THIS GIVES YOU AN IDEA OF WHAT THE ORIGINAL FLORIDA LOOKED LIKE..STILL DOES IN SOME AREAS…
I’D LOVE TO GO BACK AND TAKE MORE IMAGES…BUT I’M NOT LEAVING HUBBY WAITING IN THE CAR NEXT TIME…HE SAW ME PERCHED PRECARIOUSLY ON A SMALL DOCK OVER THE WATER AND BECAUSE HE WAS CONCERNED FOR MY SAFETY AND DIDN’T WANT ME TO FALL IN AND GET EATEN BY AN ALLIGATOR…HE HONKED THE CAR HORN FROM BEHIND ME . I’M NOT MAKING THIS UP..THAT WAS HIS EXPLANATION…
HMMMMM…KIMD OF SOUNDS LIKE THE PERFECT CRIME.. THE GRIEVING HUSBAND TELLS THE POLICE HE HAS NO IDEA WHY HIS WIFE FELL INTO THE WATER FOR NO REASON, NEVER TO BE SEEN AGAIN…HE WASN’T CLOSE ENOUGH TO SAVE HER…HE WAS WAITING IN THE CAR..NEVER LEFT THE CAR…HA!….HMMMM…I THINK WORKING ON MY BOOK HAS GOT MY MIND STUCK IN “MURDER” MODE…I SEE POTENTIAL EVERYWHERE!!
Now this is an example of monkey gone wild. Such behavior!! When I saw this I was personally offended…and then I got to thinking..
As far as the assault taking place in this image…I want to know where the monkey police were when this crime took place…
Were they out having a banana break? Were they out taking pony rides? Were they throwing unmentionable monkey debris at the tourists that were visiting the zoo?
Whatever the reason, I feel that the offending monkey police officers should have their badges taken away from them and they should be made to work the stroller rental booth.
As far as the obviously overly aggressive monkey…well!…That monkey needs to wear a little sign for one week that says, “I am a naughty monkey…do not blow me kisses or call me ‘cutie’ or tickle my chin. I am on monkey probation and these things are forbidden.”
As far as the “victim monkey”…I think that this little monkey should get a free manicure and pedicure. I think that the monkey should get to ride on the carousel horses as many times as it wants. I think that it should get to play with the penguins and hang out in the bat cave with the bats. I think it should be able to press its face up against the glass in the lion viewing area and even lick the glass if it wants to. I think it should get a free t-shirt that says, “I am a good little monkey…you may blow me kisses, have your picture taken with me and you can buy me ice cream…you may even peel me a grape.”
I’m not sure that all of the above would fit on a t-shirt, but I think the monkey deserves a t-shirt to wear when he’s with the other mean monkey later on……even if it just says, “I’m with stupid” on it.
Once again, I introduce you to our friend, the Cardinal.
Can you imagine doing this over and over and over? I mean…think about it…they’re like Olympians…they’ve got the cool outfit and amazing athletic ability. I never thought about it before, but do you suppose there are different levels of ability with birds?
Are there Gold Medal level birds?
Are there Silver Medal level birds?
Are there Bronze Medal level birds?
Are there birds who just fly along with average level bird abilities?
Somewhere out in the woods there might be a huge bird arena, with enough branches to seat 10,000 birds. Maybe on Saturdays in the summer they gather on the branches and watch the really excellent birds compete for prizes. Traffic must be a nightmare when the event’s over.
Unless there are police birds who direct bird traffic. I wonder if they blow a whistle when they’re directing traffic?
