Yesterday I had an off day --you know the ones--can't really put your finger on why, but just a yucky day. I told Chris about it, and thought it might be because all we do is work around this place trying to do the final things for presentation for sale. It is becoming a task now.
I decided we needed a break. So today we downed our tools, had a bit of a sleep in, had a leisurely breakfast, and went to see my chimps and do some fun things in town for a change. We just don't do that enough!
The local zoo feeds my favourite two chimps at 3:00 pm in the afternoon everyday, and the carer gives a nice informative talk about their care and training. We missed the beginning of the feeding session by about 10 minutes, but Ockie was there to greet his visitors and receive his afternoon juice popper and fruit snacks served on a plastic plate with a plastic spoon. (He is so clever--I am a very proud Ockie lover!) Cassie is a bit more shy and while he will greet the crowd and receive his treats, he prefers his privacy - don't blame him really--But, Ockie is the showman!! Doesn't let down the team!
After we left Ockie and Cassie, I decided to check out the large open air domed aviary that is located near the chimps. (I worry about transporting Squirt by air to Cairns, and need to check out any possible second choices for a good home for her. This of course is a very sad thing for me to do....).
