Derek Trucks Band
Posted: July 18
 
The Derek Trucks Band performed at Grand Targhee tonight. Derek's wife Susan Tedeschi joined the band and took it to another level.

Mary Lacy, a good friend from our college days at Washington University in St. Louis, joined me. Mary has lived in Houston, TX for around 35 years so she  is not accustomed to, shall we say, "cooler temperatures". As this was at night at an elevation of 9,000 feet, we did have some of those cooler temperatures.

At one point, I asked her if she would be alright if I left her and went down near the stage to take some photos. She said yes.

When I returned, she was wrapped up in some blankets that had been loaned to her. She was still quite cold. I suggested she accompany me back to stage front where there was a crowd of humanity generating much heat.

She did so and was quite comfortable. She remarked that she couldn't wait to phone her sons to let them know their mother was "in the mosh pit"!

St. Louis Zoo
Posted: February 06
 
Nice day out so I decided to go to the zoo.

One of my current favorites is the Malayan Sun Bear above. This was the first time I was able to take a photos showing his long tongue. Apparently their diet includes a lot of termites and this long tongue allows him to feast.
