Vintage Blorp

Time for an oldie: This roly-poly puddle of blorpitude was part of the welcoming committee for the First Australasian Antarctic Expedition, almost one hundred years ago.

Your Thought for Today

When you’re feeling small and alone, and the world doesn’t make any sense, all you need is a really good friend with a really good grip.


Something to make you go “aw,” from deeleea.

Are We Too Late for the Audition?

“Hey, I heard you guys were re-making ‘Land of the Lost’ and me and my friend here would be perfect in it!  We got this specialty act, see:  It’s a lizard… riding on top of another lizard! Is that crazy?  Is that a wacky bit?  I’m telling ya, they loved us in the Catskills!  So when do we start filming?”


Next Season, On “Meercat Manor”

The Whiskers family, tired of spending cold winters underground, pools their appearance fees from season one and buys a McMansion in foreclosure.  Catch the season opener Thursday at 8 PM, followed by an all-new “Flip This Burrow.”


I just love what they’ve done with the place, Rachel N.

Can’t… Handle… the… Squeaking!

Baby otters… the squeaking… too cute… must not… squee… got to… hold on… must… cover ears… can’t resist… the squeaking… no use… defenses failing… ear-covering ineffective… brain turning to… pudding… squee-ing imminent…

Clover ‘Coon

Here is the back story. Miss. McCoonersons here fell out of a tree. Attempts to return her to Mom were unsuccessful.

On The Hunt

Now at a wildlife rehab center, she gets wonderful care and will be released back into the wild. [Head tilt]


Suzannah H. At this age, it’s easier to forgive them for ripping into catfood late at night.

Yee-up, another Memorial Day weekend…

Time to dust off my uniform for the annual veterans’ hop down Main Street, then it’s over to the Loyal Order of Wallabies Hall for some of Ethel Lundegaard’s famous hotdish.  (Ooh, my lumbago’s acting up; maybe I’ll skip the parade…)

Uh, would you kids in the background like to get a room or something?  SHEESH!

Save some room for Eunice S’s sender-inner surprise, gramps!

Paging Rule #7, Come in Rule #7

Remember back in ot-five when we declared Rule of Cuteness numero 7? The koalas are BACK to make sure you all got it through your thick skulls.


Bam! Close up AND 90 degree rotayshe! (no extra charge)


Kim N. over at TheGirlsNY sent this proshness over.

Honorary Moms

A friend of Sender-Inner Amy L. reports: “I’ve had another crazy adventure! On the Gold Coast (about 2-3 hours from my town), hundreds of baby flying foxes have been abandoned by their mothers for unknown reasons…”


“There have been a few violent storms and the parents just left the colony, leaving their babies starving to death. So a group of wildlife rehabilitators are rescuing them. They are an endangered species (grey-headed flying foxes).”


“…It was quite an experience! We worked for 18 hours two days in a row so I’m tired! But it was all worth it because they are so darn cute (see pictures)!”


Encore: Nice Antennae, Baby.

Spring is here, and our lawn’s got the dandelions to prove it.  Yaaay.
Never mind that, though; this CO Classic is prettier.

Ladies and Gentlemens, I present to you: The Tiniest of Feets!
