Thoughts and photos by Lois. It's supposed to be funny, or thought-provoking, or both.

Hello Tucson for a weekend getaway. It has a lot of stoplights, but the Omni is awesome -- you can relax and think about nothing. Also if somebody barfs, (because of a bad strawberry smoothie) on the artificial grass, they get out a wet-dry vac and groom that grass! NICE!
Feet pic: MPG aka Superman, LEG, and the G-girls: SLG, HMG, and AJG. The G-girls have remarkably adult looking feet though they are all under 13. This happens when your dad is 6-6. You are gonna be tall, and you will have proportionate feet.
Good to know: LEG posts a gratuitous picture now and then.
Lastly, the Ostrich Farm at Picacho Peak: FUN! Feed ostrich, goats, deer, and rainbow lorakeets! Little trivia: 1 ostrich egg ($18) = 2 dozen chicken eggs. Hmmm...is that a good deal???? Caption: LEG trying not to look strained with wild birds crapping on her favorite Roxy flip flops. FAIL.

The petting zoo was free (unless you fell for buying the $1, $2, or $3 cup of food) and had the coolest hooved ungulates: Jacob goats (with 4 horns!), a zebu, a yak, a long-horn steer, and a watusi (see second photo). Say wah-TOOO-si, it's fun! Note to petting zoo owners -- they're YOUR animals, YOU buy the food!! There were two particularly aggressive begging goats that were hilarious!
Follow-up edit: I was thinking maybe ungulates are all hooved, so that's redundant, and I checked, and it is redundant. Because ungulate means hooved. Sigh...it's hard being a word girl.
A carnie in a clean shirt is still a carnie. But fresher!
A 41 inch kid looks like a 42 inch kid in a fuzzy hoodie with the hood up.
"Free" is not free
The ostriches on display at the Ostrich Festival need to be easier to find.
I need a t-shirt: "I survived the 2011 Ostrich Festival" but didn't see them anywhere!

Back story desperately needed. Veteran, check. American flag ribbon magnet, check. And, the obvious: wow! How many people who should have this plate do not?!?! Oh wait, I guess if you label yourself that, it kinda defeats the purpose. You need to be identified by a third party.
