Last year for my birthday our friends peter and Leigh Walker (The Kids) as we call them, got me tickets for Perth Zoo, so we always promised ourselves we would have a nice day out together. Now fast forward nearly a year and we still hadn’t used the tickets as we have been so busy and trying to identify a suitable day had been difficult, especially with the work thing and also trying to coor...

Zoos
Hi guys, Yes, Andy, I share your two-mindedness where zoos are concerned. For me, personally, Africa spoiled me for them, after seeing so many wild animals roaming free. However, not everyone has or will have the opportunity to be able to visit them in their natural habitats so, in this respect, zoos are wonderful for that reason. These days, zoos also do a marvellous job with the breeding programs many of them now have, thereby ensuring the survival of many species for future generations to enjoy. It is also good to see zoos such as Dubbo in NSW, which is a subsidiary of Taronga here in Sydney, that have the space available to be able to let the animals roam free, in habitats as similar to those in their native lands, as is possible. Have now caught up on some sleep and am over the jet lag - normal lifestyle resumes, once again .... whatever that is. :) Lots of love to you both.

Zoo's
Hi J& T Great to hear from you and thank you for the comments on the blog, thank god someone is still reading it. Also glad to hear you are getting back in to the 'Normal" pace of life, as you say what ever normal is. We hope Mr Teddy is back safe and sound from his Queensland Jaunt, I guess that would be for TT. Our love to you all. Andy and Caroline
