He told me that we will gladly pay a taxidermist and wait patiently for the finished project for now on.

Second Story:

A young boy found a buck dead. The boy wanted to keep it in his house, but of coarse it was still quite smelly. Parents didn’t want to pay to have it preserved so ask for advice. I gave them [ ]
