Slow Sated Sunday

Good morning all...

Happy Memorial Day Weekend.

Welcome to another Slow Sated Sunday.

Since everyone is busy with family and friends, I figured to make today a catch up prompt day. So go back thru the old prompts and have a field day.

Fills should consist of 250 words or 2 icons/1 banner. Fluffy smut to outright porn is welcome.

Have fun and enjoy the weekend.
