Pretty much all wildlife is my favorite. LOL We have lots of black bears around here, so I'm learning a lot about bears right now. It will be interesting reading about a very different Atticus compared to the one in TKAM.
I've been reading fascinating books about bears by Ben Kilham and Else Poulsen. I have trouble putting them down. I have a ton of fiction I want to read also, starting with GO SET A WATCHMAN by Harper Lee. You've been rolling out top notch Kamp LOLs!
It was fun. The high Cascade Lakes are just a beautiful place to be. They have a "High Desert Museum" here that we take visitors too which features a lot of local history, indoor and extensive ourdoor exhibits and wildlife. They have visiting exhibits too so still fun to go to even though we have been there quite a few times.
Yep, there have been lots of changes here, some good and some rotten. The most rotten thing, however, isn't here. It's the demise of CATT and Fbastage's behavior in it. It has kindly been called unprofessional, but I have other words for it. However, there are youngsters on ICHC, so I will refrain from using them here. Thanks for the link to the cute excuse LOL. I could see myself actually doing that. I love calendars for their pictures and often am not careful to look at the year. Next Tuesday is my tour (with husband and four other friends) of the Wildlife Center. I'm very excited about that.
Nice to be able to call each day your own :) Been cruising around to check out the changes especially the Community Page. Have to follow it for a few days to see how it works. I had seen a preview of it before launch and it appears to be much the same.
I'm still not feeling retired yet, but I think I will at the end of July. I'm very slowly working on the thousands of things I've had to let go the past few years with all the joint replacements and work to fill my time. My attitude is if I get them all done, fine. If I don't, it won't be my problem. I don't know if that's a retiree attitude or an elder one or both. LOL It's good to see you back on here--a good event amidst another messy Beta deal.
This is wonderful news! Please post the URL for the shelter when you have a chance. I would like to see the site. Hope you will be adding a donation button there if one isn't already in place. Many organizations I support use PayPal for that.
When my niece was in college she got stuck in several group projects with 2 or 3 others and there was always one schluff off the rest of the group had to make up for yet all of them got credit at the same level at the end. I don't think that teaches anything - except preparation for the real world working life I must admit LOL
ROFL on Group Projects. I am sure you have sat in meetings with a cast of thousands and had fun watching people either taking claim for a success and shunting responsbility for failures to someone, anyone else.
Good on getting all the paper ducks in a row so all you hae to look forward to is the retirement party :) Rats, I can't get the link to fully load Just comes up with New Jersey Real Time News and a big blank where the article should be.
This is a rough week, and I'm about to run out of energy before I run out of week. LOL Yes, I'm working on the retirement papers and have appointments with the Social Security office and our system's central office. As soon as those are taken care of, I can sign up online for the state retirement benefits and contact my insurance broker to set up my Medicare supplemental policy and drug card. That will leave only my letter of resignation. I'm glad you are enjoying the daily calendar. My favorite pages are the ones with quotes from characters in the show. Those cheetahs are getting so big I have to look twice to distinguish the cubs from their mom. I'm sorry I didn't see the Today Show with the cheetah cubs. If you like cute black bear cubs, check out this cam: http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2015/02/bear_cam_watch_cute_orphaned_nj_cub_on_video.html Little Mike is adorable, but his story makes me furious. Be sure to check out the entire page with the cam. The story is there and some very cute still pictures. There is even a recording of the sounds he makes as he falls asleep.
Hi how are you? Was one all weekend so didn;t et to see you. Getting all your paperwork together for retirement? Wanted to let you now too how much I enjoy the daily calendar every day. The cheetahs are out and about so much. Tonight they are all snuggled in their "den." On the Today show this morning someone brough in two cheetah cubs and they were so cute. They had big bowls of meat chunks for them so guarenteed they would stay right there until they wolfed them down :)
