Wilkommen! Bienvenue! Welcome! (Back)! We've missed you. Quick updates on what happened to us while you were gone:

Ruth grew a foot, she has 3 now.
Jackie learned to lasso a horse. She's yet to ride one, but has many roped.
Amanda joined a Toyota Corolla gang and got a tattoo that says "Corollers".
Brad learned the Canadian National Anthem on the oboe. Backwards. Underwater.
Musu developed a superpower, but she won't tell us which one.
Zach negotiated a peace treaty between two warring factions of marmots.
And I transformed into that bear, that's me now.

Hope your break was rewarding.
