It’s Favorite Friday so I’ve put together a bunch of my favorite posts and articles from the week.

Gorilla Brothers, Alf and Kesho, as They’re Reunited After Three Years Apart from Huffington Post

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/16/kesho-and-alf-gorilla-brothers-reunite-photos-pictures_n_1791836.html

I included this article in my Friday Favorites because it illustrates for me how spot on Katherine Applegate was in her depiction of Ivan, the gorilla, in The One and Only Ivan.  If you haven’t read The One and Only Ivan, I highly suggest you do.  Here’s a link to the website http://theoneandonlyivan.com.

Enjoy the weekend!
