Mom Taxi XXI: Disneyland Drop Off

[OK, it's 10am. Now you kids have seven hours here at Disneyland. I want you right here in the Koala-Park at 5pm sharp. Everyone have their lunch money and cell phone?]

Koalas share a hug
From Cats, Ducks & Beavers.

G’day, Toby!

Alicia A. from The Land Down Undah sent this email to us. “We had a young wild koala stay in our gum tree for a couple of days. We named him Toby :) and he was happy to pose for this selfie. All he wanted to do was drink and cuddle!”

["All he wanted to do was drink and cuddle." Now that is the life, my friends. -Ed.]

Well Hello Then, Mate!

Look at this little snorgler Down Undah. Cute, eh? Of course he/she is.

Gum Crawl
Ever hear the expression “Appearances can be deceiving,” Alicia A.? (Turn speakers up–WHOA.)

“Ever wanted to know what a Koala sounds like? It is the Festive Season here in Australia, for everyone clearly! I found this guy strutting down our road after a few too many Gum Leaves!” -Alicia A.

Cute Flavor of the Month: Koalas!

September is Save the Koala Month! When it comes to Koalas it seems that our far away friends are as popular as ever. With their population down over 50% it is time to get the word out now to keep these adorable cuties from becoming endangered. Happily, a lot is being done before it is too late!

Keen Koala Keesses

“Keen koala is so hooked on kisses from a pretty cafe boss he meets her once a week for an after-hours smooch. Eddie has been romancing Lucy Ziwiski at her home in Noosa, on Australia’s Sunshine Coast, for the past month. He gave her a kiss to say hello and ever since then the koala returns every week for his kiss from the 36-year-old and even turned up on the porch of a neighbour’s house she was visiting.”

I Come From A Land Down Under

So you’re getting ready to go to work, and all of a sudden WHOOPS look who comes wobblin’ THROUGH THE FRONT DOOR.

Welcome to the world of Alicia A. in Adelaide Hills, South Australia. Oh, but she’s not done yet. She had a backyard visitor too, who was anxious to get his drink on. And drink he did.

And drink.

And drink.

FAVE FRAME DOWN UNDAH, MATE!

Koala vs Puppy Wars

It’s one of the oldest rivalries. Koala or Puppy? Koala or Puppy? Which do you prefer?

Some say classic Koala is best.

Image (2) koalas_for_steve-3383.jpg for post 3383
Because Koala is the original.

Some say they are both the same.

If you had to choose, which would you go with?

And here we have a Slight Baroo with Bonus Pudgie Paws
Some say Puppy is too sweet.

They say Puppy copied Koala.
