Happy Patriots’ Day

“Or Patriot’s Day in Maine,” Admin says. “A fine distinction.”

“Lexington Green,” Spence says. “The Old North Bridge. Do kids still take all that in history?”

“No idea. We’ll find out when little V. starts going to school. Should I run the Marathon this year?”


“Twisted my arm.”

Welcome George and Astro from a land downunder. That beach looks great!

    Don’t think I’ve ever heard of Patriot’s Day. Good morning all.

    Melanie: Thank you for the info on the fake blood. Interesting.

    Good Morning B!

    Patriot’s Day is a NE kind of thing. I believe they celebrate it in Boston, and that is also they day of their Marathon.

    Welcome to George and Astro (Jetson’s fans perhaps?) from the land down under.

    Yup on both accounts there Rose!

    I was fortunately enough to be invited to a party on the roof of one of the buildings at the finish of race. Could see everything! Very nice time.

    Today, back to the doc to have BP taken and deliver some tests. Then on to LUNCH with a certain Royals’ Mum.

    YSAS is taking the day off. I have been told that if I call him before he calls me, he will reach through the phone and pour stage blood on me.

    Good morning all. Missed youse guys yesterday. Didn’t get back till late, so have to go back and read the blog to see what we missed.

    Melanie, have a good, relaxing lunch. It would be fun to join you!

    Blustery, rainy day here. Good day to lay low and recover from the trip yesterday.

    Poor Rio has cold and blustery weather while we may hit 80 degrees. We also have a high wind warning. The wind may keep people inside and not able o enjoy the warmth. Then for tomorrow, MagPie is sending us her cold rainy day.

  7. B.Stover
    9:52 am on April 16th, 2012

    I’m having lunch with a friend. We’ll have to dodge rain drops while being swept away by the wind.

    9:56 am on April 16th, 2012

    Just wanted to thank youse guys for your get well wishes.

    Last night, the Prof opened the door and Luna, Belle Starr, and my dear Masquers were there. After the Prof tucked me in, Belle Starr sat on my head, Masquers lay beside me, and his gentle purring, and soft paw message left me quite peaceful and calm. Luna (what a mom!) keep her eye on me the whole night, and eventually talked Belle Starr off of my head. I guess I was in a very deep sleep, because when I woke up, there was a quilled red rose by my side, and maybe I dreamed it, but I felt a pug kiss, sometime during the night. The Prof said a brown pug in a black bow tie came to the door late, and the Prof led him to the bedroom. I thought I felt a pug-sized body snuggle against me….

    It’s going to be 90-freakin’ degrees here today!

    I hope that all the loves will have you feeling tip top lollipop very, very soon.

  11. Rose
    10:12 am on April 16th, 2012

    Thank you, Wolfie. I’m sure I be feeling tip-top in no time.

  12. Princess Sam
    10:16 am on April 16th, 2012

    Rose, after MagPie sends me the cold weather, I’ll try to pass it on to you – as quickly as I can!

    Liz! I’m beginning to get a true sense of the Time difference between us. It’s 11:23 pm in Japan. We are getting up and youse are going to bed. Is it the same time in Australia?

  15. BearSpiritDog
    10:24 am on April 16th, 2012

    I’m south of Sammie, in ski-less country, and it’s a beautiful 74 degrees already with NO WIND – yet.

    geez louise – our eyes are finally uncrossed after that unfortunate episode with the Redbone punch and boot rear combo.

    It was awful – even the dang mice were laughing at us. And when Gilly started barking at the fuzzbutts, we thought we were gonna die! Sage splorted up every single thing he has eaten in the past 6 months, and I couldn’t even think about catnip without getting queasy.

    Now Mama is talking about getting Chinese food with Melanie, and we are just rolling our eyes and holding our tummies. Man, were we ever this sick?

    So – when’s the next party?

  18. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:07 am on April 16th, 2012

    News!….My friend just sent me a text on my little Go-Phone…snort!… Seems she is all a twitter because someone is taking her to the Rockies Game tonight – They will be in the Busy-Place Suite so the weather will not matter….chuffle!… Free everything from food to booze…heh!…Can’t beat that with a stick…snort!

