This Is All Lisa's Fault


She said, "Why search for crochet and spinning blogs? Just write your own!" If I could write like the Harlot or Franklin, I'd feel a lot more comfortable having my own blog. But then I thought - I could put up pictures of my various projects . . . . and brag about my future grandchild (check back around November 12). What better excuse to have a blog?

We spent Wednesday at the San Diego Wild Animal Park with Rachel & John. They drove out from Colorado to participate in the Photo Safari that we gave them for Christmas. It was free admission day at the park but it wasn't as crowded as we thought it would be. And the temperature was comfortable, with a light breeze. The most exciting happening was the rare opportunity of viewing Train Engineers in their Natural Habitat.


Our train broke down on the first bridge . . . . right over the lion and tiger enclosures. The tiger had no interest in the goings-on; he was content to sleep in the shade. The lions, on the other hand, decided that the possibilities for food had significantly improved. They had been sleeping well away from the tracks - but ended up prowling right below us for most of our hour-plus sojourn.

Rachel promised to send copies of the photos she took while up close and personal with various members of the animal kingdom on the safari. Yeah. Right. Rachel is not, um, prompt about sending photos. Maybe it's genetic - my mother would keep rolls of film for years before having them developed. At least Rachel gets them developed. Most of the time.

Congratulations on your first blog post! I'm so proud of you. And major props for jumping right in and using pictures (with different alignments no less!) and incorporating links.

I couldn't be prouder! :)

Love your blog! I'm impressed! Great picture of your kitty on your crochet work. I was wondering how your trip went. The engineer techs sound exciting. Ha!
