Little Bear's Adventure's
St. Francis was a good to animals, so I've heard. Many take their pets to church to be blessed on this day. But Beth has this statue in her yard, so this sort of worked.
As you can see there are a few more animals, waiting to be held. And in truth, Beth never intended to pose me with St. Francis. Earlier, she had rescued a butterfly from the pool. The poor thing was struggling to dry its wings and she thought about putting him on the statue. But he flew away. Then she rescued a wasp, thrashing in the pool. She saved him... even though she's been killing wasps all summer. She didn't attempt to put him on the statue. So I got a turn!