  19. BearSpiritDog
    11:21 am on April 16th, 2012

    Rio! Excellent News!…for your Friend. Will she be able to sneak you in?
    Hi, Rose: WeatherKat reports an extreme change in temperature from here to there and no need of that big fur coat. Apparently, Belle Starr gave our guy a couple of strange looks at first, but now he is accepted as just another one of the pack. Having a wonderful time visiting you. Says even though you are not feeling tip-top you are the perfect hostess. Oh, and the Prof is very nice too.

  20. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:23 am on April 16th, 2012

    Decorations!…She said her place at the the busy-place was all decorated with Birthday stuff when she got there this morning…snort!…She couldn’t get to her chair because of all the paper strung over her desk…chorkel!

  21. Natasha the Nefarious Borzoi
    11:29 am on April 16th, 2012

    Commander Rio – is all very nice for your friend. Ve are happy that she has good birthday. She deserves happy day. After all, she puts up vith your snort, heh, and gruffle to not mention stealing her lasagna and Zingers.
    Ve hope she has very vonderful time at game of Rocks throwing balls of bases

    How can they have a holiday in just one corner of the country? I have never heard of Patriots Day before today.

    Rose, a high of 90 degrees is freakin. The weather here is just normal NM Spring weather.

    Yippie!! Rio’s friend is going to see the Rockies play! They win when she is at the ballpark so I am counting on this win tonight.

  24. Riö – The Evil Pug
    11:53 am on April 16th, 2012

    SiberH!…Its true!…snort!…They always win when she is at the game…heh!heh!…One thing she is worried about though. Rain Delay…grunt!

  25. Barb & Maggie
    11:59 am on April 16th, 2012

    Rio, tell your friend to have fun tonight. Also glad you are enjoying the Andy C. books. We have to order #7, New Tricks, from the library. Still reading Heart of a Killer. It is good, but I think we like the Carpenter series better.

    Would love to send this weather on to Sammy, but it seems like it wants to stick around. Lots of sticks and branches out there but who cares, we are not going to pick them up today!

  26. OleyHowlers
    12:07 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Howdy Plunderers!
    It is 82 degrees here already, according to our weather station. We have no idea what that means, but we can tell you that we are roasting hot.

    B&M, be careful in that wind. We hate wind!

    Rio, your friend is going to the Rockies game and she gets to sit in the Special Box…how cool is that?

    Rose, we hope all of your caregivers (a.k.a. Smoochers) are helping you to get back to tip-top.

  27. Terri's Pal

    Hi gang!
    I’ve been offline because I’ve been busy having fun with a puppy all weekend. He’s back home but I must say he is a wonderful 4 month old who will be a super addition to the family that discovers him. He’s for sale by somebody who lives in my area. After having high-energy Lab (Chimo) and Terv (Terri), I was amazed at how relatively “lazy” and quiet a different breed can be.

    As usual, Terri was snarky and told him in no uncertain terms not to bother her.

  28. Siber-H
    12:15 pm on April 16th, 2012

    I just checked the weather for Denver tonight. No rain is forecast but it will be cool. Rio, I don’t want your friend to have to set there through a rain delay. As we both know, it is bad enough at home waiting them out.

  29. BearSpiritDog
    12:16 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Barb&Magpie: How was the Big Birthday Bash for Lily yesterday? We know she loved all her presents.
    Nana is backed up on books. She has a large stack to get through before getting to Andy Carpenter. Spending lots of time catching up on videos.
    Sorry about your “fowl” weather. heh, heh.

    O.Howlers: Stay cool! (If you can)

    Terri: That pup is very cute. We just want to hug him!

  30. Siber-H
    12:19 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Mopm says, “What a cute puppy!”

  31. Riö – The Evil Pug
    1:17 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Little “V”!…heh!snort!heh!…Grandchild.

  32. Rose
    1:31 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Sammie: Whatever you can do to get that nice cool weather here, is greatly appreciated.

    Rio: Your friend is one lucky gal! What a nice present, and to sit in the hoi-poloi section too! That’s the life. Hope she has a great time!

