“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

we're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo... how about you, you, you... you can come too, too, too.... 'cos we're going to the zoo, zoo, zoo !!!

that's my fave childhood zoo song.
and my fave childhood zoo joke is:
Dad: i hope you're wearing your hat.
Kate: why?
Dad: so we don't get you confused with the monkeys and leave you at the zoo.
(cue: laugh now)

of course, we all *loved* the monkeys: we even went back for a second visit !!! and we made all the "oooo ooooo eeeeee eeeeeeeee" noises and chose our favourite monkey etc...
but look!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

at this Zany Zebra,

Gorgeous Giraffes,

(isn't he beautiful?? i finally worked out the *camera zoom* today - oh, alright, S9 told me - after two years of "hang on, i need to move closer" photos. at least i'm admitting that.)

and Reclining Rhinos....

(yes, we played "in my grandmother's suitcase" and all sorts of other ABC memory-games on the one-and-a-half hour car trip home!!)

there's something about the African animals which make my heart sing.
J11 aka Charlie has posted more pics at his brave blog.

Glad you had a good time! I'm thankful now that we live so close to the Cleveland Zoo. Definitely not an hour and a half! We'll have to go sometime soon.
