“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

  7. Taho and Winston are adorable. Love the shells. We don't get to the beach hardly ever so I collect fossils, and old what nots. My favorite place to find shells locally is the limestone cliffs down by the river. Have a great weekend!
