ABC Wednesday G is for


Did I ever mention that I really really like giraffes?
Babies taller than you or me?

 Once many years ago my family--Mom, Dad, Sis, nephews and niece, and I--were going to the San Diego Zoo for an outing. They had a new baby giraffe at the time. The newspaper story told us that it was six foot five. Nephew declared, "Wow! That's taller than Sandy Koufax!"
Let's have a bit of tongue here.

Watcha lookin at?

Potluck time.
While doing this post I realized that I also have some really cute gorillas. I think I have posted them before, though. I may have posted these guys before as well, but here they are all together. The photos are from 1. Seattle's Woodland Park Zoo in 2008, 2-4. The San Francisco Zoo in 2010, and 5. The Phoenix Zoo in 2011.

I love Giraffes too. When I saw them on safari in Africa it just cemented my love for them.

Giraffes are so beautiful. And elegant. If my neck and legs were that long I'd be all over the place!
I'd be an embarrassment to giraffes!
