First, you may not know this, but Louisville has a new superstar. Her name is Kindi, and she’s a beautiful bundle of joy. She’s a gorilla, born in the Louisville Zoo. Whether you believe zoos should be abolished or maintained, Kindi might not be alive, if she hadn’t been born in a zoo.
Her mother died delivering her, and the gorilla-keeper staff have been on round-the-clock shifts caring for her. They wear gorilla-hair-type suits and emulate gorilla behavior, in order to imprint Kindi with the feel, look, sounds, and behavior of her own kind. When she’s old enough, and successfully integrated with the family troop and accustomed to being viewed, she’ll be handed over to a female gorilla who expresses interest in fostering her.
You can see her pictures, look at her scrapbook, and follow her progress at the Louisville Zoo’s Kindi page.
As you can see from the banner at the top of my blog, I signed up for the Cherished Blogfest at the end of this month. I’ll post about something I cherish on Friday, Sweetie Pie will post about something she cherishes on Caturday, and maybe one of my characters will post about something cherished on SampleSunday. Which of my characters would you like to see post that day?
This is making the rounds, but you may not have caught it yet. Allow me:
While we’re doing videos, go waste spend some time watching sock puppets play heavy metal at Sock Puppet Parody. No, you didn’t need those hours to do anything productive.
What’s that? You have more time in your day? I can help with that! If Epic Rap Battles of History can’t sop up that time like white bread sops up milk gravy, I’ll eat my hat.
My work here is done.
A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: Write about a character who wastes a load of time.
