Fun Friday

Just because we work from home doesn't mean we can't have a little fun together!  Every Friday, we have a fun activity we post on our Namely community feed to get everyone pulling together and put a smile on everyone's face.  When we work (and play) together, we can make great things happen!

called the animal control, she was unsure if...

they would believe what she was reporting...

how joyous, when animal control came they said they had a special potion that will turn him back into a man...

and poof he was back to himself, only a bit taller and more handsome. With his new self confidence he decided to...
