Zippity-Zoo Day!

I wish I could take credit for that title but that is actually the moniker given to the Baton Rouge Zoo's little gala affair that we attended today. My best friend called us early this morning and, pointing out how gorgeous it was outside, suggested we go to the zoo. It was a lovely idea.

Note to self:
The zoo is a much more enjoyable place when it is
not Zippity-Zoo Day. Unless you enjoy hordes and hordes of screaming, crying, growling children and rude parents who are so busy gabbing on their cell phones they don't think to step out of the way of your wheelchair.

All things considered, we did have a nice time. Yet I have to say I prefer the quieter days at the zoo, when it is semi-crowded, than when it overfloweth as it did today. I find the older I get the more I dislike crowds. Of course, the older I get the less I find I like people in general so maybe it's just part and parcel of my overall disdain for my fellow man.

After a good bit of sun and over-exposure to bad kids, we left. I remember why we only visit every few years.

I know it's a week late, but we had a nice Easter. After dinner found the entire family sitting around the kitchen gossiping about all of the "crazy" people in town (past and present), a particular family member's questionable choice in women, and current affairs. My grandfather stated that should he end up in a situation similar to Terri Schiavo that I have to pull the plug. When I asked why I was being chosen for this he informed me that I was the only one "tough and mean" enough to do it; I'm still not sure if that's a good or a bad thing.

We had a nice time and everyone had gotten slammed with at least one wicked, dead-on one-liner before the night was done. My family are aces at those and no one is immune. What better way is there to show love than attacking one anothers' weaknesses in fun? None, I tell you.

I'll end this pointless ramble now with a little reminder: Don't forget, time changes tomorrow! Set your clocks forward.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested
    to see if it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
    apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had
    to share it with someone!

    You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be actually something which I think I would never
    understand. It seems too complicated and very broad for me.

    the hang of it!

    A fascinating discussion is worth comment. I do think that you should publish more
    about this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but typically people do not talk about these topics.
    To the next! All the best!!

    tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is an issue
    that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
