Popular children's song in Australia:

PLEASE DONíT CALL ME A KOALA BEAR

by Don Spencer/Allan Caswell

Iím a koala, not a bear, and I donít think itís fair,
The way that people always add a word that isnít there.
Iím a marsupial (and proud of it),
And there can be no doubt of it,
Iím closer to a kangaroo
Than I am to a bear.

CHORUS:

So please donít call me a koala bear,
Iím not a bear at all.
Please donít call me a koala bear,
Itís driving me up the wall!
If your name was Tom and everyone called you Dick,
Perhaps youíd understand why Iím sick, sick, sick -
Iím simply a koala and I want the name to stick,
Please donít call me a koala bear!

I live here in Australia, in a eucalyptus tree.
Iím as cuddly, cute and charming as an animal can be.
I donít understand, fair dinkum,
How anyone could think them Grizzly bears and Polar bears
Are anything like me.

Goofyfoot, your photos are beautiful. I can't decide if I'm looking at a painting or a photo. smile

MG: awwwwwwwww on the koala. Thanks for the "tune" as well : )

GoofyFoot: (can we call you something for "short"? GF? Your real name?) Your userid doesn't seem to "fit" your photography skills - that last one is every bit as breathtaking as the previous one of waterfalls : )

Flopsy: that's one purdy-birdy (nice shot - sunlight was perfect to accentuate the iridescent tail feathers!).

Ozzz: Whatever the weight of their baby is, I suspect, but lol! Reminds me of how much wood could a woodchuck chuck ~

Speaking of "babies", here's a pregnant mamma doe resting in the shade beside a golf course bunker (apparently she had no idea how badly I golf LOL)

I don't know if it's just me but above the deer it looks as though there's a giant ant ready to pounce so the quality of your golf may not be her main concern!

This rather less than scenic image made me laugh. Behind the dead caravan, the wasted windmill, and the reclining flagpole, someone had painted the hut!

Auntie - Beautiful reflection on the lake
GF - Breathaking photo
Flopsy - Don't know if I would like to be the chicky around that gorgeous rooster.
MotherG - Little koala looks so cuddly and loved the tune provided.
Jake - Doesn't matter how good or bad YOUR golf is, I really don't think that is a good resting place for a pregnant mama, somebody is bound to hit her sooner or later!
Christina - Gorgeous shot

Ripe grapes on the vine ready for picking.

Although the appellation, "goofyfoot" refers to a snowboarding stance, and not how badly I dance, for ease of reference pehaps simply Larry would suffice.

I am fortunate enough to have a pond on my property, providing source material for much of my photography.

Here is an example: A dragonfly from last fall.

I saw this saddle in the National Museum of the Native Americans in New York. I was
fascinated in the way it was constructed.

Plenty of basalt rocks remain on the old quarry site that is now Newport Lakes.
Here's a good use for them.

Szabs: I'm very jealous of that fireworks pic. My attempts almost always look like graphic art on drugs lol!

We have our annual Balloon festival this weekend here in Bristol and there was a
mass lift-off this evening in spite of quite low cloud cover. This photo gives a
good indication of just how many balloons got airbourne in a short space of time.
