Robin's Roost - rest your feathers!
Welcome to March and, in theory, the start of spring. I know at my house spring actually began springing in January,
then we had winter for a weekend, and spring sprang again in February with touches of summer heat and humidity. At this
rate we'll get to enjoy at least 3 seasons all in the course of a couple of months.
The Tallahassee Museum (AKA The Junior Museum) has their winter/spring visiting animals and they are six Asian Small
Clawed Otters. They are the worlds smallest species of otters and they are visiting our neck of the world for a few short
months right now. To commemorate this event, we will have a group outing to go see them on Saturday, March 4. We will meet
in the area in front of the admissions window at 10 in the morning, I will be the one holding a yellow balloon (which I'll
have to put back in the car as they are not allowed in the park). Once we have all gathered we will have a lovely spring
morning stroll around the grounds of the museum and enjoy the antics of the visiting animals as well as check out the year-round
residents and all of the fun things the museum has to offer. Bring the kids! Or leave the kids home and bring yourself! Or send
the kids and have the morning to yourself (but send a kid-watcher along too). Join us!
We are rapidly approaching the end of the James Bond films, just a couple more months to go. So what shall we enjoy next?
Another series (Pirates of the Caribbean, Hobbit. Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Ice Age, some other)? A specific
actor/actress's body of work? A specific director's body of work? Give it some thought, there are many options from which to choose
- what is your pleasure?
