Yesterday, All My Troubles Seemed So...

Johnstone's Crocodile aka a

Actually, there are no troubles that will be reported here. When I thought the word "yesterday", the classic Beatles song naturally followed. I know I'm not alone in this. Around my house we do this with movie quotes, too. A lot.

I went to The Zoo with my SIL, Jen, yesterday where I took the above picture of a Johnston's Crocodile or, as our friends Down Undah refer to them, "a freshie". Just thought I'd share.

FYI, if I haven't commented on your blawg recently, that means I haven't caught up on it, yet. I'm working on it. I don't think I'll go that long without checking again. It takes forever to catch up!

I'm off to Costco. Wish me luck.

(Oooh, which reminds me - another delish dinner idea: grilled "Flap" steak that has been marinated in Mr. Yoshida's Sweet and Savory Original Gourmet, um, sauce. Thank you to our beautiful friends Dave and Alena for introducing us to this.)

Your freshie photo is amazing! The short depth field really makes it an outstanding shot! You go girl! (Oops, is that too many exclamtion points?) LOL

Nicely done, sweetness...

Mama P: Thanks!

Mandy: Thanks! I was pretty happy with it. I took it with a 70-300mm lens. I'm learning through trial and lots of error! (Personally, I'm addicted to exclamation points. I try to limit them, but how else does one convey excitement in a comment? Hmmm?!? heh)

Jude: Thank you. Like I said to Mandy, I'm learning. Digital is good for me, because who knows how much film would have/will be wasted?

Are you going to cook it in the Crock pot?

Great pic! I can hear Steve Irwin's voice in my head, saying "freshie" ;)

You're in San Diego? I have a zoo pass, if you ever want company!

Bo: You my friend are HIlarious. Hee!

DebbieS: RIP, huh? Hey, cool - I do, too. We should plan. :)

I'm going to go out on a limb and say this is "flank" steak you're referring to? Yum. Very cool pic - so slinky!

Actually, it's a little different... more tender. At Costco they have both.
