You Lookin' at ME?

do not under any circumstance tolerate anyone telling you that you have 'ostrich toes' 

or ostrich wings for that matter:  this 'lady' was cooling off and had her wings unfolded.  really not charming.

You really couldn't blame her.  It was HOT.  This warthog had the right idea:

Below, one of 7 lions at the park.  we had a lengthy discussion on why the guy was going INTO the lion enclosure and leaving the gate wide open.  

Mom 1: He's able to go in b/c the lions are not in the enclosure.  (looking to Mom2, who has intimate knowledge of the strange innerworkings/nonworkings of the park)

Esssssssscuse me?  (say the moms to themselves in the park where the cheetah was killed by a wandering snake, where anthrax took the lives of some visiting pachaderms, where there are as many tortoises INSIDE the tortoise enclosure as out,  where we get ant attacks on 9/10 visits and cornered by angry peacocks (why are they always so angry?)  - Where, pray/prey tell ARE the lions).

Finn:  If they are not IN then they are OUT?  
Moms:  No, the guy is doing some work and then he's going to let them OUT.
Finn: He is going to let them out of the enclosure?
Mom1: Yes.  
Mom2: No.
Finn, who is visibly agitated, tho still upside down on the upside down bench (below) tries to decide if he believes either one of us:  Is is feeding time?

How ELSE to you sit on such a bench? and with an audience?

Yes, how do you do that? exactly
what is that animal called? It is
very cute! The boys look ever so comfy and they seem to be wearing some what longer shorts-or are those outgrown long pants? Are the lions out but still in, Mr. FPFJ?
Or are they really, truly OUT? HOPE they don't make a snack out of
