Flibble’s full name was Professor Brigarear Admiral General Alistair Gordon Leftbridge “Knobs-On” Flibble P’toink-P’toink PhD, Esq., III. A.K.A. “Flibble-Dibble” A.K.A. “Phillip Q. Winklebacon.” Yeah. That’s how much trouble he could get into. Today would have been Flibble’s seventh birthday. Sadly, he passed away last September after a long, adventurous life.

Love you every day!” -Sarah R.

[Pause to work that one out.]
“Photos taken by me in Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. I regret not attempting a Selfie with a Hyrax, but they were not as camera-friendly as those Quokkas seem to be.”
