My Connection to Superbowl 50

My connection to Superbowl 50 is that my horse, Gavi, and the first Denver Broncos mascot horse, Thunder (registered name JB Kobask), have the same grandsire (grandfather), Bask.

Vacation Day at the Brevard Zoo

Chris and I spent the second day of our vacation at the Brevard Zoo in Melbourne, Florida. We met up with my friend, Maryann and enjoyed a day at the zoo. It had been some time since I last saw my friend Maryann. She played tour guide for Chris and me.

The Brevard Zoo has animals from around the world, giraffes, a cheetah, zebras, jaguars, turtles, a tapir, all kinds of birds and many other creatures. I took a ton of pictures. Here are a few. I will have to post more pictures later.
