|Mindy's interview also suggested that no animal had ever
escaped from the zoo of Les Sables. At this point, Francis Rengers
offered an objection, saying that when he was jogging in the wooded area
around the zoo the other day he came across a monkey or some such
creature. We more experienced with the fauna of the region informed him that he had probably
sited the legendary Vendée Ape, a creature whose existence is contested
by biologists but affirmed by many a lone traveler in the wilds of
western France. We also quietly suggested that Francis keep his
discovery to himself. Those who insist too vehemently on these
topics have been known themselves to end up in specially padded cages of
a sort few wild apes would envy. . . ;)
For our faithful followers, I should note that Sunday were will all be off for a two-day trip up the Loire Valley. I expect to be off line again during that time, but I look forward to have excited reports by Tuesday, June 26. Until then, we wish you happy trails.
