Critters on Zonkey Street: Boston

Whenever I get the chance, I try my hand at a little vGraffiti. The photo above was taken at a train station in Boston this summer. However, I don't post that much on this blog anymore.

I still like the blog format but posting to other social media is some much convenient. I don't need to open a browser and type, I just take the picture and share.  Sometimes I share on Twitter but more often than not I post to the Critters on Zonkey Street Facebook page. Check them out.

Also taken in Boston at MassArt.

How To Milk A Dinosaur is the original version of the book How To Milk A Dinocow, published by Peak City Publishing, LLC. That version of the book is out of print but the story is virtually the same in  How To Milk A Dinosaur
