It was a couple of days after Thanksgiving, and I was feeling blue again. So sad and blue did I become that I went in search of wisdom and advice from a cement animal structure.

“Am I crazy?” I asked, “Or did that cement animal sculpture just talk to me?”


Franklin: “Well, which question do you want me to answer first?”
