Owen's story



My favorite part of the Rose Parade was the float with the little baby donkey. I think donkeys are so cute. Speaking of cute babies, not much is cuter than a little baby hippo. Check out Owen the baby hippo and Mzee the tortoise. The little hippo went through some trama after the tsunami, and has taken this male tortoise as his mama. This is the caretaker's blog. Article about it here.

i must admit that when i first saw the picture, i thought that the baby hippo and the turtle were copper sculptures. i was delighted to find out the real story. we are all "wookin pa nub" (buckwheat, translation: looking for love;-) ), sometimes in the strangest places. i think the true victory is when we find it.

congratulations on your new year's accomplishments. i say they cease to be resolutions once fulfilled. looks like 2006 will be your year!
