Note: Still working on a fix for the Friends gallery. No uploading possible at this time.

“That coat of hers!” says Spence.

“Athena and Brutus, huh?” Spence says. “Now they’re giving names to winter storms.”

“That’s the way the country’s going,” says Admin. “Ten years from now they’ll be naming every damn zephyr.”
