Day in photos

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

Today was a rough day down at S&S Children's, my former home away from home. I miss those guys, and my heart goes out to all of them. Those of you who know me know that I don't drop platitudes like that without meaning them.

So, in the hopes of dropping a little happiness, I'll post a few nice photos from our day--the last day with Mom in town.

We went to the zoo at Como Park this morning. Though many of the animals are still being kept inside most of the time, it was a good time. That "walking carpet" is a sloth. Didn't move at all. And this orangutan (I think?) got a kick out of walking back and forth in front of the glass, saying hello to all the students from a high school field trip. And Sam got his first-ever ride on a carousel. I do believe he had fun. Though from the pics, maybe not as much fun as his mom and grandma did!

Later, Beth's folks were over for that early Mom's Day celebration. After the guests had left, and we'd cleaned up the dinner debris (big shout-out to my mom for doing dishes duty her whole visit--holla!), Beth spotted a rare double rainbow. It was a sight to see.

So that's our day in photos. Mom is New York-bound tomorrow afternoon.

It was a Christmas gift from my wife. I'll have to check with her.
Coolest shirt ever, no?

MASSIVE LOL at the "walking carpet". Don't you love the conservatory there?

I didn't hear about this S & S sadness, but it sounds not good :/

Alea: quite a few layoffs, including some of the people I worked closely with and some people who had been with the company for a very, very long time.

PC: if you click on the pic, you can get a very close look at him, including his funny pig nose!

Liz: thanks! it was a headache. i still want to change the header look a bit, but it's nice to fit so much in a small space.

In response to the double rainbow I must quote Tim's cousin who once said this to an elderly lady when he saw a double rainbow: "That shit's double, yo."
