Good Friday Good Friday in my heart!*



The end of the week hath cometh. Had lunch at the Zoo cafe and took a nice stroll back through the Savannah (the Baboon boys are growing and Chad is nearly as big as older brother Taye); the Galap tortoises (#3 was up to his plastron in mud) and the eles (Silup had a bran ball which he was dropping from a great height).

The weather has been most pleasant - it was about 23 today, much the same over the next few days. I'm not sure how much of the tale of the cyclones that are crossing the north west coast we'll get in the next few days.

Looks like I'll be making a shiny thing purchase tomorrow - the latest Harry Potter fillum has been released on DVD.

Found on the rec.travel.australia+nz news group. Dunno who wrote it but it's very funny. Additions to the Strine Dictionary:

* billabonk: to make passionate love beside a waterhole
