I went to the zoo today with two of my boyfriends - and their dad. David has Connor and Ian for the weekend while Kim is visiting her family, so he picked me up around 10:00 and we went to the zoo. We put the boys in their strollers and walked and looked at animals, chased the boys down as they ran around and fed them junk food. They are well past the "toddling" stage - when they get out of their strollers they RUN as fast as their little legs can carry them. We left after a couple of hours and they were both fast asleep when David dropped me off. It was fun to spend time with them.Saw a story yesterday in the Metro paper about a tribe of monkeys in India. Apparently one of the tribe's female members was accidently killed, and when the police came to remove the monkey's body, her infant refused to be separated so they took him with them to the police station. That night, about thirty members of the monkey tribe broke into the police station, took the infant monkey and left.
And speaking of stolen animals, there is a huge uproar in Australia over a grey and pink galah (a type of parrot) named Hector that was stolen from a pet shop in Sydney. For the past 31 years he sat at the front of the pet shop and greeted passers-by. He was last seen earlier this week being carried off in his cage by a grey-haired woman.
And while we're on the topic of Australia, we've worked out the New Guinea flights - *whew*! We will end up with tickets on four different airlines: Cathay Pacific, Singapore Air, Qantas and Air Niugini. We also end up with a nine hour layover in Brisbane, so it will probably be worth it to get Australian visas and go hang out for a few hours in the city.
Dad called tonight to make sure that the cell phone works. He leaves on Monday for the Black Hills, Cresco, Iowa and Faith, South Dakota. Hope he has a great time! Mom is going to stay in Billings with Aunt Junie and Carol.
Well, back to the case studies. I have two more case studies to finish before classes start tomorrow night.
