Malika, Zuri, Amira and Doc, the lion cubs born in January at Caldwell Zoo.


The cubs’ mother, Njeri, came to Tyler from the Milwaukee Zoo and was introduced to the cubs’ father, Ayotunde, who came from Tucson. It’s unusual for a lioness to give birth to more than three cubs. When Njeri began her labor, she was monitored by cameras and night vision. She gave birth to five cubs, but accidentally suffocated one of them.

Effort, and
Trying your best
Each hour of the day,
Making new friends,
Being good as you can
Exciting discoveries,
Reading books with a friend."

If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers. 
~Edgar W. Howe


September is the ninth month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar and one of four Gregorian months with 30 days. In Latin, septem means "seven" and septimus means "seventh"; September was in fact the seventh month of the Roman calendar until 153 BC.

September's birthstone is the sapphire. The meaning is clear thinking.

The birth flowers for September are:


morning glory





Songs & Quotes

"Have a good time, but remember,
There is dander in the summer moon above.
Will I see you in September
Or loose you to a summer love."

-   S. Wayne and S. Edwards, 1959 song lyrics

"September morn
Do you remember how we danced that night away
Two lovers playing scenes from some romantic play
September morning still can make me feel this way."

-   Neil Diamond and Gilbert Becaude


"Spring flowers are long since gone.  Summer's bloom hangs limp on every terrace.  The gardener's feet drag a bit on the dusty path and the hinge in his back is full of creaks."
-  Louise Seymour Jones

"For man, autumn is a time of harvest, of gathering together.  For nature, it is a time of sowing, of scattering abroad."
-  Edwin Way Teale

9thTeddy Bear Day – Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear. Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair. Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn't very fuzzy, wuz he?

A man meets a gorgeous woman in a bar. They talk, they connect, they end up leaving together.

They get back to her place, and as she shows him around her apartment, he notices that her bedroom is completely packed with teddy bears. Hundreds of small bears on a shelf all the way along the floor, medium sized ones on a shelf a little higher and huge bears on the top shelf along the wall.

The man is kind of surprised that this woman would have a collection of teddy bears, especially one that's so extensive, but he decides not to mention this to her.

After a night of passion, as they are lying together in the afterglow, the man rolls over and asks, smiling, "Well, how was it?".

She replied, "You may select any prize from the bottom shelf."

19th -  Talk like a pirate day  And a fine idea it is, too. A world full of people walking around and saying things like “Arrrrrrrrr!” and “Avast, ye ill-bred offspring of a sea hag and a kipper” would certainly be an interesting state of affairs, and, more to the point, we’d all be standing around drinking rum.
Ray Isle, Food & Wine's executive wine editor

What does a gourmet pirate add to his dinner? ... BARRRRRRRRRRBIE!
Where do pirates keep their cookies?....... in a jarrrr!!!!

The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August, and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty who has seen one season too many. 
~Oliver Wendell Holmes


Leaf 'Em Laughing:

First day of fall, and how to cope with a yard full of fallen leaves.

* - Rake:  Give a man a leaf rake and watch him turn a few little problems into a heap of trouble.

* - Blow:  A leaf blower is for the guy who is too impatient to wait for a breeze to scatter things in his neighbor's direction.

* - Bag:  A bag of leaves is like a sweeper full of carpet lint -- satisfying up to the point where you realize it's never the last bag.
