Back To Blogging.



I'm back. Did you miss me? O.K. What clown there said "you were gone?' Anyway, I was hanging with my new friends Elvis and Bigfoot. We have been flying around in a UFO eating peanut butter and banana sandwiches. Not buying that one, eh. I just needed a little break away from writing.

My vacation was nice. My Lady and I went to the Chattanooga Zoo. It is not a large zoo but is very nice. I will be going back, but will go alone. I enjoyed seeing it with My Lady, but she goes a little faster than I like to. Here are some pictures that I took while there.

They have a petting zoo there. You had to walk through the pen to see these Shetland ponies. Behind the ponies was a camel.


I cropped this picture so you would get a better look at this peacock. This is my favorite of the pictures that I took. I am currently using the full version of this as my wallpaper.


The zoo has five chimpanzees. This is the only one that was out while we were there. A couple of minutes after I took this the chimp gave us a different view.

A lot of the pictures that I took didn't turn out as well as I would have liked, but I need more practice. The ones of the more exotic animals were not good. When I go back I'll try again. The day after the zoo we took My Lady's grandson to the Tellus Museum in Cartersville, Georgia. I had heard of it before but I thought it was more of a rock and minerals museum. I was definately wrong. Those are there, but there is so much more. They have old cars, a replica of the Wright Brothers flier, a replica of a Gemini space capsule, a replica of Apollo 1 after the fire, and much more. Once again, I will be going back by myself. I took a few pictures but will post them after I go back. To me we ran through it so I will go at my pace.

I will post one more picture before I leave, this of my partner in crime, Bun. He seems to think he is a cat now. For awhile he was happy to sit on my lap for a few minutes. Now he wants to lay on my chest. I will try to take a picture of him and I will post that when I get it.

Welcome back! I have seen white peacocks and they are pretty, but I just like peacocks in general. Love Bun, too.
