A couple of quick farewells and best wishes for a Saturday morning.

2) On a lighter note, Kelly Grayson, the Ambulance Driver, has publicly announced that he is saying farewell to a large slice of himself. Kelly is well on his way to meeting an ambitious weight loss goal between now and November.

And a quick hello …