    I am having a wonderful time with my guest as well. I love having them all here. I believe the Prof has taken the gang to the beach today, where the Prof can rest under a shady tree with Masquers, and Belle Starr and Luna can play in the surf.

    Rio: You did leave that quilled rose last night, didn’t you?

  33. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    1:38 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Don’t let Dad see the puppy! He would want to bring him home!

    He is awfully cute though.

  34. Mollypop's Mom
    1:44 pm on April 16th, 2012

    I went to the pool already today. I thought I had better get moving while it was still summer outside and before winter comes back tomorrow. I managed to get over an hour of sun and swimming, then the wind arrived. The swimming pool had white caps!

  35. Snowhook Bella
    1:51 pm on April 16th, 2012

    I wondered why Luna insisted on packing water wings for Belle Starr. Now I know.

  36. Melanie
    2:22 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Weather … Weird … Sounds like we have quite a weather whatever coming our way. Right now we are in Red Flag Warning until 8 pm tonight. Our woods haven’t had a fire in YEARS. Sort of scary.

    Zoe and I BOTH left today!!! She went one way down the hills and I went the other. She got to do fun things she wanted to do and I did too! Hallelujah !! What fun!
    The Royals’ Mum and I solved the world’s problems. Zoe went to a used furniture store, bargained and bought two sofas!

    Now, Rose. Sounds like your Smoochers have everything under control.

    Riö, The PARTY CONTINUES! Woo Hoo!

    Siber-H, we used to have Evacuation Day and Massacre Day also, but they took those away as holidays.

    Terri, of course, you didn’t have any time. Not with a puppy around.

    Everyone else? HIIII!!! I had tea with caffeine in it!!!!

    From the play!

  37. Macy the Min-pin
    2:27 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Mom just finished “New Tricks” and “Dog Tags”. She has not gotten to read the first 2 books, as the library does not have them. We are loving the canine caracters.

    This is for Basil and Sage:

  38. Macy the Min-pin
    2:30 pm on April 16th, 2012

    I am betting that you guys’ states don’t have Juneteenth. We don’t celebrate it but our folks of African descent do.

  39. B.Stover
    2:50 pm on April 16th, 2012

    We went to the Tea Room and had a lovely high tea: sandwiches (without the crust), quiche tarts, muffins with Devon cream and lemon curd and, of course, tea…Darjeeling. I’m full.

    It’s 71 and really windy but the sun is out.

    I’d love to see Mollypop’s “white caps”!

  40. Melanie
    2:59 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Oooo, I haven’t been to a high tea since we moved from the Boston area.

    Macy, Juneteenth? I’ll have to look it up.

    I did look up the weather. We are just going to get the high winds. No rain. We need rain. Even the vernal pools have dried up .

  41. Mollypop's Mom
    3:08 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Buffalo, New York celebrates Juneteenth.

  42. BearSpiritDog
    3:16 pm on April 16th, 2012

    MollyPop’s Mom: That is funny about the white caps!

    Rose: I know M is enjoying the time at the beach…under a shady tree solving the problems of the World with the Prof. On second thought they may be taking kat naps.

    B: What a fabulous sounding lunch…high tea for the East Coast folks. When Nana visited Victoria on Vancouver Island many years ago she had high tea at the old hotel there.
    But, that is a reminder…as if I needed it…it is my lunchtime.

  43. Siber-H
    3:47 pm on April 16th, 2012

    One does not have high tea in NM.
    Bear, Mom has been to that old hotel in Vancouver…many years ago.

  44. B.Stover
    3:54 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Melanie: I think you deserve to have high tea. There must be some place nearby.

    And SH: I bet I could find a restaurant serving high tea in NM.

  45. Melanie
    3:54 pm on April 16th, 2012

    But Siber-H, You have so many delicious things besides a high tea.

  46. Riö – The Evil Pug
    3:57 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Clarkson!…He has hair!…snort!…And lots of it – wow! I’m used to seeing him with his head shaved…grunt!

  47. BearSpiritDog
    4:13 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Melanie: We have said this before. When YSAS changes characters from play to play, he takes on not only new identities, but also is completely different in appearance. It is quite amazing. Even some of the top actors seem to be playing “themselves” in most of their movies.

