Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday. Just send me a PM and tell me what you've tried so far.

On shore!

Given the progression of the past few weeks, I thought there would be a FOur in the title. But Matt gave us something else to puRSue. And now the paddlers and the boaTERS head to shore in our eTERNal quest to win the mug! This was a fun one. But now I must return to scrubbing my kitchen floor--really.

In honor of World Elephant Day, I will have some Amarula later.
