About the Author: Through his love of nature, Chuck observed and saw the beauty of nature and the animals all around us as he drove his bus each day early in the mornings or at sunset. These are the times he thought, the woods and the earth comes alive. This suggested to him that God, was really an early riser. Bill, a cockatiel, was the first bird that Chuck ever had and came to him in an unusual way which started him on his many adventures. He observed that birds create close family ties and that they can show many emotions on their faces, (anger or happiness), even though they have no lips, only hard beaks. Most of us never see birds up close because they are usually in flight or far away. Gonzo is on the cover and is his second bird. He was an abused bird that became a great friend after some exciting go arounds, and a lot of help from his wife and daughter. You will read more about him later. Chuck found the key of what it takes to love a pet or they to love us. You will be touched by the emotional experiences of these stories as well as, some of his inspiring thoughts of what part fate plays in our lives. So come along and enjoy the read.
