    Aw…I know what it’s like to be the late bloomer. It gets better, don’t worry.

    Stacey’s not all that, anyway.

      Snerk. (Yay, autocorrect finally accepts that as a valid word!)
      I allowed myself a good ten seconds to imagine what “horn growing in already” could mean. My mind was naughtier than the picture.

        My first thought was unicorns. I guess I wasn’t too far off…

          Unicorns exist; they’re just chubbier and stumpier than we imagined =)

      We had a nephew who worked with rhinos in Africa and one day he met a rhino in the bush. He walked right up to it because he had recognized it as being one of the babies he’d worked with earlier – happily, it remembered him, too.

      Good thing they’re vegetarian.

    I wonder two things :-
    1) If her name is ‘Jane’ (The girl).
    2) If ‘George’ was the one filming with his cell phone

    (This also happened in Klamath Falls, right, NTMTOM?)

      • Holly June 23, 2016 / 2:41 pm

        Klamath Falls . . . do you live in Oregon? We love you here!

          I love “…on account of he has asthma and stuff.” It feels so perfectly middle America.

        According the caption on YouTube:

        Published on May 20, 2016

        On Ol Pejeta [Ol Pejeta Conservancy, in Kenya] children get an incredible chance to meet Ringo the rhino. They get up close and personal with him and learn about wildlife and conservation. This is the future. Only if we teach our children to respect and appreciate animals will we be able to turn the tide of extinction. So bring your child to Ol Pejeta and teach them to be kind.

          My kids are all grown up, but I still want to take them (and me!) to Ol Pejeta and go for a walk with Ringo! I absolutely LOVE rhinos.

          And Murray C., your nephew knows what a lucky, lucky human he is to have had the opportunity to work with these amazing animals, right?

    Ok, since no one’s asked. Where was the mum?

    • Faye June 23, 2016 / 5:58 pm

      The kid’s mum was waiting in the van. All ok. Oh the rhino mum. Lol.

    Adorable pair of kids!๐Ÿ˜‰ Very accurate dialog there, NTMTOM!

    Nom Tom –

    I took a creative writing class once (I sucked BTW) and one of the concepts was that really good authors can write in different voices. Like when I read “Memoirs of a Geisha”, I never paid any attention to who the author was because I just inhaled the book. When I finished and read the “about the author” part, I think I must have just been in a complete haze for about half a day because I was completely devastated that it was not really written BY A WOMAN.

    I feel that way about how you put on all these different voices. Sometimes you’re a child, sometimes a debutante, sometimes a hamster dog.

    Anyway, I love your different voices. Thanks every day, even if I don’t come out and say it.


    • Murray C. June 23, 2016 / 11:01 pm

      I have the same regard for NTMTOM’s ability to do that. Very gifted you are, sir. And you don’t miss a trick!

    OMG! I am soo moving to where baby rhinos follow you home!
