Day of the Dead

  
   I like the holiday Day of the Dead and not just for the skeletons (even though they are really cool). It's not that I like the religious side of the holiday, but the idea of taking a day to remember Family and Friends who have died. It's not sad and somber but 3 days of celebration and fun decorations.
  I like the idea of honoring, remembering, and celebrating the lives of loved ones that are gone. There is so much love, respect and thoughtfulness put into the celebration. I stole this comment from a friend who posted on my FB, she said it so much better than I did. 
 
 
 
  
   My figures are on display in my buffet hutch. Next year I need to find a new place because I didn't have enough room for all my skeleton's and photos of my grandparents and father-in-law.

P.S. I like Christmas so much my Christmas cards are done by July. Not this year though it took me until September to get them finished.

ms. L again

 
  
   A few weeks ago Ms. L called and I could tell by her voice that she was excited!  She had gotten bit by one of the exhibit girls (three otters who live permanently at the aquarium) while they were being moved for tank maintenance.
  The down side was a trip to the emergency room for a tetanus shot and a round of antibiotics as a precaution. The up side is since it was one of the "girls" the chance of the wound getting infected or her needing a rabies shot was minuscule.   
   Now she feels like a "real" biologist.
