So, I'll start by saying that I'm a proud mom, and both of my babies are smart, good-looking, and charming as all get out when they're working you. (Friends, we are also promoting the qualities of kindness and generosity, but, one day at a time.) Since we're talking about Manimal today, I'll tell you- he is one good-looking fella.

Fully expect to see this on the news after your next COVID-19 update:
Xtreme Tabling. Try it, you'll LOVE it.
