The Whole Wide World in an instant

The happiness before the tragedy.

I'm having fun - and geting very annoyed - following Twitter these days. The selection of people who post against Trump is impressive - George Takei, Ron Perlman, Michael Moore to name but a few of the more famous ones - and I retweet lots of lost pets, pets looking for homes, and I sign many petitions for good causes, especially animal and environmental ones.

Just to add to the Ahh factor, the ultimate in relaxation is a cat, and this is the ultimate in cat.

Aye-aye, what have we here? Slothful tigers

A little bit of Vincent to get you going.

I have been desperate to get a photo of London Zoo's aye-aye, but they are nocturnal, and so eve when they are visible in the nighttime world, getting a picture is almost impossible. This is the best I've managed.

Aye-ayes are a nocturnal type of lemur. They are persecuted because they look like little demons, with wide stary eyes and an elongated finger to tap bark to find insects, and then fish them out. They are bigger than you think with grey shaggy fur. I love them.

The sloths have a baby. They snuggled up in branches just above the walkway in the rainforest zone.

Dad JaeJae was relaxed as usual even though they've taken his daughter off to Heidelberg Zoo.

Meanwhile mum Melati, having given son Achilles a good wash, rested her head on him.He'll soon be off to Howlett's one of the Kent animal parks I visit, so I'll still be able to see him.

The Dangers of Twitter on iPad and Other Nonsense

 photo Thumbsucker112.jpg

First a sweet memory from Thumbsucker. I have Photobucket and Blogger on my iPad but can't make them do what I want, so I only post on here. But I haven't been here since February. Once I check my emails and read an online newspaper, it's on to Twitter, and I'm stuck there for hours.

Following Trump's latest insanity and pretty kitty pictures. Signing petitions and retweeting lost pet tweets.

My laptop is terminally slow, so I don't often feel like waiting for it to go through its motions. One of my favourites on Twitter continues to be the black jaguar cub Maya.She's getting so big.

I'm still waiting for a date for my next shoulder replacement. I'm getting scared it may interfere with my activities this late spring and summer. Should be off to see May on July 26th.
