INforMEL and the Best for Last

This new MV from INforMEL was slated for the Weekender until I actually took a minute to watch it just now. I’ve had my head down a lot lately, with a lot of Day Job plus a training boot camp for another potential change in field PLUS a new course that I’m taking to do the job I already have somewhat better, oh and the pandemic rages on despite everybody in this country doing their level best to pretend that isn’t the case* and likely to start dying by the truckload in the next few weeks so it’s somehow now even more dangerous to go outside to, like, run or hike or something.
