"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, well...it'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,
