Hottest episode this week with to my husband, this is MY fantasy man!!!

tinysusieNov 28, 2009

think the script writers should have made Laura find another younger man or for her to become unobtainable through becoming a nun or a doctor missionary, or a fatal car crash,then his wife tortures him over his love for dead Laura, or gone Lsorrows Laura saying mockingly and playing the record tell laura i love her only he is the survivor in this and this is harsh real life where upsets and battles and sorrows and unfairness really happen

This power-loaded man was then necessary to cast such roles like STIGMATA, as clever and probably could outshine any in appearance being handsome.

Courtney ElizabethOct 8, 2009

Gorgeous specimen for a human being! What a site for sore eyes!!!!! Where are you, not in Jacksonville, Florida obviously or you`d be mine! I`m 45, look 25, and you get better looking every day. Find me in Jacksonville, I won`t disappoint you, promise! I`ll come to New York :)

In Treatment is fabulous-Gabriel uses the English language to get his point across, no fancy terms that non-medical professionals don`t understand.

JoaanneJun 25, 2009

This guy is Ireland`s leading man.

I live in a small county Bathurst New Brunswick, Canada. 506-350-0194, if he would like to meet me and chat, get to know each other? sheila with a smile
