|Letter from Los Angeles
||Saturday | 8 October 2016
Los Angeles, California: After Lucy's
ballet class and Leo's piano lesson, we went to the Los Angeles Zoo. 90° in Los Angeles today.
October means "Boo at the LA Zoo" and the park has many special exhibits and
photo ops for visitors. I especially enjoyed a (very small) maze and a
"graveyard" for animals.
Creepy pet thing
Bone dog or dog bone?
My poser, posing on a snake
Unhealthy, but delicious, snack. The cone was nearly as big as Lucy.
Due to the heat (and the fact the kids are members and go to the
zoo several times a month), we did not stay long, but surprisingly, saw a lot of very active
animals this morning.

Today, Mom said yes when Leo asked if they could
pose in the photo booth. Lisa asked the kids to make different (smiling,
scary, etc.) faces, and Lucy
and Leo posed as requested.
Unfortunately... even though I ran out at the last minute to
purchase the ingredients for Lenny's Super Top Secret Dip, and we all
consumed said dip while watching the game on television in Los Angeles, the
Ducks (wearing 100-year throw-back blue and yellow uniforms) lost to the
University of Washington Hustkies at Autzen Stadium.
Wait. Did I say lost? Is 70-21 a loss, or an actual a$$whooping? It was
awful. So awful. It is so difficult to wrap my head around the fact that,
two years ago, this team played in the national championship game.
Until my next update, I remain, your bummed correspondent.
