Peeps story

So here’s my story, that family reunion we went to and Debbie stated her thoughts on an African Safara, I said I’ll go with you, not knowing what I was going to have to do to go. That was the only topic for 11 hours back to Fla.
Linda and I talked for hours, how much, when will we go, can we swing it money wise. Once Debbie told me how much, I almost had a stroke. Talked to Linda and said, theres no way we can afford that. Then Debbie came back with a bigger number. I called her and told her no. Sorry can’t do it. Well I talked with Linda and said, look its not fair for me to spend that kind a money for a vacation just for me. So, I went and got a part time job. Saved up most of the money and now I’m going on one hell of a venture.
Debbie, I’m so glad that I’m going with you and thank you for putting it together. It will be worth the whole trip when I get that picture with a Cheetah on top of our vehicle. Its just over 2 months away, and yes I’ve been packed for a while now. Two years in the making, 2+ months to go. there will be lots of pictures to show when we return. See you soon Debbie…..And a special thank you to my wife Linda, for understanding and putting up with me for the past 25+ years, and for helping me make this trip come together. Thank you again…

My road to Tanzania…

Well, we are exactly three months away from departure and I have finally taken a minute to sit down and get this blog site started. This is my first attempt at “blogging” so bare with me.

For those close to me, you know I have been an animal lover all of my life. I have brought home everything from baby opossums, cats, dogs, chickens…you name it! But there is just something about the “BIG” cats. As a little girl, my favorite movie was Born Free and it remains my favorite movie today (if you haven’t seen it and you are a lover of lions, it’s a must see). Mala got me the video years ago, which I believe I wore out the 1st year. I think I have had three cats of my own that I have names Elsa over the years. Now I get to finally see the “reaI Elsa”. I remember trying to get Krysta to watch it with me when she was little and her exact words to me were “mom, is it even in color?”. Needless to say, she was not a fan of the movie like me, but has suffered through my obsession all these years.
