It’s 3:28 pm as I flail about at this computer and I do not have a single, solitary photograph of any one of these beautiful ten chimpanzees for the blog. Dinner is served at 3:30 pm. It remains to be seen what I come up with, but I wouldn’t hold your breath for anything too spectacular from me. 😉
The chimp house morning began with a wild-ish pre-breakfast scuffle in which dear, sweet Annie began screaming like a banshee and chasing Burrito around the playroom. We’re not quite sure what Burrito did to vex Miss Annie so, but it’s not really our business outside of tending to everyone’s well-being. Unfortunately, in Burrito’s efforts to avoid said banshee, the incision on his foot opened up a bit requiring him to return to his bachelor pad in the front rooms again for a couple extra days. We were so close! But don’t feel too badly for him. He’s had volunteer caregiver, Lizz, at his beck and call aaalllllll day. Just as she should be, of course, and his laughter could be heard throughout the chimp house. Not to mention I’m pretty sure he’s eaten his weight in snow.
In other news, Willy B went full rockstar in the chute giving the six girls in the playroom a thrill with lots of hooting and hollering to jazz up their snow ridden afternoon. Especially Jody who flung her body against the window while waving at him and doing her patented dinosaur moan of happiness. Honey B has been swinging around and flailing about in stacks of paper all while wearing a green and white striped toe sock.
Oh! Chad saved the day! (Thanks, Chad!!) He just managed to capture a couple photos of Honey B and Mave in fort building mode while they patiently await dinner (which is now a tad late as per the banging on the caging from Negra!!). We’re off to toss the baked potatoes and onions in the snow to cool them off tout de suite!
