Hey All!

Thought I would drop a note or two to update my post.  Not a whole lot going on at this time. Just trying to get my Australia book put together and look into what all I need to do for school.  I have just 7 classes to go to complete my AA and then try to figure out what I really want to be.  Even at 46, I am still undecided what to do.  I enjoy working with my hands and working with animals.  Yet I am in an office all day.  I guess one of the things I could do would be to volunteer at the wildlife center on Morse Avenue.  That would be a place to go to do something different.  I know that I cannot get my Veterinary degree since I wouldn't make it through school.  If it has taken me 10 years to get my AA, imagine how long it would take me to get my Vet degree!

Just a nice little picture to leave you with...

Nothing like looking at the world through the eyes of a child.  I had helped Thara move to Colorado Springs where her husband is being stationed.  Dalton and I went to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo on my free day. We saw lots of animals there that the Jax Zoo does not have.  They even have mud "huts" set up along the trails for the children to play in and explore! 

The enclosures for the animals seemed a bit small, but I guess when a zoo is on a hillside, there is not that much level room to have big enclosures. The enclosures for the cats (tigers, mountain lions, leopards, etc) looked fitting for them being on the hillside.    

I'll leave you for now with a pretty picture...

 Enjoy your day!!!