  48. Mollypop's Mom
    4:19 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Will Clower is on Dr. Oz right now.

  49. Riö – The Evil Pug
    4:45 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Clower!…Funny you should mention that Clower guy…snort!…I got an email from his blog. Its the first one ever. He must not post daily like our author does…sniff!…But then he doesn’t have Admin and Spencer helping him out either…heh!

  50. Mollypop's Mom
    4:57 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Many years ago I took golf vacations in Bermuda. Even the golf game stopped for high tea. We parked the golf cart and went into the hotel. It was lovely, just as B. described.

  51. Rose
    5:06 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Just got a call from the Prof. They are on their way back from the beach (after and ice-cream stop at our favorite place, Longford’s in Rye, NY) to pick me up. A good time was had by all.
    Belle had a taste of every kind of ice-cream, and then decided on bubble gum, because it was pinker than strawberry. Luna frim paw wasn’t enough….The Prof gave into the charms of Belle Starr.

  52. Riö – The Evil Pug
    5:25 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Leaving!…My friend is leaving to come home but she says it will just be for a quick few minutes to get ready for the game…sniffle!…Then she will leave me and Beau with her mother all evening. Her mother will not let me be in the basement by myself…grump!….So have a great evening without me everyone…sniff!

  53. Barb & Maggie
    5:28 pm on April 16th, 2012

    MPM, The framed picture we have from you was done in Bermuda, so we thought you had been there. About 20 yrs. ago Barb won a production trip from her ins. company. She could take another adult as long as it was not a boyfriend (her company board members were prudes), so she took Kelly. The trip was to Bermuda for a week and the accomodations were first class. That was one of her favorite places ever.

    Macy, we just ordered New Tricks from the library. Our library does not have the Carpenter books but we order them on inter-library loan. They put the request out there, and the book can come from any library in the state. Do you have something like that available in Texas?

    Wind is so bad it blew the sliding barn door off the hinges, so we had to have the young muscle man from next door come over to put it back on the track. No other wind damage so far, just lots of freakin branches! We will get him some beer for his efforts.

  54. Snowhook Bella
    5:37 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Rio: tell your friend that I hope she has a great time! I wish you were able to go with her.

    Rose: Give the Prof time. He can build up a resistance to said charms. It isn’t easy, mind.

  55. B.Stover
    5:48 pm on April 16th, 2012

    I like the idea of a golf game being stopped for high tea.

  56. Basil and Sage
    6:06 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Macy – we love your poster kitty! don’t make us push this button. hahahahahahahahaaaa

    Bee – the only way you would find a place in New Mexico that served high tea is if you went to a Sonic in the mountains and got it iced. Right Siber?

    We think they should stop baseball games for high tea. Can you imagine?

    Rose – you have NO idea how jealous Mama is about the Prof and Company being at the beach. Its warm enough here, but alas, no beaches. Or even pools with whitecaps!

  57. B.Stover
    6:18 pm on April 16th, 2012

    I assume NM has hotels and any hotel would serve high tea.

  58. Siber-H
    6:19 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Do they stop a game of cricket for high tea?

    Herbs, That is funny!! It would be one way to have high tea in NM.

    Rio and I would scream bloody murder if they stopped a baseball game for high tea.

  59. Melanie
    6:23 pm on April 16th, 2012

    I think it would improve the game of golf.

    I hope Riö’s friend has the time of her life!!!

    Going to try a Dick Francis movie on Netflix streaming.

  60. Siber-H
    6:27 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Stover, NM does have hotels but they don’t have high tea. Happy Hour would be more like it…even the posh hotels.

  61. B.Stover
    6:38 pm on April 16th, 2012

    That’s a good question. I think they do stop cricket for high tea….cricket takes so long anyway.

    I think that any sports would be improved by stopping for high tea.

  62. B.Stover
    6:43 pm on April 16th, 2012

    St. Francis hotel in Santa Fe, NM serves high tea.


