We made a flying trip to the Big City this past weekend.
We had a wedding to attend and then, since there were
several from Mayberry there, we decided to make a day of
Saturday by going to the zoo.
Sister Becky, a Forest Park Junkie, just devised a
scavenger hunt at the zoo to use during her daughter's
16th birthday party. I borrowed it and we divided up into
teams and went for it. My team did not win, but we did
I have to admit though, time spent in the Big City always
seems so frenzied. Perhaps it is because we try to fit in
too many things while we are there. Couple that with the
huge numbers of cars and people and it isn't long before this
country girl begins to feel overwhelmed.
It was with a huge sigh of contentment that I exited my car
under my own sagging carport and was hit full force with the
croaking of the frogs and the singing of the crickets and
the deep darkness nighttime that is unrelieved by street lamps.
