Still Dreaming

"Hi, this is kind of a random question, but I heard you 'rent out' bald eagles for special events?"

"That's right. Yes."

"Do you, by chance, allow people to come in and pay a fee to...hold a bald eagle?"

"No, you need a permit to hold a bald eagle, but you can get a picture next to one."

"What does it take to get a permit?"

"Oh,'s not just something you do for a photo op. It takes lots of money and years of training."

"Alright. Thank you very much."

And thus went the conversation - my attempt at fulfilling one of the items on my ever-expanding "bucket list."

The bald eagle is our national bird after all...

I guess I'll simply put that one on the back burner until I have more time to pursue such a permit.

Next up...? Well...everything else!

Still pursuing dreams,

one day at a time,
