Vinny, The Wandering Wombat

This…is Vinny. According to Yahoo News/Australia, he wandered off (a walkabout?) from Goldfields Wildlife Rehabilitators in Coolgardie Western Australia, on Friday the 9th. But he’s back after a two-day trek. Quoting Yahoo, “As we speak he’s lying on his back, sound asleep on the floor enjoying the breeze,” Rowena Walker said. “He came home and just drank and ate for an hour … and then he went straight to bed and has been sleeping ever since.”

Vinny the wombat appears pleased to be back home. Picture: Rowena Walker

Someone Knitted Crocheted Little Santa Suits?

kamakura_knitted_birds_0945So, on this street, there are some sidewalk barriers or guardrails or..whatever. And they make little birds to go on top of them. Nice little whimsical touch, right? Then someone decides to MAKE LITTLE SANTA CLAUS SUITS FOR ‘EM. Yes, it’s Japan. Again.

“One of my other favorite blogs has posted some amazing cuteness which you just have to see,” says Cuteporter pk1154.

“Not only do the Japanese make barricades that come with little sculptured birds, but someone was thoughtful enough to make them wee knit caps and cloaks for winter!”

“Hey Honey? Have You Seen Bootsy?”

Boosty 1“No, and I’ve been looking all over for him. I told him we had to go to the V-E-T. Boots can’t spell……can he?”




“Hello, you posted some photos of Missy-Moo and her other sheepie pals, i wondered if one of her other friends is cute enough to be featured? This is Bootsy, nearly a year old, he loves trees and belly rubs, he’ll flop over in front of you and demand them.”

So This Koala Drops In…

….and decides he/she WANTS TO CUDDLE. What’re ya gonna do…….say NO?

“This koala climbed down a tree to say hello! It was taken right outside our home here in Greenhill which is in the The Adelaide Hills, South Australia. I was so lucky he let me hold his paw, their paws are SO soft and warm and their fur is soft as cotton wool! I gave him water as it was a hot day, and he lapped it up like a dog and then wanted to climb up me for a cuddle! He eventually climbed back up the tree, occasionally coming down for a drink! There are lots of koalas in our trees, it’s summer here and they just laze about in the branches making crazy noises. It’s not unusual to see one walking along the road, or cruising about in and around our homes and back yards.” -Alicia X.

(P.S. “Thank goodness we weren’t affected by the recent fires, we were close and had begun our fire action plan, but did not need to evacuated llike some of our friends who were closer to the fire. But we are in a very fire prone area.”)

Flashback Friday: Warsaw, 1912

EPSON scanner imageGoin’ back over a century in this week’s edition of Flashback Friday! Maria D. writes: “Hi guys, I have the attached photos in my family album. They were taken around year 1912 in Warsaw. The (above) boy is my granddad, Jerzy Szymanderski. The serious man (below) is his father, Adam Szymanderski. The dog is a pointer and his name is either Mars or Dunaj. I hope you may find this interesting…many thanks.”

“The Perfect Little Cinnamon Bun”

Frankie bun2That name works for us! Tell us about this photo, Molly M. “Here’s Frankie. He always likes to find the softest place available. In this case, it was a round pillow, so he made himself perfectly round to fit on it. He is a perfect little cinnamon bun!”

That’s a wrap for C.O. tonight- back tomorrow with great stuff like Flashback Friday..TGIF..Vinny The Wandering Wombat…and…KOALAS!!!

P.S. And maybe even Stoats. Totally possible. Wouldn’t bet against it.

Hey Jane, You Wanna Go Outside Or Somethin’?

We’ll mark that down as a “Yes, please.”

How To Dry Your BUB

1.) Place your BUB firmly in the crook of your arm.

2.) Turn on hair dryer.

3.) Point hair dryer at your BUB, continue until complete. As the video accurately states, “A dry BUB is better than a cold, wet BUB.”
