Chance is the one thing you can’t buy.
You have to pay for it and
you have to pay for it with your life,
spending a lot of time, you pay for it with time,
not the wasting of time but the spending of time.

~ Robert Doisneau
French – Photographer / April 14, 1912 – April 1, 1994

Walking through Busch Gardens some days you are lucky enough to get good pictures of the animals. The male lion in today’s quote was just peaking our behind a rock, posing for my camera.

Holy Celebrations continue today as Muslims celebrate the 13th Day of Ramadan, Christians celebrate the 44th and last day of Lent, and Jews prepare for Passover. Christians are also remembering Maundy Thursday or the Last Supper, sometimes foot washing ceremonies are done as part of the Mass or worship.

Today is also Look up at the Sky Day. You can celebrate either by standing up or laying down and looking up to see the clouds.

The food of celebration is Pecan. Whether you call it pea-can or pec-an they are wonderful nuts. So enjoy some and celebrate National Pecan Day. 😉