  63. Melanie
    6:56 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Okay, this is what I’m having from the St. Francis …

    The Artisan Cheese Plate (all gluteno-free of course) with a Sherry of B.Stover’s choosing.
    Then as a sweet … The Sweet Sampler of course!
    Pastelles de Tres Leches, Flan and Dark Chocolate Torte.
    Tea? Well, actually I think I’ll do the Spanish Coffee seeing that I would probably be headed towards a coma.


  64. Siber-H
    7:05 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Stover and Melanie, Come out here for a visit and I will take you to St. Francis for high tea St. Francis would be THE hotel in NM. We might even run into a few movie stars, but I would bet on them being at Happy Hour.

  65. B.Stover
    7:06 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Except for the coma, that sounds good Melanie.

  66. B.Stover
    7:08 pm on April 16th, 2012

    SH: Melanie and I will be on our way!

  67. Belle Starr
    7:09 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Two- legged: I didn’t listen to my four-legged because I was having so much fun tasting ice-cream. My tummy didn’t feel so good, and I didn’t t want to mess up the ‘fessor’ s nice car, but I sported on their nice leather couch. Two- legged was very embarrassed, and told me she didn’t raise me that way, but Rose and the Professor were real nice about it. I really like the little white and black dog we are blurring with. He’s nice!

  68. Rose
    7:13 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Melanie: There is nothing better than a godd flan. My mom made the best……!

  69. Melanie
    7:18 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Sounds good to me! Here’s their cheese plate.

  70. Rose
    7:24 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Rebecca and Bear: The gang will be blurring back tomorrow morning. I’m feeling much better after the love and care I was given. I getting some more lightning shot through my head Friday. I may need some huskies hugs, and calming purrs.

  71. Wolfie Wigglebutt
    7:25 pm on April 16th, 2012

    I’m not so sure about Melanie and Bee traveling together. It might work out okay as long as there is not a cane involved. Unlike last time, I might add.

  72. dawson
    7:32 pm on April 16th, 2012

    My contribution to “Patriot’s” day will be to do my taxes.

    We have Rio’s cold blustery weather here. I even saw a few flakes of snow. Carpola!

    I think any sport could be improved upon by stopping in the middle for high tea.

    I’ve had “one of those days” starting with a flat tire (on my bicycle).

    And then I got an envelope in the mail that made everything better. Thank you Snowhook for taking me to Nome and for the Iditarod 2012 patch. You’re the bestest!

  73. B.Stover
    7:34 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Wolfie: Melanie and I only use the cane when necessary.

    That cheese plate looks good. It looks like they have stilton.

  74. Snowhook Bella
    7:40 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Dawson: I tried to keep up with your travel schedule so it would arrive where you happened to be at that moment.

    Rose: I feel Luna’s embarrassment. Luckily, a leather couch is much easier to clean than a fabric couch following the almighty splort.

  75. Melanie
    7:41 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Dawson, you have to do your Canada income taxes on our Patriots’ Day. How confusing.

    (B.Stover, I will pack the cane.)

  76. Macy the Min-pin

    The only waves here are on our outdoors water bowl, but at least it was cooler today.

    Mom thinks she would be more at home at the mountain top Sonic than a fancy hotel.

    Dad is out campaigning for the local elections, something he could never do, due to working for the city. Our front yard looks like a sign farm now. No neighbors have to guess who Dad supports, all the way to the state senate.

    Annie and Belle went to the v-e-t today and each lost a pound. Dad said the scale must be broken. Biddie went last week and lost 3 pounds. I went back in February before the scale broke.

    Macy, I’m with your mom about preferring to have iced tea at altitude in the mountains rather than high tea at the St. Francis hotel. However, if those two ladies want high tea in Santa Fe, I would be happy to escort them and pay for it with mom’s credit card.

  80. B.Stover
    8:19 pm on April 16th, 2012

    Melanie and I would enjoy your company SH but it will be my treat.

  81. Princess Sam
    8:25 pm on April 16th, 2012

    My Mom and Dad and Molly’s Mom have had many good times in Bermuda, including the high teas. Bermuda is British so they drive on the left side of the road. Visitors cannot have cars so visitors ride on motor scooters. It was hard to stay on the left side and Molly’s Mom had an accident with lots of bruises.

