and a Happy Friday to you all.

When at the zoo, it's important not to get distracted by exotic animals.  Yes, sure, you pay money to get in to see them and experience the wonder of nature.  But let's not forget the zoo infrastructure, the glue that holds this zoological extravaganza together.  Storm drains are vital to the smooth functioning of the zoo community.  My grandson knows this.  He also thinks it looks like a good hangar for his airplane.

Now that I am volunteering with babies in a daycare once a week, I can see the world from a forgotten perspective. Looking down from close to the ground and looking up, too. Thank you!
