I hope that you are having a fruitful Advent season, and I wish my fellow old calendar travellers a blessed feast of the Theotokos’ Conception today.
It is also Colo’s fifty-eighth birthday! Read about the celebration on the Columbus Zoo site. Colo was the first gorilla born in captivity, and she is moreover the oldest gorilla in the world. I was able to see her back in September when I visited the Columbus Zoo with family. Many years, Colo!
