#EnterpriseMuseum – #CentralFloridaWildlife – #HugeFun!

Off to visit with the good folks at Enterprise Museum today, to chat about two  of the more unusual critters which live here in Central Florida: opossums and armadillos. It’s been months since I was feeling well enough to give one of these presentations, and I’m looking forward to this one more than I can say! Especially since I’ll be talking about two animals which are so very interesting, yet so misunderstood.

If you happen to be in the area, come on by and see exactly what I mean for yourself! The little restored 1930s schoolhouse is worth the trip all by itself!

See you later, folks! Have a great Saturn’s Day!!

    • We have a fabulous assortment of wildlife around here, for sure, Michael! And I think armadillos are cute, too, though they didn’t start out being part of Florida wildlife. (Nor Texas wildlife, either). They migrated northward out of central and south America. And if you think the 9-banded ones we have here now are cute, wait until I share a photo of the pink fairy armadillos. They are so odd-looking!

      Hope you have a nice weekend, too! 😀 ❤

    • I would so love to HAVE you there, Darlene! I often think how much fun it would be to see some of my blog friends’ smiling faces as I share a bit about Florida wildlife. (I do try to make learning about our wildlife FUN, as well as informative.) I’m feeling a bit rusty this morning, as it’s been so many months since my last talk. (I normally do 24 a year, one at each of my two venues every month). BUT, I’m telling myself it’s like riding a bike. As soon as I start talking (pedaling), it will all come back to me, and I won’t fall over! 😂😂😂

    • Thanks, Diana. I’m pretty excited to be getting back to it, though I think I’ll stick with one program a month for a while, instead of my usual two, so I don’t overdo things right off the bat. Plus, it’ll give me more time to create a few new programs, too. I’ll be leaving here in an hour or so, and I can’t wait!! 😀 ❤

    • Thanks, Nancy! If I get to spend some time with smiling faces, sharing the wildlife I love so much, I’ll consider it a HUGE win! It’s wonderful to be getting out and about again! And this program is a lot of fun, as both of these animals have some VERY interesting and strange “features” that most people have never heard of. Looking forward to expressions of open-mouthed surprise from a few in the audience. 😀 ❤

    • Thanks so much, John! Today went great, and I am feeling better and better about getting back to these each month. Nothing more uplifting than sharing things with others and having a good time along with them, while doing so! Feeling pretty lucky tonight! 😀 ❤

    • I agree on both counts, Jeanne, and a few folks were very surprised at some of what they learned today. It was a lot of fun, and I’m so happy it looks like I can handle at least one a month, perhaps increasing to my old schedule of 2 venues each month. We’ll see how I do. I’m pretty happy tonight, though plenty tired now, too. 😀 ❤

  1. I’d be at your presentation if I lived anywhere within driving distance. You are amazing. I hope you have fun and are invigorated by the folks in attendance. BTW, when I lived in Branson, MO, I saw armadillos regularly. They are such funny creatures. I’ve only seen a possum once or twice. I hope someone takes pictures and you’re able to share them. Sending much encouragement and extra hugs… 😊❤️😊

    • Aww, thanks so much, Gwen! You are so sweet!! And it would be fantastic to see your smiling face in the audience someday.

      Armadillos are very interesting, and both they and opossums have some extremely unusual things about them that triggered a lot of jaw dropping in today’s audience when I explained. I love when that happens! 😀 Plus the audience asked great questions (which I always encourage) and laughed in all the right places, too! (I’m a firm believer that these types of talks should be fun as well as informative.)

      And you know, I totally forgot to take pictures today, OF the group and WITH the group. I’d told myself I was going to have someone do that, and then got so involved sharing fun and amazing facts, I forgot. *sigh* NEXT time, I’m going to be sure there are pictures to pass along afterward!

      In the meantime, I’m officially worn out now and heading to bed with my Kindle. Tired but happy!! My life definitely took another turn for the positive today! 😀 ❤

    • Thanks, Kass! If you are ever down in this area, stop by. It would be so much fun to meet you in person! I’ll be giving a heads up here on the blog and on FB to my upcoming talks, so you’ll know what’s going on that might be of interest to you. In the meantime, have a great week!! 😀 ❤
