fun and sunburn

April 30, 2007 erinstine

It has been all kinds of lovely around here lately.  Benj and I had two whole days together (no baseball or working) and we kept ourselves pretty darn busy doing things like:

1. The Blue Owl, in historic Kimmswick.  A deeelicious bakery and restaurant, with the famous levee high apple pie (and a very tasty broccoli and ham quiche as well).

2. The excellent Martin Sexton .  Performed at The Pageant.  He played lots of old stuff, like Candy, the Diner song, Black Sheep, etc. – and some stuff from his new album, which sounded great.  I love these musicians that are just simple folks who have to play – not showy or dramatic, but like somebody you might want to hang with.  Plus, there was a melodica.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, I like a spectacle too, but comfortable is nice

3. The zoo.   I love it.  My favorite animals to watch are the otters and the giraffes.  Can you guess what Benj’s is?

    I’m going to say the penguins. I would guess it to be something active rather than just majestically beautiful to gaze upon as they lay sleepily in the shade (big cats, etc.) It’s been too long since I’ve been to that zoo, I can’t remember what they’ve got and I’m too lazy, er majestically beautiful, to look it up. 🙂 So, penguins, I’m sticking with penguins.

    I’m going to go with Kodiac bears, and Jason says lemurs. Do tell!
