I always wanted to be a zookeeper when I was growing up, and I’ve wound up a zookeeper! I’ve been working with the Los Angeles Zoo for 45 years! I’m the luckiest old broad on two feet because my life is divided absolutely in half – half animals and half show business. You can’t ask for better than two things you love the most.
Remembering Don McLean’s 1971 folk rock song “American Pie,” on the day of the infamous plane crash that killed Buddy Holly, J.P. Richardson (known professionally as the Big Bopper), and Ritchie Valens. We remember The Day the Music Died.
Like that day in 1959, a terrible winter storm is hitting most of North America. Texas is bracing against the snow and ice, hoping they won’t have a major power disruption like a year ago. Meanwhile in Canada it it National Sweater Day. So for all my Canadian family, friends and neighbours, get out your sweaters and keep warm. 😉
One day early we celebrated National Carrot Cake Day at Sleepy Hollow Potluck. The selection is always eclectic at a Potluck. It was so nice to be able to go to a public event. No facemasks required, but we did try to keep our distance. We’re all old people and vaccinated.
Hold on. This week starts with a major change in routines as we begin an hour earlier with Daylight Savings Time. Monday there is a Super Full Worm Moon. Then the week ends with Friday the 13th.
I’m so glad to have my Nikon D750 back. I went for a hike through Estero Llano Grande and was lucky enough to be walking just behind a group of birders. Usually birders are wonderful at finding, identifying different birds and sharing their knowledge with everyone. They pointed out a White tailed kite and several night herons that I would have missed by looking down at the ground and watching for Alligators.
The change to daylight savings time means an extra hour of light after supper to go hiking and see more sunsets.
