Shrimp and asparagus salad sounds pretty dang tasty. And that lizard would make a fine gift for Sawyer, Noelle!

Sawyer says that Noelle should bring that lizard to his house and then Stinky and Periwinkle and play with it on their next adventure. He looks huge, but we suspect that is just the photo. Sawyer sends Noelle thanks for thinking of him as well as purrs and whisker kisses. Angel Mau sends his beloved Allie oodles of smooches and love.
