It's sunny and cool here. We did get some rain, so Rozzy is no longer green. Yesterday, I took Candy and her friend and the friend's 5 year old sister to the zoo. We had fun. We were attempting to feed 2 giraffes, but they were involved in amorous activities. The older girls knew what was happening as it was blatantly obvious. Luckily the 5 year old was distracted by wanting to ride the sky ride. We had three surprising and pleasant things to happen to us. First was a lady who was leaving the zoo gave us two cups of animal feed and several seed sticks to feed the parakeets. There is one exhibit where the parakeets fly around and land on a popsicle stick which has some seed on it. The sticks cost $1 a piece, and she gave us at least 12 of them. She also gave the 5 year old a free pass to ride on all the rides. Later, a man overheard the 5 year old talking about wanting to ride the carousel. He reached into his pocket to offer her tokens for the ride. I ran into my favorite family from the preschool. I taught 4 of their children last year. I was happy to see them, but the kids didn't remember me. It's nothing personal. Preschoolers have short memories. I'm off to do yard work.
