To the Edge of Africa and Guthries

We started out yesterday morning with a little pool time.

And let me just say right now that if my belly was this flat, I would lie down on the ground and let people bounce quarters off of it...just for kicks.

After a while in the pool we got bored and headed on over to the...

And this is what you see in the Edge of Africa. Now remember this is just the Edge of Africa.

This is a very scary pigeon. They are flying all over the Edge of Africa.

And here is one of our little friends from Meerkat Manor.

And here is a hyena. I told joke after joke and he refused to laugh.

But this girl...she thought I was hilarious. She probably is retelling my jokes today.

This is the lovely blue eyed girl with polka dots. This variety is endangered.

We ventured to the water rides. There was a sign posted with this message: You may get wet, possibly soaked.

Here we are, "possibly soaked."

And after our big safari, we headed over to Guthrie's. Because my friend, CoolShellyT from Alabama highly recommended this place. And so do I! But basically anyplace that has the words fried and chicken on the sign means we're gonna be eating there for dinner.

(The Edge of Africa is located inside Busch Gardens, Tampa, FL.)

Whew! I got a little concerned there for a second. I mean, first you didn't warn us you were leaving town and now all of a sudden you're at the edge of Africa????

I'm sorry the hyena didn't get your jokes. Did you tell him the neti pot story? Obviously not.

We miss you Big Nanny!
