Working Whippet


To help alleviate the labour shortage in Alberta, Bailey contemplates taking on a construction job. He's having doubts due to the inherent slowness of this piece of equipment, which doesn't quite resonate with his basic nature.

Remembering Breezer and Masque

Masque being her usual mellow self.
