    Foto Friday-Cold blooded creatures I saw. 

    Murphy’s Law- We went to the wonderful zoo in St. Louis MO on Monday. I had thought I was rather smart.  I charged my rechargeable batteries and brought them in my suitcase in a small Tupperware holder where they fit perfectly.  Well, we had to park about a mile away up the street; Even the pay to park was full. 5 hours in the zoo was wonderful, but tiring, especially as both my husband and myself were slightly sick. I transferred things I needed to have with me while in the zoo to my tote of a purse. Everything was great until after about 10 pictures on my camera, I got a notice saying low batteries. Yep my life. The one thing and probably  the most important item was having the batteries in my purse. Everyone else took some photos, but I got tired of asking them to take pictures like I would, which was every few feet. This was because I also loved all the foliage along the paths. I do not think I have ever been in a place with such diverse manner of flowers, tropical plants, shrubs and have it maintained like that.  No one in my family is into plants like me. They probably took at max 50 photos and that may be a stretch. I would have done at least 500.

    I found zoo pictures on creative commons though. That is not my first choice, but these are pictures of things I saw at the zoo:

    Thought for Thursday- Zoo 

    MEMORIES: I still have this book. One of my favorites. I am hoping to do some postings on the zoo visit we did on Monday. Does anyone remember this book? Is pretty long, but a great story and funny pictures.

    Must have worn my mom out to read this. This was not at all like the zoo we went to. I am still wondering where that place is.
