Come to Bristol at your own risk! There are gorillas everywhere.
Sixty gorillas were painted, decorated and placed in strategic locations all over the city of Bristol.
They will be auctioned later and the money will be used to help gorillas in the wild.
This is Irene, who has been named after The Bristol Rovers. Their theme is the song, *Irene Goodnight.*
This is a smaller model that I came across while shopping. I think it is a pretty design.
It is quite a popular pastime for children and adults alike to travel the city looking for the different designs.
If you'd like to see all of them, then you can have a look here.
One of the gorillas was vandalised recently and unfortunately he was burnt beyond recognition. It was the one with the British flag.
A horrible thing to do and an act that really upset many people in our city and most children are very upset about it. My own grandchildren like to go round the city and have their photos taken whenever they see one a new one.
Concerning my last post...... I have now been to the radiology department to be measured up for the treatment that will start on the 11th August. I have a little tattooed dot on my back and have had all my details put in a scanner in order to eventually fire the radiation into the right places. This apparently takes time and that is why I have to wait another two weeks for it to be processed.
I asked the tattooist if she could put a little animal on my back instead of the dot. It didn't get me very far.
I have seen someone about my pain and am now slotted into a Pain Clinic. It might take a while to find the exact thing to help me while I wait. However all these things have side affects some of which are nasty.
I dare say I will find the right combination before too long. I will let you know.
