Watch as your simple monologue turns into the rooty tooty speech of the West!

Sally’s Saloon

This assignment I decided Sally should talk about her saloon a little bit since not many know of this fine establishment! Sally has a great place just her rough housing brothers may put a damper on things! This assignment wasn’t hard, the hardest part was coming up with what to …
