Wow - I'm sure at the Airport a lot..... [May. 24th, 2004|06:11 pm]

Lol - we just dropped Matt's mom off at the airport. We had a lot of fun with her visiting!!!

Yay! I came home and saw that "Alice and the Mushrooms" just sold - it reminded me that I forgot to offer prints of that one - I'll probably get to that when I come back from Kansas City for my trip (eek - I leave on Wednesday - so much to do!!).

I've got a backlog of email to catch up on - I'll try to tackle a bunch of it tonight so it won't be too heavy on my mind while I'm out of town!

I have a couple of commissions to work on too (one is really big!! Maybe too big for my table - I'll have to check) - I'll probably get started on some sketches for that tonight as well. I'd like to get another original painting finished before I leave too. If I end up painting on my camera tonight I'll post a link, but until then I'm off to answer my emails!

When are you going to the zoo? Jillianne and I will be going sometime between now and when we leave on the Monday after the wedding. We just bought a membership to the Omaha zoo, and of course they have reciprocal membership benefits with Wichita and most other places.

The gorilla exhibit in Omaha is really coming along. A year ago they were all in cages, but now their habitats are about halfway done. I don't know if you've been to the Wichita one since we were REALLY young (if then), but the Koch family of petroleum fame has put in a huge orangutan habitat that is supposed to be really great. I think there was a gorilla project going on when I was there a year or so ago.

Word from a first-timer at the Omaha zoo: it took us well over an hour just to go through the big desert dome at the zoo. It has the world's largest indoor swamp, a great penguin display, and tons of other stuff, and in the three hours we were there, I only saw about a third of the zoo. Be sure to check out the three-legged tiger mom!

Very cool!!!

I'm not sure which day we'll be going - that will probably be based on the weather, and when my step-mom will be off of work, etc.

I've been to the Omaha Zoo several times, but not in the past year or two, so I'm excited to see the changes!!!!
