The Wilds, Cumberland Ohio

Mark and Erika called Saturday night and suggested we meet up at The Wilds.   Cumberland Ohio.  I took the New Concord Exit on I-70.

I said, sure I’ll meet you there! I was excited cause it was unexpected.  And who knew this place was so interesting?

It was about 130 miles for me to drive there and they drove about 90.  We took a 2 1/2 hour bus ride tour throughout the 10,000 acres and saw lots of wonderful animals.  Most are endangered in the wild and this conservation facility(non-profit) gives them the protected place to reproduce.  It was a beautiful day.

25 cents in a machine and you can get food for the catfish.  They act like they have never eaten before or will they ever eat again. I know these were Jack’s favorite.

The catfish are not particularly attractive to me.

Down on the farm in Virginia.  Mar said it was dark in the barn. Thanks for a fun guest blog. We don’t see this in the city!

Lots of new life appearing at your neighbor’s farm.

Springtime action in corrals and pens and barn.

Pizza Chef Again in E.Rossi & Co. Windows- Grand and Mulberry Streets

Religious statues     Taken the week before Easter, on Spring Break vacation in New York City.  Found the second window picture with the nativity scenes tonight and the pizza man reappearing which I’d missed the first time.

The little girls’ mom is pointing out the Mary riding on the donkey with a hand on her expectant figure.       Nativity and Pizza Guy
