Zebras Aren’t For Riding

Garçon!  Where is mah ordehr!?

The peacocks roam free at the Brookfield Zoo, and it’s a lot of fun to run across them as they wander up and down the footpaths.  And then we came upon this brazen fellow.

Is it any surprise at all that I wanted to go up and pet him?

I know, Dear Reader; I know.  But sadly, on this, the last day of the challenge, I could not find ANY pictures of zebras!  Not in any of the three prep trips, not in my prior zoo trips, nowhere on my computer.  There’s a possibility some may be hidden on my phone, but I’ve already spent the last half hour looking and technically, the challenge ended yesterday.

I think Boria has the right idea, it’s time for a nap.  I hate getting spring colds, don’t you?  I have no energy and I fall behind in my wordcount – like for this challenge.  But I’m truly pleased you’ve traveled the month with me, Dear Reader, and visited me as I explore The A to Z of the Zoo.

And remember, May 9th is the A to Z Reflections Post Day, and the Linky List is open from May 9 to May 13.  Keep an eye on the main A to Z Blog Challenge page for more info and updates, and of course come back here on the 9th for my reflections on my various posts.  Also, if you’ve visited me and I haven’t responded or visited back, please forgive me; I’ve had a nasty cold and do plan to catch up to everyone over the coming days, I promise!


Thank you for joining me for the A-Z Blog Challenge.  If you’re blogging in the challenge, please leave me a link so I can come visit you too.  If you have a moment, please check out these other fine blogs:

My theme on my Knoontime Knitting craft blog is Letterforms In Nature and the Built Environment.  I’ll be exploring my daily round, looking for shapes in the natural world and build environment.

The theme at Noon & Wilder is The A To Z of Chicago.  Since I live here in the city and we have our Chicagoland Shifters based here, I figured I’d share a window into the city, Noon & Wilder style.

The Nice Girls Writing Naughty have a new home, and we’re blogging in the challenge again this year.  Throughout the month you’ll be hearing from each of the Nice Girls, and during the RT Booklovers Convention from April 12th to the 17th, you’ll be getting live convention reports.  Join the conversation!

The Writer Zen Garden’s brand new website is up and running, and we’re bringing you posts from me, Noony; my partner in crime, Rachel Wilder (the Wilder half of Noon & Wilder); the talented Darla M. Sands – a blogger in her own right, see below; as well as Grace Kahlo, Evey Brown, and author Tina Holland.  Check it out!

My friends who are participating in the challenge (and if you’re not on this list, tell me and I’ll add you!):

Write on, and Happy Blogging!
