No BUTTs About It

Birthday week started out with a family outing to the LA Zoo. If you have never been, it is a wonderful place, not small, though there's lots of hills. We therefore, ordered up one of those electric scooters for mom and she had a blast running circles around us all.

We thought it might be a quiet day... Monday, at the zoo, but as we arrived we saw close to 20 school buses... obviously lots of folks taking in the sights, sounds and oh, yes... smells of the zoo on this beautiful day in LA.

Once through the front gat
es it seemed liked all the swarms of kids headed off to parts unknown, and we ran only into packs of them at various points along the path. You'd see a gathering of purple, bright apple green, yellow or red tee shirts hanging about the exhibits then they would vanish again.

In the spirit of
Being an Explorer of the World
I had decided to collect pictures that day of texture and pattern. It gave me another way to check out the zoo dwellers and as it turned out the visitors, too. The photos I am sharing with you here are just a few. It turned out that in my search for the texture and pattern of things I took a bunch of butt shots. Meerkats, zebras, giraffes.... well, you can see for yourself.

Happily Stitchin'
