A "WHALE" of a party!!

What a great way to spend my day! Went out to support my good friend Laurel's special event today to seek the funding for mounting the Sperm Whale skeleton they have been so diligently cleaning and preserving. For those who don't know where El Refugio de Potosi is and the fantastic work they do there, you should.

With two primary functions, rehabilitation and release of abandoned and injured wildlife and the education of local children about wildlife, ecology and conservation, they are truly doing serious work. I wish we would all support them 100%.

Looking for padrinos de huesos "Bone godfathers". My family sponsored the middle finger of the right flipper (no I will never grow up)

Big bugs and...

So if you weren't there today and you were in town, I can't possibly imagine what you did that was better then this. There's still some bones looking for godfathers so get on out there and do your part!

It says allot about how much I like what I do when I do the same thing on my days off as well!;-)
