I went to our local Zoo today to do some work and while I was there I took a few pictures of some of the residents (click on the image to enlarge). I was impressed with the brown bear who was standing up playing with a tyre hanging from a tree. He was having lots of fun but I resisted the urge to join him! Sometimes, more than one is a crowd.
While I was there I took a special picture for fellow blogger Pearl from Pearl, why you little...blog. Pearl made the comment on Des's last post that she "had a hard time believing that there ARE kangaroos. Silly animals! I've never seen one live; and the thought of them bounding across an open plain is just confounding."
You see, it's like this Pearl. The Kangaroos that you see in your Zoos may just be the ordinary kind of guys that we allow to emigrate to the USA. They 'bound' and don't do much else. The guys that we have here are a lot more talented. That's why I thought I would take this picture of Big Boy Booza who was kicking back at the Zoo today. He was propped up at the bar drinking Fosters for the whole three hours I was there. Watching football with his mates. He was a little wobbly on his legs afterwards ....but thank goodness he was close to home. So now what do you say?
From The Mind of A Mom, now can you see why we have to tie our kangaroos down, sport.
And Barbara (Barbara Blundell's Blog), I have to confess that when I was walking around the Zoo I thought of you too. Actually I felt guilty being there taking pictures of caged animals because I know that I, including your other loyal readers, want to free all these animals when we get to rule the world. One day.
So, making sure I was not letting the team down, because I did feel overwhelmed by those bears, tigers and giraffes, I came home via the Restaurant that serves the live lobster. I summoned up some courage and I placed this sign at the entrance door. I hope you will be proud of my efforts......ummmm, maybe you might get a few extra visitors to your blog....by the name of Constable something or other.... hope you don't mind..
Happy Sunday everyone and I can't close the comments today because I want to know what you think of the hunky Kangaroos we have here. Especially you Pearl.
