Search for the Bug Lady Part 3

A familiar face...

Welcome back to our story friends.  We left our story with brave little Sara getting some much needed correct directions from Mr. Giraffe to help with our search for the celebrated Bug Lady.  So we continued our adventure armed with renewed excitement and anticipation when little Sara asked M and I, "Does the Bug Lady only capture bugs?"

"No, little one, the bug lady is also a world renowned safari guide and has seen and photographed all of Africa's most amazing and dangerous critters," I answered the wide eyed little girl.

Then Sara asked, "Why do they call her the Bug Lady then?"

"That's a great question Sara," I said, "we shall definitely ask her this when we find her!"

This is when we meet our old friend Mr. Meerkat.




"Hello Mr. Meerkat" M said with an evil hungry tone in her voice.  It had been some time since our last meal.

"I bet they are not bad with a little BBQ sauce," I said. 

"So, did you find her? LOL LOL LOL" ask they sly little Meerkat.

Some time later...

"You were right daddy" Sara said licking her lips, "they are tasty!"

Just kidding people... they are much to quick!

Actually we had a nice meal in a nice village.  We asked about any Bug Lady sightings and were about to get some key information when a there was quite a panic!  A man come riding his bicycle into the village and jumped off and climbed straight up a tree!





"Excuse me sir" I asked looking up, "what is all the fuss?"

He directed our attention with a point of his crooked finger to our left.




So we mounted our Camels and had to leave the tiny village.  Oh my, we were so close to getting some good Bug Lady information too.  Oh well, that's the breaks in Africa.  We continued our journey to the south, in search of the Bug Lady. 

I hope you enjoyed our African adventure for today.  Sara, M, and I will be back soon with more exciting stories and photo's soon!

Search for the Bug Lady Part 2

The Meerkat told you what?...

Two days later after meeting and talking with Mr. Meerkat our feet were exhausted from all that walking.  M and little Sara were starting to complain a little bit and it was up to me to now find some better transportation for the vast African landscape.  As a charter member of the Institute of Better Science, I knew just what to do.  Dromedary Camels are a well known means of transportation in hot desert climates.  So off we went to the local Dromedary Camel Rental dealership much to the delight of M and little Sara.




So we were off again in search of the famous Bug Lady!  As we rode I told little Sara all about the Bug Lady.  She listened with wonder and amazement.  "Daddy, she really lets the bugs crawl on her while she takes the photo's?", Sara asked from high atop the Camel.  She sure does Sara, truly a fearless and brave woman the Bug Lady is.

Little Sara was the first to spot our next African Critter friend and it was a good thing she did.  "Look daddy!"
She screamed and pointed.  "It's a Giraffe!"

"That's right Sara," I answered, "now walk your Camel over close to that tree and climb up so you can talk to him."  That is just what little Sara did and this was their conversation.




"Hello little girl," said Giraffe.  "Hello Mr. Giraffe!", said Sara, "we are on an adventure to find the Bug Lady, do you know who she is?"  "Of, course I know the Bug Lady!" said Mr. Giraffe.  Sara continued on, "Mr. Meerkat, said we could find her near here, have you seen her?"

"Near here!" laughed Mr. Giraffe, "she is no where near here little one".  "The Bug Lady lives far to the south and though I know her well I haven't seen her in these parts for a long time!"

"You have to be very careful of Meerkats, little one, they are quite the jokesters and will often lead travelers astray with their cunning deception!"

"Oh my", exclaimed Sara, "Thank you for your help and honesty, we will travel south now and we will surely tell the Bug Lady of your kindness and help."

Sara slid down the Heelu tree and told M and I the news.

Meerkats! Discovery should do a special on those crafty troublemakers!  Stay tuned blog friends, there are many encounters and exciting adventures to come as we search Africa for the famous Bug Lady!

Search for the Bug Lady Part 1

The adventure begins...

I have been MIA.  I know this has been tough on everyone, I know this from the overwhelming amount of email that has poured in over the last month.  Ok, it was only one but I can tell I was missed.  Well actually it was not even about my absence at all.  It was from mama and she wanted to know when I was coming to visit, but I digress...

I am sure you're curious about where M and I have been.  Well I have put together several post to tell just that story.  M and I loaded up little Sara and went on a safari to find the world famous Bug Lady from south Africa.   Here is the map we used.  Note how I drew myself a pointer back to Florida so we could find our way back home.






We have known the Bug Lady for some time now through blog land.  M decided it was time for us to up and go on a trip so I suggested we pay her a visit.  Getting to Africa was quite an adventure in itself but I will start the tale at the point we arrived in Africa. The first critter we ran into was a Meerkat.  So we stopped and asked if he knew where the Bug Lady lived.  He said he did and turned his little head to the North and said go that way.  So we did.

 


This is only the beginning of an exciting African adventure filled with many African critters.  So stay tuned and watch as the search for the mysterious Bug Lady continues.
