I'm currently teaching this: While enjoying breakfasts before class here: ...and wondering who owns the My Little Pony mug at the spoon stand. This unfortunately leaves me with little time to do much else - particularly considering that I have an illness that has dragged onto over a week. Thankfully people have been patient about it, but I have used what little energy I have left to get the following shows done - and hoping to get more on the way!
