Eddy the Falcon - 03/30/2020



Hi Folks, Fast Eddy the Falcon here. I stopped by to visit with Jeffery your seagull friend, but, he seemed quit upset that I was here, in fact they keep buzzing me. Must be that social distance requirement or something.
What an incredible sunrise this morning, God's handiwork never ceases to amaze me.
Well --- Stay safe, I'm going to go have some fun and scare some more of those pesky gulls.
