Rat Race


Some filler until we get to central Michigan late this afternoon. We took Madeleine to the zoo last Saturday. The St. Louis Zoo might be the best in the country, although San Diego has its fans.

So what did we find? A dinky show in the children's area featuring a mouse walking along a meter of rope, through a little box with an inexplicable dollar sign. A depressed macaw (pardon the anthropomorphization). A loitering sea lion. And Ellie herself, emerging from a fake hollow log, clutching her old, tattered lambie. (Thanks again, Auntie Virginia!)

Love that Madeleine took her tattered lambie to the Zoo 😊 Have a good trip Bob, keep safe.

That macaw does look a little down. When I was a kid, my parents would pack us up in the car and drive to St. Louis to go to the zoo. I even saw Marlin Perkins the once.

What kid doesn't love a trip to the zoo? :)

Yes, the macaw looks a bit downcast at the moment.
