Days without a Walk, I feel lethargic all day long, how about you? No motivation, difficult to get the blood pumping. Good things we got that new rumor generator to play with. Have you sent in your random tidbit of information yet? It doesn't work without you, so send in your random ramblings.
Also, we will be continuing our 12 days of Wild Christmas song in just a bit. Get your singing voices ready. Oh, and head over to Facebook for the Question of the Day. Spirited conversation the past few days. Good stuff.
Enjoy your day, all.
