    Good morning! Here's what I'm working with over here... A grumpy golden retriever! Wednesday morning is my "sleep in morning" in that it's the only day of the week that I start at 6:30 a.m. instead of 5:30 a.m. but apparently Sullie didn't think 6 a.m. was any kinder of an hour than 5 a.m. [...]
