One can never consent to creep when one feels an impulse to soar.

EarlyAct at Heritage Manor


A resident at Heritage Manor that received a goody bag from the Mulberry EarlyAct Club!




A little girl asked her grandpa to make a frog noise. He asked, "Why?"

She replied, "Dad says were going to Disneyland when you croak!"
