The Holidays, when people have family to visit, except when they don't have family around. That has been my story for the last 5 years. My mother past away 6 years ago, dad 9 years ago and my only sister has been in and out of drug rehab for the last 12 years so she is not what I call a close family member anymore. I guess that is why I divert my energies to wildlife and sea life rescue and rehabilitation.
Speaking of sea life rehab, the sea life rescue in Alaska just released 2 seal pups, named Cupcake and Starburst,......was someone eating at the time they got named,... back into the wild just over a month ago. Last word on their release is that they were doing just fine.
