Is a picture of Mom from the summer of 2004:



with Nephew. At Boondocks, best fish restaurant ever. (She got a real good health report today, full recovery expected, and her PT made her walk a long way with no walker and no cane.)

Is a picture of my cotton yarn:

Somebody stop me

It is clear I'm a little obsessed lately. NO MORE COTTON. (That's 600 grams of colors and 900 grams of plain. Two pounds of plain, in fact. It's gradually and with great pain becoming Absorba - the bath mat from MD Knitting - I'm knitting with FOUR strands held together. OW.)

Here

Is a picture of two of the new giraffes at the Nashville Zoo:

Giraffes

Congo (male) is in front. He's 15 months old and stands 12 feet tall. Either Margarita or Savannah is in the back.

They are awesome.

Your mom is so young (maybe you are, too :-). Hard to believe she's had such a tough go of it lately. Glad she is doing better now.

Heh - in 2004 my mom was 60 and I was 34. :)

My wrists are aching in sympathy already! Your mom's about the same age as my dad. :)

Were you at the zoo this weekend? We went on Saturday. Zoos are great. I love zoos.
