Fennic Fox

Fennic Fox

We have been back from our world cruise for two weeks. I have filtered through about twelve feet of mail and now have six months of magazines to read. The Lexus started right up after being tendered. My son-in-law kept the motor home and two other cars operational. When I took the eight-year-old Prius to the dealer in response to a recall notice, I replaced the original tires and their detail work has made it like new. The 2015 smart fortwo received its 20,000-mile tune-up. The Winnebago Via underwent its annual oil change service. We drove the Via with the smart car from its winter home in Phoenix back to Prescott. After being gone for five months, a new to us dental hygienist has returned our smiles. We have started daily walks and I have lost about five of the twelve pounds I gained while consuming gourmet food three times a day. We are adapting to life on land after our wonderful adventures aboard the Viking Sun.

We visited the Phoenix Zoo this morning. The normally nocturnal Fennic fox was awake. The colorful face of a mandrill posed in front of a window. Across the way, a Himadryas baboon rested in the corner of a window while children took turns trying to pet it through the glass. One of the Siberian tigers was pacing back and forth. A Galapagos tortoise was drinking from its pond. A Grand Cayman blue iguana stretched out in the sun. I caught the eye of a greater flamingo. A blue heron, Dalmatian pelican, and ibis poised for pictures. Rabbits could be seen snatching food in several different exhibits. Several varieties of blooming flowers enhanced our experience. Work to expand space for the Asian elephants continues. It was pleasant to return to the Phoenix Zoo.
