For now, he gets his little square box in the church area yard. I’m not a nature woman however did locate a publication title that caught my eye in the library. It was “Goodbye, My Subaru”, composed by Doug Fine. It captured my interest because that’s the brand of vehicle I drive. The cover photo was adorable, with a garden expanding under the hood of the cars and truck.
