The Wild Animal Show at Shaw (Feb 2001) was a great
time--the man who came in to do the show donated his time and
displayed his animals to the Land Lab families--and the Land Lab
families donated their time and attention to him!
One of the "fundraising" parts (as well as an exciting
highlight) was the opportunity to get your picture taken with his
snake! When Mrs Simmons emailed me to ask if I'd help with the camera
work, little did I know what I was getting into. It turned out to be
a full-blown event--and the picture taking and printing turned out to
be quite a bit more than I had anticipated. We had more computer
problems than I ever might have predicted. But, the
kids (and the adults) loved their pictures with the snake, and it was
funny to watch some of the faces as they got up their nerve to hold
the people arrived, we worked hard to set up the machines!

taken with the snake. Jennica told me later that it was
very heavy (but I'm the one who almost dropped it!)
opted for the shark's jaw!
"Wanna do lunch?"
definitely had to hold that snake!
