Tennis, Anyone?

Well, this was to be about tennis brats, believe it or not, and the silliness of that hierarchy, and how people pay to go see a bunch of spoiled brats hit a funny little green ball around a court. Oh, bloody hell.

But those pix, it appears, got lost in the shuffle. Instead, I am just left with these pix from an African Wild Safari. I can't fathom what one has to do with the other. Unless it's the absurdity of enclosing wild animals in people-proof enclosures for our benefit.

That would be a lot like everything, nowadays. Very few things have been left how we found them. But such is the way of the world. We have to prove to our infantile little minds that we are superior and we can conquer anything.


  1. i like random pictures! especially on saturday when everything and everyone is so random and floaty be well and drop by sometime! xoxoxo

  2. I like watching animals. The zoo is one of my favorite places to visit. I'd like to go on a safari some day. But I understand that even with the limited number of game preserves and protected areas for wildlife, it's still not enough. The human population still continues to grow and encroach upon wildlife habitats.

    I would like to think that we can work out a better way to live in harmony with nature. Because try as we might to think that we're on top of the food chain, we're really just a very small part of the ecosystem. Life can go on without us--it has done so for billions of years until we arrived here, and it can do so again long after we are gone.

    The zoo, even in childhood, wwas one of my fave places too, despite the fact one of my uncles stupidly lowered me into the polar bear pit when I was a kid. Let's face it -- some people are simply stupid, and my dad just about killed the guy. As it turns out, he was later discovered to have diddled my cousin. She's OK now, I think. He truly WAS an idiot. Life CAN go on without us.

    MOST females have baboon butt. In fact, as you have duly noted, it is the WAY of the adult human female body.

    Most females have baboon butt?? Please explain. I find most zoos rather depressing, but the reality is that there is only a finite amount of space on this earth, and if it weren't for enclosures a lot of animals would no longer be with us. We cage people too (sometimes literally) just in different ways.

    Did I say that? in any event, I'm not sure that's true. But if it IS true, women have fat because of chid-bearing and women form fat tissue, generally, in all the same places. It's an unavoidable thing of your lovely gender. And it should be accepted by the male.

  7. Lis: I didn't REALLY say baboon butt!! MJ, the crazy one fom Vancouver, said it first! Then sort of FORCED me into saying it.
