Thursday night Darla got the wild idea that we were going down to Colorado Springs to visit a friend of hers over our 4 day weekend. i didnt feel like the long drive but after some negotiating i agreed we would go. so we left Friday morning at about 9 am, i drove all the way down to Gillette WY before Darla took over. needless to say Darla got a speeding ticket before long, i was smart and played nascar through Montana she tried it through wyoming and got a $110 ticket for doing 87 in a 75. i took over again in Cheyanne, stopped and got $150 worth of fire works for her friends husband(the ones that are illegal to sell in CO) and off we went. i played nascar through Denver(I HATE DENVER!) and we hit Colorado Springs by 10:30 pm, not a record but not bad time either considering the stops we made.
Saturday we lounged around on the porch drinking pop and catching up. Sunday we went to the zoo and then i got ahold of Jeremiah Harris to make arraingments to make a quick stop over to see his collection and set up(one of the affore mentioned negotiated terms with Darla)
it is an excellent setup and i have to say those pics of his N. jacquelineae do it no justice, it is absolutly stunning in person. he was a wonderful tour guide, i wish i could have stayed more than the 15 or 20 minutes i was there.
after we left Jeremiahs we went back to Robins and a friend of heres was there looking to off load a puppy, it turns out her son was allegic to dogs and she couldnt keep her so now we have added a pure blood Schipperke to our lil zoo. beautiful lil 2 and a half month old pup. looks just like a lil black bear cub. ill get pics up later this week.
we drove back yesterday and it was uneventful.
