My sister, Dottie was given an extraordinary opportunity to live/work in South Africa until May. Yesterday saw her at a nature preserve where she masterfully captured the long lashes of this flirtatious giraffe.
Since I am constantly dreaming of frolicking in a field with baby animals of all persuasions these photos pretty much excited me. Especially the monkeys. I am very very fond of monkeys. I would like to sit in a big rocking chair under a shady tree and just rock baby monkeys all day long. I think I could fit 2 at a time on my lap. The bigger monkeys might not fit on my lap, but there's no reason they couldn't rock beside me in rockers of their own.
My other sister. You know the one that was just here. The one that forced me to go to all of these LA restaurants and eat fabulous food and drink fabulous wine. That one. She has landed squarely back in the middle of a Kansas snowstorm.
Right about the time Eating Sister and I were diving into that guava & cheese empanada in the upper left corner, Safari Sister was getting ready to bite into a smiley sandwich of jowl of roasted sheep head. She's the experimental eater in the family.
It's raining in LA tonight. South Africa sister will be waking up soon. I hope she sends me more photos of animals. Some baby animals would be nice. Baby monkey animals.
