Christmas Eve!

Nice try, sunshine…

Left alone in the capable flippers of the short-notice babysitter (i.e. Grandma…) – while his parents brave the crowds of last-minute Christmas shoppers (please, humour me…) – this enterprising chick seizes his opportunity for a little seasonal wool-pulling, of the ‘over-the-eyes’ … Continue reading
