Apple sauce |

Who plucks apples, finds apples… or something like that

I’m pretty sure that saying in the title is completely wrong… Sounds kind of weird right? And yes, I am quite dramatic when it comes to remembering sayings really. I confuse the all and end up with completely new and unique ones… Lol.. Well...
