Zoo photos

My boyfriend, my father and I went to the local zoo on opening day in April. We both took pics with our camera phones, but his phone is much better than mine — a smart phone — with a much better camera. After some nagging on my part, he finally sent me the photos. I present myself as I really look like from day to day. Most of the other photos I’ve shown to y’all have been posed, and I take my hair down and let it loose, because I think it looks better that way and what’s the point of growing it out like that if you can’t show it off. But I can’t stand it getting in my face, really, and on most occasions I have it pinned up, or at least kept back with a headband. Or both, like that day at the zoo.

Here’s me in the Australian exhibit, having crammed myself into a fake kangaroo pouch designed to fit children no older than early elementary school age. Very uncomfortable.

Here’s me in the petting zoo area, getting my jacket eaten by a goat. The purple thing I’m holding in my other hand is a brush I was brushing the goat with.

And here’s me and the goat again, after I realized Michael was snapping photos. The goat is still eating my jacket. No, in spite of its appearance, it wasn’t pregnant. I asked and the zoo staff said it just had some winter fat.

    I love goats, they are so funny and sociable. When we go to a state fair or anything we always spend a lot of time with the goats and sheep.

      My family used to keep pygmy goats, and milk them.

    I have a question there is this man who is WANTED since 1971 who stole or counterfeited money. His name Melvin Wilson and he is listed as a missing person on namus. Can he be added to Charley Project?

      No. I don’t profile people who are “missing” because they’re running from the law. Robert Fisher, who slaughtered his entire family and is on the FBI 10 Most Wanted list, is also on NamUs. I don’t think either Mr. Fisher or Melvin should be on NamUs, but that’s not for me to decide.

        I’d love to see Brad Bishop caught, too. I think that’s mostly been given up on now, but he was another John List. I really thought they’d get Fisher, esp. after he was on AMW so much (back when it was good). There was another guy, who’s name escapes me, but I’ll always remember the case, it sticks in my craw somehow. NY, he was a father, killed his son who had some sort of disability and his girl friend and left them in a a car trunk. Went on the run, this was back in the 90s. I’ll never forget the interviews with the surviving son, what a nightmare life he had. He should be on the top ten too. I wonder what happens to these fools later down the road…..

    The goat’s a little tubby as it’s probably full of scraps of people’s clothing!
    P.S. Fred Richard Davis, pickup found at Dunes Casino, 1985. I bet the Mob could shed some light on this MP.

    Adorable pictures–and gorgeous hair! (You, not the goat, although it’s cute, too).
