Why yes, I have been enjoying Shark Week and Shark Fest. Why do you ask?
Of course, there is no shark like the Great White — the ultimate predator – so I can’t really include Great Whites in my list of Top Three Sharks, because they truly are in a class all their own. So what are my Top Three Sharks?
#1 is the MAKO. They are crazy insane – just look at their eyes! And their teeth – my god, it’s like some sort of alien monster. And SO DAMN FAST.
#2 is the Great Blue. Because they seem to be the most graceful of all sharks.
#3 is the Basking. True, they are not “sharky” in the traditional sense of being able to bite you in half, but holy cow, when they open wide, they REALLY open wide!
Little-known fact: sharks and horses do occasionally enjoy an oatmeal-like snack!
Picked up both of these critters at Amazing Toys on Saturday – funQ
I got to feed bison!!!
I recently had one of the most wonderful experiences of my life – I got to visit some bison!
Roy and Shellie have a small bison ranch near Great Falls, and they were kind enough to let us visit a few weeks ago.
The young bison are out front; they are about a year old. They absolutely *love* eating loaves of bread (from
JJs bakery!). The smallest one is named Goliath, and he was a little bit shy.
Then we hopped into Roy and Shellie’s SUV and got to drive to the “back yard” where the adult bison live – and WOW.
The big fella is named Squirrel, and he is as majestic as you can imagine. There were a few calves, too – and no, we did not attempt
to put one in the back of the SUV.
There was also one pregnant bison who kept her distance – she was due to have her baby any day.
HUGE THANK YOU to Roy and Shellie (and Kim and Andrea!) for letting us visit these beautiful bison!
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT: Don’t forget – these are BISON, not BUFFALO.
There is a difference.
A little visit to hang out with the geese and their TOTES ADORBS little babies near Elks Riverside Park on Saturday!
The babies are just so cute. One of them was eating a dandelion. I love how the mommy and daddy gooses shepherd their babies across River Drive.
Maybe it’s my imagination, but doesn’t this cow look…almost, well…happy? He’s got a little grin (maybe a bit mischievious?) on his face.
From my amazing friend Kelly (owner of
Treat Animal Wellness down in Boz!) — this has got to be the MOST AMAZING BIRTHDAY CARD / GRAPHIC / IMAGE EVER CREATED IN ALL OF HISTORY. Thank you Kelly!!!!!
Remember, kids — there is never NOT a good time
