We had a turtle named Elmer for many years. I am so fond of them. We brought him home from Illinois one summer in my son's pocket through security. Then we had a jar for him on the flight. We had him for many years. About six years ago my husband took him to the stream at his shooting range and set him free. I think of him often. He actually knew his name and would look at you when you said it!
You looking at me?????
This guy was so funny rolling along the window.
They said it is common for them to roll to get to places.
One of my favorite animals.....the giraffe above is pregnant!
See the baby behind the mama....
This baby was adorable,
almost fell several times while exploring!
Protea....don't you just love them?
There are many varieties and we first were introduced to
them when my MIL lived in South Africa years ago.
My $5.35 cent purchase at the Zoo!
Absolutely a day I will always remember.....
(Remember from my previous post
that we ate at The Palm afterwards)
P.S. We could have been at a formal dinner that evening but Mark didn't want to rent a tux and of course I would have needed a new dress! I would have enjoyed that but I think this day was extra special for us just the way it was :)
