Good 57º unbelievably smokey morning. Same yesterday and we topped at 97º.
A special birthday today...
Yesterday for my birthday Brian, Jen, Tucker, Sami, and Jean and I all went to Wildlife Images.
The smoke was the worst I have ever seen. This is the sun in the morning...
And driving to Grants Pass was unbelievable...
(Sadly today is worse!)
Anyway this is a super fun wild animal park where some animals live there permanently and some are brought in, rehabbed, and released. It's owned by Dave Siddon and my old high school chum, Ron Loynds is on their board of directors. Anyway, because Brian knows Dave we got an early special tour. I am putting together photos for a Smilebox.
Here is one from yesterday...
Last year Brian and family took me to Wildlife Safari for my birthday...
And the year before that we went to Great Cats World Park in Cave Junction.... another friend of Brian's owns this and I got some special treatment...
Historically this date....
1944 – Holocaust: diarist Anne Frank and her family are placed on the last transport train from the Westerbork transit camp to the Auschwitz concentration camp, arriving three days later.
2004 – Beslan school hostage crisis – day 3: the Beslan hostage crisis ends with the deaths of over 300 people, more than half of which are children.
And births this date include....
.....one of my most favorite vehicles was my 1969 912 Porsche... what a RIDE!!
Still working on photos.
Thank you everyone for your birthday wishes. It was so appreciated! Love you all~!! xoxoxo
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Sunday. Ciao.

Skyscraper Day is a day to appreciate and admire the world's tallest skyscrapers.
Skyscrapers are truly engineering and architectural marvels. In many crowded cities, space is in short supply, and real estate prices are ever increasing. Building "up" becomes more and more logical. As technical capabilities in construction improved, skyscraper buildings have become taller and taller. In addition, there is a certain prestige to have one of the tallest buildings in the world in your city and country.
