    As soon as I saw this , the words “The Circle of Life” popped into my brain. How can anyone look at this beautiful sleeping creature and not feel kinship and KNOW that we all belong to the same Mother Earth and are part of the same circle of life…

    Got the whole “sawing logs” thing confused with sleeping on logs. :)

  14. Tell me, dear CO’ers, have you ever Kippled?
    “Where billow meets billow, there soft be thy pillow,
    Ah, weary wee flipperling, curl at thy ease!
    The storm shall not wake thee, nor shark overtake thee,
    Asleep in the arms of the slow-swinging seas!
    — Seal Lullaby

  15. Pooped pinniped pup
    Parked on shiny pine pillow;
    Both barks all played out.

  16. I pick this one.
