Cute little Scraggles has found his strength and flown away. ^-^ (I think he called for reinforcements, too! Seemed like there was a welcoming party when he took off.)

Slept in until 7:20 (glorious) and I'm feeling great today, even hopped on Belinda for a tour at 8:30! Look what the book exchange had today!
