Someone Told Me Its All Happening At The Zoo

Good news, first. He has been found!  I received an email just now from my friend Chantel.  Her brother has been found!  I am so relieved.  It turns out he had car trouble.  Border patrol had him call home when he got there.  He only spoke momentarily to his family, but he spoke with them.  He still is having cell phone problems, but they are relieved he is safe on US soil again.  I guess he had just returned from Afghanistan to his base in Alaska, and was heading home.  Thank you so much for your prayers for him!  Thank you from the bottom of my heart.  He is safe.

Now, on to new news.  Today we went to the zoo.

Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel said it perfectly.

The monkeys stand for honesty,
Giraffes are insincere,
And the elephants are kindly but they're dumb.
Orangutans are skeptical
Of changes in their cages,
And the zookeeper is very fond of rum.

Zebras are reactionaries,
Antelopes are missionaries,
Pigeons plot in secrecy,
And hamsters turn on frequently.
What a gas!  You gotta come and see 
 At the zoo.
