At the Zoo

Dear Friends,

We're so glad you came to visit today~Would you like to join us for a trip to the zoo?

A.A. Milne -

"At the Zoo"

There are lions and roaring tigers,
and enormous camels and things,
There are biffalo-buffalo-bisons,
and a great big bear with wings.
There's a sort of a tiny potamus,
and a tiny nosserus too -
But I gave buns to the elephant
when I went down to the Zoo!

There are badgers and bidgers and bodgers,
and a Super-in-tendent's House,
There are masses of goats, and a Polar,
and different kinds of mouse,
And I think there's a sort of a something
which is called a wallaboo -
But I gave buns to the elephant
when I went down to the Zoo!

(Apparently peacocks are zoo employees!)

If you try to talk to the bison,
he never quite understands;
You can't shake hands with a mingo -
he doesn't like shaking hands.
And lions and roaring tigers
hate saying, "How do you do?" -
But I give buns to the elephant
when I go down to the Zoo!

  3. How sweet! Looks like they had so much fun :D

  4. It looks like you had a lovely day! I loved the photos of your son following the peacock, and the photo of your girls with their pretty hats and dresses! Many blessings to you Marqueta : )

  5. What wonderfully memorable days you spend with your 'brood' Marqueta. They are such delightful children. I think the 'follow that peacock' sequence is hilarious.


Thank you for coming to visit — I look forward to hearing from you!
