Mothnado

The animal kingdom and I have a great relationship.

My problem keeping it up

I know, I know, this is probably a bit to personal for a public blog, especially considering the promise I made yesterday.

The fog! The Fog!

<Those of you familiar with Fantasy Island should imagine Tattoo calling out the above to Mr. Roarke> My love of life here in South Florida is without compare.
