It is day 135 for me staying home during COVID19. I had a knee replacement on June 30. It seemed like a good time to do it since I needed it and was staying home anyway. I salute our dedicated zookeepers as we just celebrated National Zookeeper’s week. Zookeeper’s faces may change from year to year but the hard work, resourcefulness and commitment remain the same. I salute you all and especially the staff at my home base, the Central Park Zoo. You allow me to take your photos while you perform your tasks with good humor and I appreciate that. Hope to see you all soon. Stay Safe please and wear a mask.

The zookeepers will be happy….I hope people don’t realize this is a repeat….the lack of masks might be a clue to some >

What wonderful faces. Those folks make it happen.

Have a fast recovery with the knee, the chorus line has a place for a high kicker like you.

I love our Zoo Keepers. They work sooo hard and do so much for our beloved animals. From diet, to habitat improvement to behavioral enrichment, they improve life every day for our furry, feathered and scaly pals. Love these pix Judy.

Welcome back Judy – hope your surgery did you much good! Nice fun fabulous tribute to zoo’s essential workers! And lastly – did you hear about the panda who once hid his food in order to get more. The zookeepers were bamboozeled!!
