AO: The Battery



Good morning campers. Rise and shine for the groundhog day edition of F3. I’m 9-Volt and I will be your zoologist for today’s festivities. I am not a professional and do not know your medical conditions or limitations. You are here on your own volition. Push yourself but modify as necessary so as not to injure yourself.

The Q prepared a special ground hog’s day playlist starting with Sonny and Cher’s “I got you babe” followed by Polka music by Weird Al Yankovic (Check him out on Spotify)