    Poor MollyPop’s Mom. We went to England for two weeks and I did a lot of the driving. When I got back home I did a lot of “Which Lane I’m I Supposed To Be IN?” moments.

    Going up. TTFN

    Nope, I checked my email and someone had sent me the following ad.
    Somehow it reminds me of my home.

    Really TTFN

    The first time I drove in England was in London. Whew! Since one is on the “wrong” side of the car, it was easy to remember to stay on the wrong side of the road.

    Siber – Mama wants to know – if everywhere else they ask if you want green or black tea- in NM do they ask if you want green or red?

    Don’t mind her – she’s just mad cuz Melanie and Bee didn’t invite us all for high tea. tee hee.

    Macy – what a great video. Thank dog Mama has never tried that with us at the beach. We might have to get very fierce (poufy) about THAT idea!

    Gee, T&G I don’t know because I don’t drink tea but I sure know how to answer the red or green question.
    I’m sure your mom is invted to come along with Stover and Melanie.
    You know, Mom and I actually like Gallup better than Santa Fe…Gallup is more real and honest and love those red rocks outside of Gallup.

    SiberH, i think my Mom and Molly’s Mom would like to go too. No golf game is necessary.

    Cool!! All of you are invited!!! There is a beautiful golf course just north of where I live that is owned and run by one of the Pueblo tribes. They also have a fancy hotel there but best of all…they are Pet Friendly! I have gone to some of the parties they have for dogs.

    ugh This baseball game isn’t going so well, so far.

    Sam, When Barb and Kelly went to Bermuda they rented a scooter and went out to a very, very old cemetary. It was really cool. In the downtown area they had some of those circle intersections. What are they called? Roundouts or roundabouts? Any way they were really confusing. I think the place where they stayed was called the Princess Resort. Does that sound right?

    I knew Rio should have gone to that game!

    So, we’re all going to NM for high tea.

    Yum! We love high tea!

    Roundabouts. The first time I drove on one in England, I didn’t think I’d ever get off.

    Stover, Have you seen the movie, “National Lampoon’s European Vacation?” (you probably haven’t). They get on a roundabout and can’t get off. It is so funny.

  95. B.Stover
    9:36 pm on April 16th, 2012

    SH: I haven’t seen that movie. Do they finally get off?

  96. Siber-H
    9:45 pm on April 16th, 2012

    They finally get off. It is a pretty stupid movie, but funny.

    I think four-corner stops make more sense than round abouts.

    Good night all.

    We here love roundabouts.

    I am not sure about high tea. I am rather shortish.

    Our library does have interlibrary loan, but it is $2 a book and mom is c-h-e-a-p. There is another town about 2 miles from here, will check that one.

    Today is the last day of the Tax Season. I will be glad when it is over. Too many people are waiting till the last this year. (Including poor Admin.)

    Siber – we used to love Santa Fe – when Woolworths was still on the plaza, and everyone there wasn’t so bloody impressed with themselves.
    We like Gallup too. Especially Virgie’s Mexican restaurant.

    We hope Rio’s friend is having the time of her life!
    That’s it for us folks. G’night

    No Melanie: I am doing US taxes. The IRS wants to know how much money I have in Canada. Not much is the answer. Hands off!

    Stover: I see we both had the same idea about sports being improved by high tea. I was reading every other word, so I missed your post until I went back and re-read.

    Snowhook Bella: You sent the picture to the right place and your timing could not be any better. Thank you.

    Melanie: That ad was hilarious, as was your likening the ad to your house. I laughed out loud, but I can relate.

    Good Night Everyone, except Liz and the other Down Unders…G’day to you.

    Melanie: That was Easy. Drama at the push of a button.

    Nite All. Off to read. (Liz, I’ll never have to ask you what time it is ever again. The day maybe…but not the time) – Bear

    Macy, Our library doesn’t charge anything for ordering from other libraries.

    We will join you in a good night!

    Be back tomorrow, if the crick don’t rise (as they say out here in the boonies).

    Top of the ninth inning. The Rockies are behind by 5 runs. I am only reporting this because Rio’s friend is there. Usually when the Rockies are losing, Rio and I don’t say much.
    I might as well go to sleep.

    Night All

  109. Snowhook Bella
