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.

    When someone writes an paragraph he/she maintains the plan of a user in his/her brain that
    how a user can know it. Therefore that's why this piece of writing is amazing.
    Thanks!

    Paragraph writing is also a excitement, if you
    be familiar with then you can write if not it is complicated to write.

    I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like
    yours. It is beautiful worth enough for me. In my opinion, if
    all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you did, the web can be much more helpful than ever before.

    I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

    Many thanks for this article. I'd also like to state that it can become hard if you find yourself in school and starting out to initiate a long credit rating. There are many scholars who are just trying to survive and have a long or good credit history can often be a difficult issue to have.

    I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Excellent work!

    Hmm is anyone else having problems with the images on this blog loading? I'm trying to figure out if its a problem on my end or if it's the blog. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I'm asking you to imagine that reality is stranger and more complicated than you or I could possibly know. And sometimes we get glimpses of it, in dreams or in déjà vu. #TheOA needs your help. #SaveTheOA

    You could definitely see your enthusiasm within the work you write. The arena hopes for even more passionate writers such as you who are not afraid to mention how they believe. At all times follow your heart.
