Good one PF. I think we are the "animal petting zoo" kind.

I'm trying to decide whether to shower now and risk the workmen arriving in the middle of that, or waiting until after they have been and gone.

I'm also hiccuping and it is making me mental.

Oh come on. Make their day. Take that shower and give the workers a thrill of their lifetime.

Do you know how to "snap" your diaphragm up and down? That usually takes care of hiccoughs for me.

I don't want to scare them! That storm door is becoming more necessary by the minute around here!

Yep. That was one of my regular singing warm ups for years. Didn't work. Neither did downward dog which is my other "go to". I suspect the laughter from Andy's BOO is what finally worked! Incidentally, I grinned when I saw you wrote hiccoughs. I'd actually originally written that, and changed it. Love it!

Good luck with the eye exam!

Take some hand work to stay busy while you wait!

We have Wildlife Parks like that here too, where you can drive around and see the larger animals in their enclosures or walk around...but obviously view them from a distance standing on a raised platform etc

They have all the larger animals, that no, you would not want to pat or hand feed

Great idea. I never go to an appointment without something to work on. Everytime I go to see my vascular doctor, she always asks me, "What are you working on now?" Even the folks in the waiting room stop and look to see what I am doing. Right now it is embroidery. Last winter it was crocheting. Who know what the next project will be.

This is one I did a couple of years ago for friends.
