“For my own part, I wish the bald eagle had not been chosen the representative of our country. He is a bird of bad moral character. He does not get his living honestly.”

– Benjamin Franklin

    • Too funny, Aunt Mary! 🙂 Cheers, Ashley

  2. Set the pace for all the scavengers in Washington today.

    • You have a point, David! 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
