Aren't they familiar expressions - seen on mothers and their babies all the time!

Meggie I have been reading and thought I had commented on some of this week's posts but maybe not. Such is my addled brain!

Catalyst stole my comment. Even Gorillas are capable of tenderness sometimes.

Sweet Baby! I'm a great fan of Koko the gorilla who can communicate in sign language. They are a lot smarter than people give them credit for!

Your post showing your Great Uncle's medals was really interesting and sad. I thought the blood penny was a rather sad thing too, and it brought the phrase blood money to mind although it's obviously much larger than a coin..

How precious and from what I hear the gorilla is rapidly becoming extinct so he is a welcome sign.

Oh Meggie, I've had such an enjoyable time catching up on several days worth of posts finally. That little SG is just adorable -- you must go crazy when you can't be with him LOL. I loved the pizza story -- too cute!

Mothers and children are all beautiful. I'm smiling because no one commented on how "human" they look... ; ) Not that human mothers and babes aren't perfectly sweet... just that beautiful motherhood isn't the sole property of humans. A precious moment, and I'm glad I got to have a look.

Lovely photo Meggie!

I'm constantly amazed at the wisdom of the ages that seems to emanate from the eyes of gorillas and orangutans. We could learn much from them, I think.

I like gorillas a lot, and was glad to see this picture. I think that they're generally good creatures, much nicer than chimpanzees and many human beings. They don't go in for waterboarding their fellow primates, for example.

I forget which zoo it was at or how long ago, but there was a situation where a toddler fell into the gorilla area. The female gorillas picked him up, tried to comfort him and kept him safe until zoo keepers arrived.

Of course, there have also been notorious instances of male gorillas getting loose and rampaging around, but ... well, they're male. Also, one of the cases was in Texas. That gorilla was probably a member of the NRA or something, pissed off because he didn't have a gun in his enclosure.
