#Photography for the Beautiful 7/21

Zhengzhou, China

Rasputin was the squirrel monkey known to my family and this was a long time ago as in nearly forty years ago.  I don't believe anyone in the family supports importation of exotic animals today.  He was one charming little rascal, tho.

My favorite was he could unlatch the door to his cage so he could run out onto the dinner table to inspect the food we were eating.  If he saw anything he liked such as a green pea, he would grab it and then hold it in both hands to roll it around to inspect it.  He might eat it or just drop it to get another one but it was always funny to watch ... so long as it was someone else's plate.

Badgers actually live in setts and that refers to a family group rather than a structure.  Even so, this looks like a great place for a really large badger.  It's cool for kids since adults won't fit.

Experience badger love for yourself.  (  New light on the secret life of badgers)

It reminds me of "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" by Georges Seurat.

They would probably laugh at me if I tell them it is hot in Texas.

Tip:  it's really hot in Texas.

There's something beautiful about golf although the Rockhouse has no idea what it could possibly be.
