Not So Recently Read
While I have a moment, I thought I should catch up on the sidebar book. We Bought a Zoo is a great story. It had a bit of everything from family life, tragedy, humor, conservationism, education, and strategic planning. The Dartmoor Zoological Park is located in southwestern England. If you have a chance, go have a visit for me, dickiebo and B. (Yes, I realize it is a bit of a haul around to get there.) Anyway, the only down side I found was that it left me wanting to know more. And more was not something the website provided. I wanted more family stories. After all, the title says WE. While indeed it was a family purchase and project, I didn't feel that I really met them all. I didn't get to know them as well as I wanted. Good book, nonetheless.
