Wow. I just thought it was a cool picture. I thought everyone would just laugh. But now I guess I should explain what that was all about. No, we do not have a camel, though I think that was be just fine. I'd have one if I had a place for him. But we don't and I'm not going looking for one. This picture was taken when I got back from Iraq. While I was gone Mike found this drive-thru safari place, and wanted to take me there. You just drive through all this land and see all sorts of animals from Africa or Asia, or wherever they come from. And before you drive in you can buy little bags of feed to give to the animals. Well, obviously the animals come to expect these big metal things to reach out and feed them. The ostriches were the worst and would nearly peck your hand off....think of hand feeding a giant chicken. But the camel was just plain impatient. Mike placed the bag of feed between his legs and offered a handful of feed to the camel, who gobbled it up pretty quickly. And before he could get another handful the camel stuck his head right into the window, took a look around, then plunged his head right into Mike's lap! It was hilarious! I was lucky enough to snap this pic! We had so much fun that day.
Today is Mike's birthday....he's 35 years young.
