I love this meme — it’s been around for a while, but was only recently shared with me by my music-professor sister:

Top of the day to y’all. My sprout and I have finished our ritual (and delicious) Chinese lunch, and will be heading down (w. the spouse) to more family south of the Athens of America. Roast beast and red wine, and a day w. four generations. I wish your preferred company (self and others) to all my fellow jackals.
Over to y’all.
