Eggs all over is a sure sign of carol gulley aka koi lo getting in yur pond
and having an ***. She throws eggs all over the polace. Not her
own eggs as she was neutered years back , thanks be to allah she is is

motor cycle gang, but anyhow she squeezes the eggs out of dead carp in
her ponds and fantasizes about spawning with nature and cloneing the
world......Thats why she is so obsessed with sock puppets.
