YAY! It's Mr. Bee's birthday!!!!! He opened his gifts this morning. I got him a membership to Valley Of The Kings Large Cat Sanctuary and Retreat in Sharon, WI. They rescue tigers and lions and other large exotics from zoos and other places where they are mistreated or not properly taken care of. They live out the remainder of their lives being safe and cared for at the sanctuary.
Mr. Bee LOVES tigers. Now he can go visit them any weekend for the next year! They have work days when you can help with building pens etc. if you're interested or he can just visit. You can take friends and family with you. It's not open to the public unless you're a member. I've been so excited about this because not many folks seem to have heard about it and it's such a unique opportunity for him to get face time and help out with his favorite animals. We are going on Saturday to visit for the first time and see what it's all about. He was so happy he teared up. And around here it's not a successful birthday until someone cries! :-)
Tonight we are going to Takara birthday sushi for supper . Then I have to come home and tear out a large portion of the latest Branching Out scarf that I've been knitting because last night I had too many stitches, tore back a few rows and then restarted on the wrong row so I have about 5 rows with branches and leaves that look like they must have been planted really close to Chernobyl and then about 30 perfect rows after that. That's what you get for watching 'Bones' and knitting at the same time!
