MY DAILY CALENDAR…DAY 256 – SEPTEMBER 14, 2013 – Part One
MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR SATURDAY, DAY 256 OF 2013: As usual, there were no origami challenges over the weekend, which was just as well, because I spend most of the day going through about 150 photos I took on Friday afternoon and evening. It was the annual ZOO PARENTS’ PICNIC at the Zoo. This is a special after-hours get-together for everyone who has adopted one of the many animals at the St. Louis Zoo. I am the adoptive parent of a meerkat … I don’t know what his other parents call him, but I call him Merlin. He’s always the most photo friendly of all the animals at the zoo. He strikes a pose as soon as he sees a camara pointed at him.
Most of my family are also adoptive parents of some animal or other, and every year we get together at the annual picnic. Arrival time is usually around four in the afternoon, and each year we try to do an in depth visit to one or two of the many animal areas. This year, because we have two kiddies in the family between one and a year and a half, we started with the CHILDREN’S ZOO and the RIVER’S EDGE.
Little Luke, my great nephew meets his first goat.
And then a giant frog …
After that we move on to our next stop … THE RIVERS EDGE!
