I had anticipated with great glee going on a safari Saturday and hunting elusive creatures and capturing them photographically. The weather forecasts have been indicating that temperatures will rise gradually throughout the week and that the weather would be sufficiently warm on Saturday that creatures would find it an attractive notion to leave their nesting places and explore their environs. Yikes! Today's forecast shows temperatures of 61° today, 63° tomorrow, 64° Friday, and 49° on Saturday! Surely, there will be no creatures about on that day. Perhaps the cats—Zeus and Thor—shall pose for me.
