, About me hmm, Lets See…I Love Animals, probably more than people…They simply fascinate me, with their individual, inborn, characteristics.I’m an amateur photographer, who finds the worst things funny, often amused by unusual, eccentric things and very easily distracted by everything.
f I don’t to reply to your comment, It will simply be because I didn’t see it. Toni x R.I.P PRINCESS KENDRA
