My only wrinkle was this. I don't remember if I have shared my woes about both knees with you. After working on furniture floors and wearing high heels for well over 30 years, there is not a speck of cartilage in either of my knees. Before agreeing to go on this trip I checked out the Zoo online and saw there was a railroad circling the entire zoo. My thought was that if my knees grew painful and the rest of me weary I could ride the train to meet the rest of the family any place they might head.
(Which I am in no big hurry to do.)
Note: Our other son Joel and his wife Julie were not available to go with us this time as they have their home being built on to and couldn't get away just now.
