I have had it with this year.

Carrie Fisher is the last damned straw.

I was in first grade when the first Star Wars came out.  (I was such a geek that my dad had to build me a rolling R2D2 costume out of plywood and tagboard. It had casters for wheels.  I had to be lifted inside it and the paper mache headpiece tied on with elastic.  Twas awesome.) I was too young to get how amazing it was to have a female lead who could handle a blaster and mouth off to the bad guys, but believe me, I grew up EXPECTING that because of Princess Leia and Lieutenant Uhura.

This year has only gone to show me how little people have learned about the stupidity of bigotry in any form.  I have dumped a few friends I didn't know as well as I thought because of it.

People suck.
2016 sucks.

Animals are awesome though so beware the photodump.  We went to the Miami Zoo and saw the river wolves at last.  I only got one good shot out of about 200 because all otters are hyperactive bastards, but giant otters are worse than most.  It matters not.  I had a joyous time trying.

I am also thinking of publishing a book titled "Photography fails - butt shots from the wild" as I have the most hilarious collection of rumps, tails, and tushies that were ALMOST what I was going for.

How did you last the horrible weather there? I had to look for Myakka Park to see where you were compared to Matthew's path. I would believe you felt some of it. My old manager lives in Miami and since she couldn't take her pups to a shelter when they evacuated her husband stayed behind. He sent her photo updates and she kept us updated and her whole family made it through thankfully.

We had a bit of wind, that's all.  People forget that the cloud cover from these storms spreads hundreds of miles past the high-damage area which is close to the eye.  They didn't even shut schools down in my area.

Your friend needs to talk to their vet.  MGM's work serves as a shelter for critters during storms.  They just need proof of vaccinations.  After Katrina, more human shelters are taking pets too.

That is good to hear! I took the weekend off expecting Typhoon Songda to hit harder, but it hit 40 miles off major catastrophe so we just got tons of rain. I am sure if I worked it would have hit harder. Simon enjoyed watching the little wind gusts rattle the leaves from the couch.

Trooper's carrier was a soft carrier which he was buried in, so I have to still get Simon a kitty carrier for travel and emergencies.

Make sure you get on that is "airline approved."  If you ever (heaven forbid) need to evac to a shelter of some kind, those are the only only they will accept.
