Fool for lesser things

So this first weekend of summer has been, in the main, wholly satisfying.

Turns out that a family in our congregation has long-ago connexions to my brother-in-law. As it happens, they’re the only family in our congregation, kind of a lonely situation regardless of prickly self-sufficiency. Faced with two sets of young parents and two sets of small boys about the same age and energy levels, Shoemom and I – for whom rushing in where angels fear to tread is a mere recreational diversion – decided to take a chance, mix well and dump into the zoo.

Did it work? Yea, verily, it reached Seventh Heaven levels of heartwarming. Especially when the yearling snow leopard wandered over to the viewing area and put these enormous foofy paws up on the glass in an apparent effort to come and play with these equally active young human critters. Suddenly I was experiencing fulfilment on a level with the Empire of Oprah…and it all made so much sense…Luckily right about then somebody hit somebody else with a can of Silly String, or who knows what you-all might’ve been confronted with this entry.

    Your zoo story is adorable and made me laugh. Empire of Oprah. Hee.

    And icons are equal to crack. Yay icons!

    Thanks. Yeah, we won’t get me started on Oprah…I was working in the bookstore when her Book Club was at its height.

    I fear you’re also correct about the icons – ‘specially if you already have an affinity for bright and clever miniatures, as I surely do. (Incidentally, I stopped by and picked up a couple of yours – v. nice!)
