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.

The site is just a web page, a meeting place, a clubhouse - it's the group that's special.

On the shore. The cabana boy is taking his afternoon siesta. Then he has to take a shower and figure out which speedo to wear. We may not see him for awhile.
