Buckle Up There, Dusty

6416520-3x2-940x627Dusty The Kangaroo is living the good life in Western Australia- he was adopted by a family there after he lost his mom :( and fits right in with the Stewart family’s assortment of puppehs. Read more about Dusty here, with thanks to Claire M.

Do The Didgeridoo (Concert In The Park)

Wikipedia: “The Didgeridoo (/ˌdɪdʒəriːˈduː/) (also known as a didjeridu) is a wind instrument developed by Indigenous Australians of northern Australia potentially within the last 1,500 years and still in widespread use today both in Australia and around the world. It is sometimes described as a natural wooden trumpet or “drone pipe.” Musicologists classify it as a brass aerophone.”

See what you learn on this site? (Reminds you of this clip.) Now that we’re clear on that- watch this guy- er, Do The Didgeridoo. The cows approve.

“My Hungry Hungry Homies”

If you went all the way to Rott Nest Island off the western coast of Australia in order to pet see Quokkas, do you know what it would be like?

It would be like this. (FYI, this article says petting them is illegal.)

FAVE FRAME!

When you realize The Big A has QuokkasWombats…AND Koalas; well…whadya think? The Big J…or The Big A? (Although we’ll knock some points off The Big A for those horrendous big ol’ honkin’ spiders.)
