I saw baby rabbit. I (and every kid in the petting zoo, I bet) wanted to put him in the pocket for good.

There's always one kid with a pet snake, or who knows somebody with one. They're always hungry ...

Nooooo. It was soooo cute. I saw weird curly haired wild pigs I haven't seen before, too. The smell was nuts.

Because we managed to squeeze in 14km before the weather turned crazy today. Proud of us.

Nearby, the weather was still unfriendly...but the fresh air was electric. No people, quiet nature.

Re: I smiled because...

It is the year anniversary since my Mom passed away and most of my siblings made the effort to "Zoom" this afternoon. Lots of discussion and dissension; my Mom would have been proud

The "God Squad" faction in our family argued against the J&J vaccine and my sister Patte and I lobbied for it. PS..I think we won but what do I know?

I love my family despite our imperfections and disagreements! We all laugh at ourselves and at each other at the end of the day. Maybe that is my parent's legacy... We can agree to disagree and still enjoy each others' company.

That said, boy do I miss my Mom...

Another great day skiing, in the Jura this time. Perfect, sun, great snow and wonderful countryside- and hardly anyone.
