“Mother Nature is harsh, and if there’s value in dealing with a death, there’s also valuse in moving beyond it quickly” – John Marzluff

I took my family to a recent Alpaca show at the Hobart Show Grounds.  We actually went along to look at the vintage car expo, but found it would cost more than $40 for my family to enter.  Next door was the Alpaca show, free to enter, and as we were there we decided to Read more about “Mother Nature is harsh, and if there’s value in dealing with a death, there’s also valuse in moving beyond it quickly” – John Marzluff[…]
