Throughout the day, I had several ideas for things I wanted to share on the blog. They were all just small things that happened. Everything doesn’t always go as planned, as you may know. Every single time the idea would pop into my head, by the time I got the camera out (either the DLSR camera or my phone camera) the thing I was going to write about vanished. I was, however, still able to get snippets of each thing.
First, I randomly took a photo of a toy school bus inside Jamie’s greenhouse after we got done cleaning it.
I didn’t know that a short time after I took this photo, Jamie would utilize it.
During lunch, she was putting portions of her meal into it and bring it along with her. This is the only photo she allowed me to take from this far away.
Second, as we were cleaning her greenhouse, I was scrubbing the walls when a little friend gave me a startle.
This little frog was just hanging out watching me clean. Nobody seemed to notice them after we gave them access back to the greenhouse. They were more interested in the spread of lilacs we had placed in there for them. Jamie even sat directly above the frog without a single notice.
Speaking of lunch things, one item everyone was served was a romaine heart. You wouldn’t expect anyone to be excited for romaine hearts, however, the chimps LOVE them and were very excited for them.
Rayne took hers and found a secluded spot in the Riverview Greenhouse, away from the commotion of the food peering that was happening inside the playrooms.
After lunch, her group went out onto The Bray. As some were going out, others were going in. As you might suspect, there was a little bit of a traffic jam on the boardwalk. Three of the biggest boys were the cause of this jam. From left to right: Willy B, Terry, Cy
Lastly, there was one final patrol on Young’s Hill before dinner was going to be served. Here are Missy and Burrito returning from the great outdoors.

Yep, someone said it the other day, Chad: the Bray is gonna need a bigger (wider) boardwalk! it reminds me of watching Annie Foxie and someone else try to avoid the snow by balancing on the log, and someone doing gymnastics to get back over Burrito, who had decided to sit outside with his food or his snow or something.
I am glad that that little frog escaped the clutches of Negra!
I also imagine that those who like to savor their romaine hearts (which I enjoyed myself for dinner tonight) have to stay far away from Willy B, who can throw them down pretty quickly! I can almost hear his teeth clicking now.
Thank you, Chad.
The only thing better than a yellow bowl on wheels is a yellow bowl on wheels with windows, good thinking Jamie!
If they see the frog will they be frightened of it or eat it???
Linda C says
Neggie has eaten one before :sweat_smile:
A couple of weeks ago Mave was very upset, because she had heard a strange noise on the bottom of the greenhouse; she was on one of the islands….
It turned out to be a lovely tree frog.
The story did say nothing about eating it….
Linda C says
Read carefully. I said Negra has. And she has.
My comment was ment as a ‘tongue in cheek” to your Negra-story…..( see, I Did read carefully….? ).
Well Chad, I don’t know how great your story line would have been if everything you had planned turned out ( like that will ever happen) but it would be hard to top this. I love Jamie’s lettuce Bus. So very creative.:revolving_hearts:
Jaime …your just to Cute for words:heartpulse: I guess the Frog doesn’t have time for the Drama on the other side:smirk: maybe he can hightail it out of there on the school bus?:grin:
Perfect post! Full of new surprises. A school bus that transports lettuce for Jamie, or maybe Jamie was preparing the bus for her secret friend, froggie’s getaway vehicle! Then there’s lilacs, lettuce, and romps with companions on Young’s Hill and the Bray. So many options! So much to do! Never a dull moment.

I’m not sure why, but I am fascinated by the pictures of the little, yellow, toy bus. :bus:. I love how Jamie put part of her meal in it, pretty darn clever of her.
I am still waiting for Honey B to make it out to the Bray. Do you think she is frightened or maybe has no interest in it at this time?
Elaine Reininger says
Loved the school bus photos. Brought an early morning smile to my face
TY for yet another wonderful blog post! always appreciated.

I am so impressed and amused by seeing toy school bus wwith Jaimie’s lettuce tucked ito it! I sounds like she pulled the bus along with her to make the lettuce portable! So clever and ingenious.
“This, little, frog was just hanging out watching me clean” Is the frog still there? How did he get in? Was he rescued?
:grin:Chad is in the business of saving lives…… he saved the last frog…… I’m sure this one is down near the water soaking up the Sun
