I M LUCY ROSE and here's the thing about friends: I am lucky in them. And here's the thing about that: sometimes they are in need indeed, especially when one of them buys a plumbing store and needs to diva it up so it can turn into a bakery. That is one job that takes work and costs plenty, and even an army of McBees couldn t do it alone. But I am one busy bee who loves my friends.
