I picked this up from the library today and got right to listening. I put the first disc in the player and it wouldn't play, so I put the second disc in.

#MM Music Challenge — Climbed a Tower, Lost a Shoe

What's hard to ignore with the Coconut song is that it's a round that loops to infinity if one were to have enough time to sing infinitely.

What do you see? # 5 — Evening Snack

Island perspective, by Chloe Smith Mindy had been lost in the enchanted forest for hours. Footpaths seemed to go in circles. On the edge of her hearing was what almost sounded like laughter. As the sun reached its zenith then began its western descent, a gnawing hunger tore at Mindy's gut. She needed to rest… Continue reading What do you see? # 5 — Evening Snack
