Wow. Three posts today. I guess you can tell that with the rain and cold, as well as still being sick, I’m having a lot of fun listening to music, cataloging pictures, and exploring Photoshop. And since we have Mr. Bill the Camel here, I supposed maybe some camel music might be in order. Enjoy “Humphrey the Camel” by Jack Blanchard and Misty Morgan; peaked at #78 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1970.

Although many of the larger animals at the Zoo were out and about, many of them seemed to be all tuckered out after Thanksgiving:

Masai Giraffe at the San Diego Zoo

Happy anniversary to……….me!

San Diego Zoo logo

Pictures copyright 2012 Russel Ray Photos

Today is the 19th anniversary of Jim and me meeting. I was working in Detroit as a consultant in the wireless telecommunications industry. My client flew me home to San Diego every other week, and Memorial Day weekend in 1994 was my second trip home that May. I took two days of PTO (paid time off) so I could come home Wednesday night and go to the Men’s Coming Out Support Group at the Gay & Lesbian Center of San Diego, which is where Jim and I met. Imagine what might not have happened if I had not used those two days of PTO!

Jim and I are going to Pasadena today, mainly to visit the Norton Simon Museum but I’m sure we’ll also get to the Rose Bowl, Pasadena City Hall, and the Pasadena Railroad Station. I was last at the Rose Bowl in 1978. That’s when I found out that it had 77 rows of seats, a great number since I was Class of ’77 at Texas A&M University (Aggies will understand that).

My neighbors across the street are going to keep an eye on our place while we’re gone, as well as come in a couple of times to check on Zoey the Cool Cat. Sure, Zoey the Cool Cat will miss us, but she’ll get over it as soon as I get back and give her food and tummy rubs, and let her sleep on me.

I won’t be able to make it to the San Diego Zoo today, so I’ll let y’all go for me. Have fun!

Red Kangaroo (Macropus rufus)
The largest of all the kangaroos
and the largest mammal native to Australia.
