Happy April! Spring has sprung early and with vigor in these parts, so I hope the good weather lends itself to a nice evening stroll or a fantastic midnight chase.

4.) An old favorite, to round out the group. If you have not seen this yet, run, don’t walk:
5.) And I leave you with this, which I sadly do not have much of a source for:
