What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

Tall Blondes

Of course, the giraffes were a favorite spot for me.

Seeing as how they are my favorite animal-and have been since I was about knee-high.

I have always had sort of a kinship to the giraffe species...maybe because of my knobby knees and ridiculously long legs. Most likely because of my towering above everyone else. I know-it ain't no fun going through adolescence head and shoulders above the boys who are already struggling with their own insecurities. Try finding a date to prom! These girls have their burdens written all over their face. Just look at their eyes. I feel your pain, girlie. I feel your pain.

But just look at it this way- you've got some GORGEOUS lashes! You've definitely got THAT going for you. If used properly, you could get anything you want out of life. Or, so I've been told.

Of course, I wouldn't know.

But between you and me~ woman to woman~ you really ought to consider chewing with your mouth closed. There is nothing that can have the boys scrambling faster than the sight of a woman chewing and sharing the view. Nope. That DEFINITELY won't help in your efforts to find a man.

Just trying to help out...

I love these shots. Giraffes are my very favorite animal. The best ones to me are the straight-on shots. Their faces are so-o-o cute!!

Giraffes are also my favorite animal, though I have no kinship on the height issue...kind of the OPOSITE problem (my goal in life is 5'3", and I don't think I'll ever make it!). Last summer, a baby giraffe was born at our zoo and I just stood their and watched him walking around on his still-wabbly legs forever until my kids were begging to go on to the next animals. They are so beautiful, but that baby was just precious!

Glad you had a great time-

Hi Rebecca :) These are precious! I especially love their eyes from the straight on view - lol!

My sweet Miss M loves giraffes, too, ever since she was old enough to snuggle "giraffey"... So we studied them at LENGTH (lol) last year before trekking to the zoo.

Here's a great tidbit we learned: a grown giraffe has feet the size of a large dinner plate, and one good kick can kill an adult lion!

Love & hugs, Q
