This is just a fun little post. After we left the Asian garden we came across a circle of creatures and Richard joined the ring. While all the animals are joined together in a circle, for photograph purposes I took the liberty of separating them so that I did not see random arms. My removal of the other limbs may not be perfect, but I loved showing each one alone where I could.
Sometimes you just have to have a little bit of fun. Life has been so stressful these past months. I loved that he was able to just relax enough to be silly. This is what life is all about. Enjoying the moments, while we still have them.
Being African we really related to the Giraffe and Elephant. They are like home away from home.
Also another hot country when we get down to it. Summers can be brutal, just like Florida. So just a reminder, the sun in Florida is super strong. Make sure to put on your sunscreen. Wear sunglasses and use a hat to protect your face. If you have any form of skin cancer or like Richard, melanoma, then make sure you are wearing UV protective clothing when you are out in the sun. Australia, Florida, California are listed as the top 3 places for melanoma. I am going to add South Africa to that listed because where we grew up the climate is exactly the same. Make sure that you are checking your body for moles that look different., or a mole that may worry you. Melanoma, we are told can spill over and travel from a mole site to another organ and go dormant for years. In Richard’s case it was 34 years before the melanoma made itself evident again. Take Care of yourselves. Prevention is better than trying to cure Stage 4 cancer.
