Friday afternoon, mostly sunny and lovely, 76 degrees.
Cannot wait to watch the Good Omens adaptation with David Tennant and Michael Sheen, except that means we need to hook up the Blu-Ray to get access to Amazon Prime, which means . . . probably not going to watch it anytime soon . . .
A bit of a hodgepodge collection. Enjoy.
