I had imagined this day over and over again in my thoughts but I didn't know how it would go. How would I feel? Would I be able to participate? | GNOWFGLINS.com

This is my story… what’s yours?

Country Mouse v. City Mouse

Country Mouse v. City Mouse | Do you remember the fable, The City Mouse and The Country Mouse? The country mouse leaves the country to visit his cousin in the city and becomes enamored by the luxuries of city life but eventually he finds that they come at a dangerous price. The city cousin visits the country cousin's home as well, but he dislikes the simplicity and boredom. I confess that life in the country is infinitely more simple, but I do not find it boring -- not with the chores. ;) | GNOWFGLINS.com
