We decided to add a little Christmas cheer around here. Mollipop and me would like to thank LadyJava at LadyJava Creations very much for all of her hard work. We hope you like it. It has cheered us up a whole bunch. LadyJava use to do all of my blog makeovers at my old blog and she is 100% dependable, honest and very good at her job. Click on her button below if you too would like a little sprucing up.
Thank You LJ!
Mollipop is always excited when her Auntie Pam comes to visit. Especially when Jack and Jill come with her. Jack and Jill love to come visit me, their grammy because they get to run and play outside all day. They live in an apartment in the city so when they come here they have a ball playing with Molli and of course chasing the cats! Once Jack was mistaken for a rabbit and a hawk tried to get him. He is a wee thing and instead of running he sort of hops. Well, needless to say it was months and months before he forgot that incident. It's just been during the last few visits that he has quit hiding under the bush in our backyard and has starting playing again.
Take Patrick for instance, He is the gorilla in the picture below. We met Patrick last year at The Dallas Zoo and it was love at first site for Pamela. I have to admit he is pretty amazing. But while we were visiting Patrick was not a happy camper because he didn't like the girlfriends they had with him and he was not in his regular habitat. You see he had broken a window out on the other side and they had to move him.
On the day we were there suddenly we saw people running and the loud speaker announced for everyone to please leave the area. We had just left the viewing area for Patrick and that's where everyone was running away from. What does Pam do? She starts running as fast as she can to see what Patrick has done. Please keep in mind, people were shouting warnings "he's breaking the glass" as they were passing us going in the opposite direction! I was chasing Pamela just in case I had to defend my child from a 400lb. angry gorilla, .
Now stop and think about this for a minute. They are telling people to leave the area and they may have to evacuate the zoo and people are running for their lives right by Pamela in the opposite direction and shouting to her about a possible gorilla escape and what does DR. Wright do? She runs as fast as she can to get back to the very area where an angry 400lb. gorilla is possibly on the loose.
I finally caught up with her. She was standing about 3 ft. away from where Patrick was working his finger through the glass he had broken. Finally after pleading with her for several very long long minutes I convinced her to get back.
She took some class mates on a trip this year to visit Patrick. Pam taught a 'Women's Memoir' this year and one of the stories was 'Gorillas In The Mist'-the story of Diane Fossey. They had a great time and all swear he behaved beautifully. Of course we are going to visit him too while she is here. The zoo finally let him back in with his two favorite ladies and now he is happy! At least Pam told me he was happy when she and her students visited a few weeks ago thier field trip.
I hope he stays happy too!
~Happy Weekend Everyone!~
