Looney L's

I am being lazy route this week and just making a list of L words. If I was really naughty I'd recycle my Elevator of DOOM post and retitle it Lift of DOOM since elevators are called lifts here. However, I don't want a lashing from the teacher for cheating!

I love lion monkeys. I'm pretty sure they'd try to eat my face off if I were to somehow kidnap one from the zoo, but I love them anyways.

Lion Monkeys
This is the mating pair at Hogle Zoo in Utah. There are wee babies crawling on these two, but taking pictures through glass is crappy and you can't see them very well.

The Dutch word for spring is Lente. It's also called voorjaar, but that messes up my L groove so we're not going to discuss that. In Eindhoven there are landing strips of grass inbetween a lot of the roads. One of the first signs of lente is the massive amount of daffodils that start shooting up!

Next I shall show you a very old picture of my livingroom with it's shiny laminate floors. I ought to update some of these pictures, we've made some mad wild changes around here! Okay, maybe not MAD WILD changes, but there are some differences.

What L post would be complete without Las Vegas?

Welcome to Vegas!

Lastly, a photo of my loyal lovable husband who is logging a geocache on the island of Texel.

I kept trying to work the word lackadaisical into this post because it's such a great word but gosh darnit I am enthusiastic about EVERYTHING and I couldn't make it fit anywhere but as a note down here as to why I couldn't make it work. So I guess I sorta succeeded? Maybe? Ehh....

Geocaching, huh? When we got our first GPS, we did that. Found a park in central Kansas City with our kids and grandkid, zeroed in on the spot (which of course is hidden in the 'sticks') and lo and behold! First thing we found was lovers in a compromising situation! What quite a Geocache find!

Love the flowers.
