Last week’s Member Appreciation Day at the Zoo was Super! We had a beautiful day for feeding giraffes
and petting lizard-things and Not petting the Owl
and playing on the playground,
We walked the hilly loop and when we got to the top, an empty Tram was ready to leave. We hopped on and took the entire Tour around and back to the Top.
Colonoscopy Week wrapped up with Casey’s procedure on cooold snowish Tuesday morning. Everybody survived and between the two of us, twelve polyps were removed!! Crazy, huh?
Wednesday morning the Turkey Hens visited to peck for bugs. We counted 22! They seriously need a safe and reliable source of birth control…
I have been working a lot on Casey’s Family Tree. It seems that four generations of his Mom’s family lived all within what we call Boxtown here in Evansville, most of the homes since torn down. Listening to him share his memories about these folks is as interesting as his ancestors are. His tree has fascinated me and I’m working on getting it blogged, but I keep coming across new stuff — plus he keeps adding new memories of people I have to run down. It is a Good Story and its perspectives have moved me quite deeply. It will be a series, so stay tuned.
Did I mention that we spotted the Rare Red-haired Pandagirl at the Zoo?
