    What's new at the zoo Thursday # 544.

    What about a trip to the zoo this week?

    The last time I was near any kind of 'wild' animals was at a petting zoo in CA.

    I fell madly in love with a llama there.

    The DOTD?

    Flaming Giraffe
    2 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur
    1 oz butterscotch schnapps
    1 oz 151 proof rum

    Pour kahlua first into a double shot glass. Add one ounce of butterscotch schnapps. Float 151 proof rum on top and set on fire. Blow out before drinking.

    And I'll finish with a joke.....

    What do you do with an elephant that has three balls on him?


    Walk him and pitch to the giraffe?!?

    Awww - llamas - I love them. Years ago my now 17 yr old grandson went to a daycare on a farm just up the road, where the owner raised llamas. The kids absolutely loved them - she had a couple of dozen or more. Her sister had a small farm next to hers and she raised show goats - and also Pomeranians and Shih Tzu pups. That's where RB Sparky was born and spent his first couple of months before I claimed him. About once a week, the little kids got to visit up close with the llamas and goats - taught many a love of animals.

    That drink sounds good Richard - I'm drinking if anyone will join me. I'm stuck in the house till the water recedes some - knew I should have built that ark!!!
    I've Been Boo'd
    Thanks, Barry

    This thread reminds me of a Simon and Garfunkel song...

    Someone told me it's all happening at the zoo
    I do believe it, I do believe it's true
    It's a light and tumbled journey from the east side to the park
    Just to find a fancy ramble to the zoo
    But you can take a crosstown bus if it's raining or it's cold
    And the animals will love it if you do
    What a gas, you gotta come and see
    At the zoo

    I'm drinking diet 7Up- would anyone like some with me?
    Yikes! I've been Boo'd ... right off of the stage!
    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    I'd join you for a 7Up please. I too love llamas. Today was re-opening day for our zoo here in Calgary following the floods. They're only partially open due to flood damage and a bunch do animals have been rehomed to other zoos. But they are open. A toast to all the hard working folks doing flood cleanup!

    That is not the same llama I fell for in CA....but I love that pic.....

    I also am going to go see the otters too.

    One Giraffe and an ark.....remember you have to fill it with animals!

    Done!

    Karen,

    That is one of my favorite baseball/animal jokes of all time.

    We went to a minor league game on Wednesday and I got to shake the hand of the mascot, Buddy the Bat!
    That was FUN!

    One Limeade?
    DONE!


    CM,
    Are we dating ourselves when we remember S&G?

    One Diet 7-up!

    DONE!


    QoP.
    Aw, I hope they get the zoo back in order soon! I hope all the animals are A-OK!

    One Diet?

    DONE!

    This afternoon I chopped up some tomatoes, shallots, fresh mozzarella and fresh basil (and olive oil, balsamic vinegar and some soy sauce), and set it to marinate for a salad tomorrow. But I want to eat it now!

    That sounds really good.

    Can I sub some red wine vinegar for the balsamic?

    -------------------

    I'll make some bread. A good crusty bread to mop up the plate with!

    Sure - and the good crusty bread will be perfect for the leftover liquids! I just had balsamic on hand, more interesting than the cider vinegar in the cupboard!

    What no one at zoos ever mention, by the way, is as lovely as giraffes are - they drool!

    I first had a Marsala chicken dish and that was my first intro to balsamic.

    I didn't know giraffes drooled, but think about having to keep enough saliva to help the food go down!

    WOW!

    Balsamic vinegar can be excellent, it can be expensive or cheap - it's one of those things that depends on how much you want to pay! I but a small bottle, as a little goes a long way!

    Could I have some tomatoes, please? Ours did NOT do well this year. I always look forward to them and we didn't have a one.

    Sauvignon Blanc too, please! It's nearing the end of that season, too, it's my summer wine.

    Absolutely - good produce markets near me, so I have enough tomatoes to share!
