  Happy Holidays, from my manatee to yours! Or to you, I guess. Hardly any of you have your own manatees. Thank you for hanging out with me on the internet in 2013 and being a fun group of people to chat with and type to. Here’s to 2014: May your bearings roll true, and […]

Sorry to be a bummer again, but this week there was an NPR story about how manatees aren’t the only animals dying in Florida’s Indian River Lagoon – pelicans and dolphins are dying too. The problem is that there aren’t very many manatees to begin with. Here’s a cute manatee to make you feel better. […]

Remember when we decided to “adopt” Rosie the Manatee? Well, the paperwork has gone through. Yes, I’m sure Jimmy Buffet approves of your parenting. Thank you to everyone who’s bought a Mana-tee from Wicked Skatewear. Christmas is coming, you know. In three months. But still. It’s been a lousy year for manatees, with a huge […]

You know Manatee loves to party – so he was more than happy to hang out with Baby Sour and I this weekend as we cheered on Rose City at WFTDA Playoffs. (Baby Sour just cheered. He didn’t watch. He’s just a baby.) Manatee’s favorite player is obviously Scylla Devourer. Because he loves the sea. […]

Continuing with our frequent Manatee Adventures in Nature series, we took an afternoon to hang out at and near Lake Vancouver in Washington. Mostly, we walked around, explored the park (not busy at all for a Saturday afternoon that started out sunny), and spent some time doing some much-needed nothing. Manatee likes hanging out with […]

Manatees, like any other animal, enjoy simple summer activities like hanging out at the river and skipping rocks.     Well, that’s a good one, Manatee. Looks nice and flat. But how are you gonna huck it? Those flippers aren’t made for skipping.     This approach didn’t give quite the desired effect, either. The […]

As you might know, I’m super pregnant. Like, nine months pregnant. Under the “things they never tell you” file, can we just clarify that humans normally gestate their babies for nine and a half months? Why do we round down? Manatee, being a parent himself, has been very supportive and can’t wait to meet the […]

Manatee Monday: Meet Rosie!

Thanks to roller man-a-tee shirt sales*, we were able to adopt Rosie the Manatee. Rosie has been living in captivity since 1968, and is one of the permanent manatees at Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park. She hasn’t been released due to an equilibrium issue that causes her to swim in circles. We’ll have regular updates […]

Hey guys! We’ve sold enough t-shirts since my last donation to the Save the Manatee Club to adopt a manatee! Who would you like to adopt, blog readers? The following four are living in, or sometimes live in, Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, which I visited last November. One of these ladies we adopt could […]
