Not headed to Texas today

Well....we were supposed to leave today. But the Jeep would not go into neutral. It did that once before and the problem was fixed pretty quickly. But the guy who fixed it is in Maine, so we need a local guy. Plus it's Sunday, so the local guys are not available. So we have to stay another day and get the Jeep to a mechanic tomorrow. 

We are both discouraged, but I took it really hard. I was prepared to sit on the couch all day, watching MEtv and feeling lousy. Randy, however, came up with a better idea - the St. Louis Zoo. The St. Louis Zoo, which is free to the public, is one of the best zoos in the nation and they are constantly improving it. One of the biggest changes since the last time we were here is the Sea Lion exhibit. A lot of the zoo animals hide or sleep during the day, so it can be difficult to see them. But Sea Lions, like otters, love to play. They were more than happy to entertain the crowds. 
They like to swim upside down; they probably think we look funnier that way. The display area includes a see-through tunnel, to give both sides extra viewing access to each other.
