Napowrimo #6: Storks

A bit on the paper-thin side even by this year’s standards; but during napowrimo you take what you can get.


In which a popular myth is dispelled, and some helpful advice is offered for homeowners living in those regions where this decorative species is most commonly found.

they actually bring rabies.

unless you notice that the storks
are frothing at the beak.
