This is what happens when your husband is also a photographer. And you go out for your birthday dinner. And you’re all dressed up, looking good, feeling good. And you ask him to take you photo cos it would be nice to have one on your birthday, to mark the occasion. But he’s so busyContinue reading “Birthday picture”
If I was a baboon, this is where I would want to live. Hmmm… I’m pretty sure I’m not a baboon (though there are those who might disagree, I’m sure) but I think I would still like to live here.
Coupla squirrel monkeys playing in a palm tree. I suppose Peanut the Monkey might have been more tolerable if he could have played in the trees year-round. But half the year he was stuck indoors… I wonder if I would like him more today if I ran into him again.
