Gophers Before Christmas 2007
Saturday 22 December 2007

One chilly evening on December 22, we had our sixth annual winter outing to the Lights Before Christmas at the Toledo Zoo. Set back a bit by poor weather on the first attempt a week before, we only managed to gather seven people this time around. Still, we had a good time and sought out dinner at IHOP afterwards.

Attendees: Josh Gulch, Charles Meyer, Dan Norton, James Malcolm, Laura Mayfield, Felicity Powers, and Scott Cook.


Nothing phases Dan Parking was an absolute, horrible nightmare. Dan remained in high spirits.

I like to think that he's doing both -- multitasking! Either Charles is craning his neck trying to find a parking space or he's kissing Dan's hat.

There are far worse things than death, Lieutenant Josh fears that they will die in this parking lot.

Even when you're taking a shower, there's a Malcolm There are Malcolms everywhere. Every time you turn around.

It's all you deserve, you rat I think I took like fifty pictures of people walking on this bridge. I will only post one of them.

You can't see the pain and suffering if you move fast enough Felicity bounds along, oblivious of the madness in the world around her.

And you still have a dirty tongue Philippe is still six years old.

And he's still not gonna get one Scott's been waiting all night for a high five.

God, how artsy is that The world consumes Laura as she strives to photograph it all.

That would explain all the white stuff on the ground Don't tell anyone but the trees may actually be millions of tiny, glowing seagulls.

And they haven't killed each other ... yet This photo basically sums up the decade that Josh and Felicity have been friends.

Photo Credit Josh Gulch
'Cause he's a very special boy Philippe has hugs for everyone.

Good job! THERE'S CHARLES! THERE'S CHARLES! HE'S RIGHT THERE!

Usually it's the other way around, if you know what I mean This is a very rare astronomical event: a partial eclipse of James by his neighbor, Dan.
