Saturday morning started with a rehoming. You will no doubt see more about that in my next rehoming blog. I always cry when baboons leave so you can see I am looking sad. He is going to a great home though where he will have a wonderful life, joining another rehomed baboon. This one is a cousin of mine and he looks like my brother Roko!
Now we know why our manperson wanted the extendable ladder. Its to check the skylight to make sure its not leaking. It needs checking regularly. Jack couldn't resist trying out the ladder.
Suddenly he realised how high up he was. He came down quickly and carefully.
In the afternoon we all listened to the FA cup third round games on the radio. Our team got through but they gave us a few nasty moments. Sadly Hoppo seems to be hidden behind Tashi and Jack seems to be hidden behind Oregon, you can just see his sleeve. He is a bit camera shy but Hoppo isn't usually. Washington is only showing his hat and Yaya is hiding. It hard to take a picture of 33 excitable baboons and get them all in. I can't see Denis either.
On Sunday morning we started our breakfast at home with blueberries and raspberries with yogurt. Very nice and healthy!!
As if that wasn't enough berries we went to Olivos for breakfast blackcurrant pancakes! With cream!! Manperson had maple syrup with his instead of cream. They were completely yummy!!
We got the boys who were camera shy yesterday to have their photo taken. Hoppo and Jack at the back and Washington and Denis at the front. You can see they were reluctant, but there was no need to be they are all good looking boys!!
In the afternoon it was raining so we dozed and watched more FA cup football. Manperson was cooking a dish with this vegetable. Harry and Little Tony found it and wondered what it was. I explained it was a butternut squash.
