IT'S ALL HAPPENING AT THE ZOO

Yesterday was a beautiful day in the cultural Mecca of Toledo, Ohio. So ... we went to the zoo. First is a snap-shot of my grandbabby and his new friend, a brass rabbit. His name is "FAOLAN," which is Gaelic for "WOLF." He exclaimed, "GaGa's Rabbit!" And proceeded to tell me that this statue was like my bunnies at home. (Except this one doesn't chew my phone cords).


THE WOLF AND THE RABBIT


STALKER!
While hanging out at the elephant cage, an interesting thing happened. The keepers were hosing down one of the elephants and the crowd was gathered. Next thing I know -- I had company! I sat down where I stood and said quietly, "Just sit still - you will be ok here next to me."

He made himself comfortable and no one was the wiser. Except my daughter who said, "Mom is 'The Bunny Whisperer.'"
























He was a young Eastern Cottontail. In spite of all the squeeling children he sat and ate the brush right next to me. When he saw fit, he dashed away. And then followed us. He hopped through the Lion's area as well! Stopped, looked around and gallivanted away. Danged Teenagers ... they are fearless.

What have we learned today?
That I can go to a zoo with a plethora of beasts from all over the globe - but nothing excited me as much as this little Eastern Cottontail

My new friend.


SING ALONG!
