      Thank You! Tails and the fact that it's time consuming and I'm long overdue on taking new pictures. The tails have motivated me to do so this weekend

      Got some mail from Zimmy yesterday, can't decide which color sticker to run. Leaning towards the red.

      I'm very anti-sticker but I'm making an exception.

      Monster Mats are getting holes, need to find a better alternative. For the price you think they'd last longer than one year
