224934 Visitors and Counting

Okay, so as of late I have not been blogging nearly as much as I would have liked.  In fact, it seems that it takes a lot of effort to come up with grammatically correct posts.  No wonder people “tweet” so much.  LOL.  In fact, my last blog post was so long ago, I am sure some NY Times Best Sellers have published a book or two in the interim.  🙂


The number of people I have interacted with during my various volunteer activities.


  • 167664 Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum
  • 45132 Smithsonian National Zoological Park
  • 4918 Washington Area Bicyclist Association
  • 7150 National Park Service, etc.


The number of tours I have given at the Smithsonian National Zoological Park


The number of hours spent volunteering.  There are times when my volunteering does not involve interacting with visitors.  For example, this past December, I got to be Panda Claws at the Smithsonian National Zoo.

Will mark the 6th year of my volunteering in DC with the Smithsonian.  I had originally thought it would take 35 years to make 1oooooo and it looks like it should take me 18 more years.  Nothing like having a long term goal 🙂


Being Panda Claws was really fun and I thought I would include some photos.  My friend Keith came to take photos of me and bought a panda hat to get into the spirit 🙂
