Well I’ll be watching this

what an experience

My brother nursed a bird back to health…and boy were his nipples sore! Seriously though, he did find a baby bird that would never have survived the day – he not only took care of it and kept it safe, he documented every step along the way. I applaud his intervention and patience and thankful…read more »

I knew it was a place that did not require a tie or dress slacks. I’ve never been a dress slacks kinda guy.
