Good morning, O ’Noisers, and welcome to another glorious Friday. In fact, not just another Friday but a very special Friday, in which I hope to find myself bringing home some precious cargo indeed. So if y’all feel so inclined, I wouldn’t say no to a little shared hope and good will to keep my plans from going off the rails again.

Otherwise, the weekend is nearly upon us. So roll on through and let us know what’s going on for ya. Drop some .gifs if you got ’em, the standard Friday fare. And don’t forget to look both ways before you cross back into the real world.
