Righty has become quite the creative entrepreneur since we arrived in the US. He's been drawing birds, something he's always enjoyed, but taken it up a notch by framing the drawings nicely and then selling them at our favourite local coffee shop, the Cherryghost.
He's also been mass-producing model airplanes and ships using cardboard, toothpicks, ice lolly sticks, and string.
