Week 5

I suppose I should take my walks earlier if I don’t want most of them to look like they’re wearing a gray blanket of doom. Something to think about. I thought about it. I’ll walk when it’s convenient. The first picture may explain why I’m raising what I’m raising a baby bird (to be later released). We had unusual winds… Read More
