We wore massive dome heads with enormous beaks and fat stuffed bodies ( our own scrawny skinny legs covered in dyed yellow tights) below, the footwear was.... HUGE d...

a sick looking Gary.jpeg This beautiful tree has lived here for over 20 years. It has always had a beautiful display, although some years more than others.

As to your question on using grandfather to granddaughter. As stated by a previous poster it is usually only done to maximise the gene probability. Those who support it call it line breeding.
