Not going to Westerns

I’m not going to Westerns this year. BUMMER. They’re always hard for me to get to, situated between two of the busiest weeks of my year at work. If I did go, I’d have to fly in Friday night and fly out Sunday night or first thing Monday morning. And when I say “first thing” I mean […]

Manatee Monday: FACTS

(West Indian) manatee facts! Manatees are like hippies at a potluck – they’re usually vegetarian, but if they can grab  a small fish, they’ll go for it.
