Got nothin'...


Nothing is flowing from my brain to fingers to keyboard.  It has been a long few weeks, and I am tired.  My beloved returns to work tomorrow at school, and the house will be quiet.  I can write then.

Below are family photos taken at San Diego's Wild Safari Park near us.  We had a grand time, walked all over, laughed, ate ice cream, posed for photos, and loved each other.


These are recently born pacas.



These are people whom I love.





Statue of elephant by tram.  The real elephants are kept apart, not on display for many reasons, some of which are for humane reasons, breeding, and safety.

Be back in a day or so.  Maybe my brain will remember stuff by then.

    1. The rhino is the symbol of the Park, which instituted breeding programs for endangered species. Every school aged child I've ever seen in the Park climbs on the rhino. It is difficult to get them to climb down.

  7. The holidays are so intense and draining!
    I'd be interested in hearing why the elephants are segregated for humanitarian reasons. Not enough display room, or people harassing them. Or both? Or neither?

    1. It' is a story, indeed. Basically, elephants need more room, even though this Park is generous. No animals are caged, but instead have a savannah about which to roam. The carnivores have their own area, with greater security.

  9. Hi Susan,

    The Wild Safari Park in San Diego looks to be a real nice place to visit. I use photos and then just figure out what the heck I'm going to write. Besides, dear Susan, just write when you want to without feeling obliged.

    All the best,

    Gary :)

    1. I never feel obliged...but I want to produce something that is reflective with tuned words. Definitely not feeling the music today.

      I wish you could visit that Park...
