z is for zany

Nobody in life gets exactly what they thought they were going to get, but if you work really hard and you're kind, amazing things will happen.
Conan O'Brien (b. 18 april 1963) comedian

I started to wonder if I was ever going to get to the end of the alphabet - with the exception of x, I don't think there is a more difficult letter than z!

here's zany ray* from townsville, queenland sporting a zoo york shirt - ray was visiting cleveland this weekend with his uncle, aunt, and cousin who are life-long friends of f and I. before cleveland the family stopped in new york - or rather zoo york.

gotta zip along....lots to do today!

*ray had us in stitches with some stand up routines he had perfected - I wouldn't be surprised if in ten years time we'll be seeing ray having his own late night comedy show!

Great quote.....thanks to you and to Conan.

And congrats on getting through the whole alphabet.

As for the letter "Z".......if you were as old dirt like me you could have done a whole blog on "Zoot Suit"
