Zoo field trip

Last Thursday, I joined M's first grade class for a field trip to the Fort Worth Zoo. I hadn't been to the zoo in a few years; I ended up enjoying it just as much as the kids did.

The phrase "monkey in the middle" comes to mind here...

M's teacher put me in charge of him and his friend, Z.

The parakeet exhibit was one of the kids' favorites.

Foam is where you find it - the zoo train.

another fine entry from Farmer Burwash

Among the small list of blogs I regularly visit (i.e. three or more times per week) hoping to see an update, is the Rambling West blog by Martin Burwash, a railroad enthusiast, photographer, author, historian, feed mill worker, farmer, and philosopher from Burlington, Washington.

For many years, I've enjoyed his ramblings and photo essays that he shares with the ObsCar list -- as well as his occasional article which graces the pages of Trains, Railfan & Railroad, or Railroads Illustrated.

Check out his latest entry on the topic of "Turning the Good Earth" . If Rambling West is not on your list of blog subscriptions, it should be.
np: Willie Heath Neal - "Whiskey stains"

Back attcha, Wes. Your blog is a regualr on my list. Your photos of signs and buildings are a real treasure...a historical record that will prove invaluable for future generations.
