Milwaukee Zoo March 2, 2010

You know you all call me sweet and none but maybe a handful of you know me personally.. I like my friends knowing me though and I love everyone of you here.. I love my friends I have.. Well yesterday we went to Milwaukee to go to the Zoo again.. Its been a few months and boy does my new camera take some awsome shots. I have some vids too on this trip.. Anyway we were down town going to out favorite used book store..He wasnt open yet so I looked at Jeff and said there is another book store down the street. It was a Borders Book store.. So we hiked the extra two blocks.. While we were getting ready to cross the street this man comes out of a lobby and asks if we have any money to spare.. Jeff asks him if we can cross the street first..Well we cross the street and Jeff looks to see what he has in his wallet.. All he has is a twenty dollar bill.. We look at each other and know what he wants it for so I told Jeff go ahead and when the man walked away I said its up to him and God that he knows what he's doing if he has no home and no food...

But if he wants booze with it that is ok or drugs.. Its up to him.. Well in the mean time we had walked into Borders and walked around and found Kora a book. We found her the original Little House on the Pairie Set.. We only picked up one book.. They were kind of Expensive.. 8.99... And we got Bri a book also just to make it fair. She got the Frog and the Princess..

Now on to our favorite used book store that has three full floors of books.. I mean its packed with books. He has isles of books that you can hardly walk down sometimes..I found some more books for Kora but didnt buy them.. They were 3.00 dollars a piece... But they were just awsome books and books I had read when I was a young child.. I got two books my self.. I got two more Elizabeth George books.. They are A Place of Hiding and A Suitable Vengeance.. And Jeff got a programming book for C++.

Then off to the Zoo we go.. Here are the photo.. Some of them are really awsome..I might have to make this trip a 2 parter.Maybe 3.. Depends on if I can get the vids to load. I like my new camera because it records voices.. So you can hear us talking about the animals.. Well peeps here is the start of our newest adventure to the Zoo...



Ok here is one of the vids I took over yesterday if it will load today. I know I tried loading that bowling video and it wouldnt I think it was too long. These are only 2 minutes long or so... I have two of them..You will get a kick of out them both I hope. I just love these little guys here... They move to fast for me to get still shots of them... For some reason I cant get my vids to load with the new camera.. You can hear them when I post them or listen to them when I click on them in the video are on the computer but I cant get them to load on here for some dang reason.. Hold on a minute and let me do a test...ok that wouldnt work either... I might try again tomorrow and do just the vids instead... I have some from the Wild Life Sanctuary from Monday when us girls went by ourselves while Jeff was at work.. But enjoy these.. I have plenty more pix...







This little guy is only 3 years old. The mother in the cage is not his real mother..His real mother was too young to take care of him so they had to find a surrogate mother for him and found this one...



I felt sorry for this guy here.. He has one of his horns off but couldnt get the other one off.. He was romping around and just couldnt get it off.. You could see where he used the other one to get the second one off.. He never succeeded while we were there... He just jumped and was in pain it looked like.. Or very uncomfortable.


Elephants... My hubbies inlaws...LOL....The last time we were at the zoo one of these two was painting.. I never got to see it but was told that the painting was auctioned off and it was sold for like 250 dollars.. It went as a donation for the Zoo but still pretty cool...




My favorite.. The girls werent suppose to be that close to the glass but they were... I want this one made into a bigger photo but I deleted all photo's earlier... Yikes.... Poor me... The only thing between the girls this animal was the glass..









Well enjoy these please. These are my favorites out of all the ones we took yesterday. There are plenty more but these are my favorites... I have a horror story to tell while I am at it also.. This woman was wondering around with her small child. He looked old enough to be potty trained but of course wasnt or she didnt care... It was just gross and it seemed like every where we went she followed us with this stinky kid.. Jeff wanted to say something but bit his tongue... Life and children... Take care of them dont confuse them by letting them do one thing and saying its ok we are out go in your pants.... GROSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Anyway I am done for today. I will make rounds tomorrow..I hope everyone has a great week. I am still here but just not posting as much as I wasn and visiting. Sometimes I visit every day but just dont comment and I just read.. I have been working on new items for my Etsy shop. Wait till you see what I have made now.. I am almost done with it. Its a sweater with a matching skirt.. Who ever buys it will have to buy a white shirt to go under the sweater since the sweater doesnt button. I havent figured buttons out yet so its got a pink edging and beads on the back of it.. Its cool. It fits Bri.. I havent gotten to making one that fits Kora yet.. Soon I hope. I need to finish my Just like Daddy Set also.. That is suppose to be a hat, scarf and wallet set.. Yikes.. So many idea's but just not enough time... I am always bouncing...Something going on always in my life.. Talk soon.. I promise..

Ok now i am pissed off at FB...I cant even upload recent pix of the girls.. I cant find my public pix on my computer in there to upload pix.. It has pix up to 1/23/2010 and it that is it.. I have just uploaded pix because you guys are looking my most recent pix.. I just dont get it.. With my new camera the pix are under my public file on the computer and it says i have no pix in that file.. I hate FB with a passion..I have no idea why i do it..About ready to give up on it again. I only went back because Jeff's cousin asked me to. I dont know Jeff's relatives.. Why would I want to have all these people as friends when I dont know them. Sorry A and S if you read that part but its true.

Your camera does take nice pictures! Lucky you.

Glad things are going well and you are keeping busy.

You're right, that new camera takes really vivid shots with good color. Looked like a fun day at the zoo.

Looks like a fun trip to the Zoo. I must admit I have a real problem with Zoo's...The confinement of Animals is just wrong. Taking them from their natural environment feels very very wrong to me...And the illusion of space in these confined spaces doesn't do it. If I were one of those animals I would like to truly be out in the open space that is a painted backdrop.
I know it is great for the kids to see the "real" thing, but at what cost to these beautiful animals?
Sorry, that's just the way I feel about it.
Glad you all had a good time.

is this a Kodak Tweety ? Pictures are gorgeous. Camera is just an instrument. Its your imagination which makes the picture beautiful.

Rauf yes this is a Kodak Easy Share... I dont have the printer that goes with the camera but they are sort of expensive here..

Great photos. I like zoos, but usually feel a bit sad for the animals...
