Stupid Haiku – March 2019

This month’s haiku is the last from my trip to Los Angeles in the winter of 2017. You can feed the lorikeets a sugar water drink when you’re at the Aquarium of the Pacific.  It was awesome!  They just fly up and land on you.  They won’t go away until the water is gone.

Christmas is officially the new season for Jane Austen. I feel like I can say this because the holiday is over for another year.

Disney Reflections

Animal Kingdom and Flight of Passage

Animal Kingdom opened a few years before my Disney Drought. I was never really interested in it. Mainly because I grew up in Miami where we have a world-class zoo. The Metro Zoo, which is within a 10-minute drive from my parent’s house, was a place we visited frequently. I had seen animals from allRead more
