Christmas is about to begin.

Uncle Steve will be arriving soon.


I went to the Wellington Zoo this morning. I had a bit of time to kill before taking Steph back to Nuova Lazio.
I took some pictures - hence my hillarious The Curmudgeon working out post.


Sometimes Steve visits people on the way down.


This pig is part of the space in the zoo where you can get up close with some animals.


Unfortunately you weren't allowed to pat the lioness.

Soon it will be time to have a wine and prepare dinner for Steve.


Actually this is what I'll make for tomorrow's lunch.

I'll pick up Aunty before making the lasagna.


Shelley bought a big book home to keep Steve busy.



Not The Bible. It's actually a book about James K. Baxter talking to some other guy.


Baxter
Not the biblical Baxter.

George and Rod and I will probably play some music in the afternoon.

Steve will probably have a sleep.

So will Aunty.

I'll probably play my guitar.


We might play Take The 'A' Train.


Some wine will be drunk.



Then we'll all go to bed.
Another Christmas done and dusted.

Steve will still be there in the morning.



I enjoyed my visit to the zoo today. I got in for $18 (instead of $24) because I'm a pensioner.

And I thought humour was dead in Nuova Lazio.

Hilarious.

Robert ha detto...

Is not it disconcerting to see those Chimps look back at you with a fixed clear gaze saying "Why am I in here and you are not".
There's an idea. Pay a couple to stand naked and walk around in a cage too!

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Depends on the couple as to whether that's a good idea or not.
If, for example it was Richard and me then I doubt anyone would pay good money but if it were say, a couple of Victoria Secret models then it would be different.

Robert ha detto...

A tiger might say the specimen on display is ugly.
The chimp has to be in caged with a group of different personalities and appeal.
Reconsidering it we need overweight people in the cage to make it fair!

THE CURMUDGEON ha detto...

Are you saying that Richard and me are overweight?
How dare you. You haven't seen us naked so you're just making assumptions.
