Portable Magic

Bingo #3 & #4!

The Graveyard Book completes my #3 & #4 bingos! I didn't expect it but I might actually get a blackout. I guess that's about the only good thing to come of my baseball season ending early with the Rangers playoff implosion. Plus, the Indians shut out the Jays last night. Lots to celebrate this morning!
