My View From the Zoo: An unexpected trip to London and a fabulous weekend!

My View From the Zoo: An unexpected trip to London and a fabulous weekend!
How awesome is it that it’s Thursday, and I’m still pumped after a fabulous weekend? What we thought was going to be a weekend comprised largely of meetings and a “work” type atmosphere turned out to be so much different than I had imagined. We’d jumped at the chance to attend the Legion Zone Convention in Gananoque just a few... Read More

My View From the Zoo: Wishing the very happiest of birthdays to a lady we called Yabut

My View From the Zoo: Wishing the very happiest of birthdays to a lady we called Yabut
Today marks the birthday of a very special lady. Over the years she has been a fabulous friend and confidante. We chatted through my cancer, roomie grief, and several bouts of chasing the wind among many many chats of hobbies and interests, and the pursuit of happiness and that was before I even made it to Ontario.  Since then we...

My View From the Zoo: He’s Coming Out – Oh to be Happy and Gay

My View From the Zoo: It’s all fun and games til the fish swim out of the tank!
Today would be a bittersweet day, I’d told myself going into Tuesday morning.  After all, we’d over done it walking Monday, and had the appointment at the cancer clinic so we were tired – not the best start – but today would have been Dad’s birthday.  That alone overshadows almost everything.   All things being relatively equal I really didn’t...

My View From the Zoo: On Facebook Memories, and Trips Around the Sun

My View From the Zoo: On Facebook Memories, and Trips Around the Sun
Celebrating 7 years of community Facebook memories are a funny thing. Sometimes the items it chooses to share remind you of a time you’d forgotten about or perhaps just when something transpired. I love seeing the archived photos of days gone by, of our 3 (not so) little (anymore) bears, and now our grandchildren reminding us just how much they’ve... Read More
