    Just as well he was friendly. There was an article in the local press here about a woman who was attacked by a kangaroo in her backyard - Bendigo I think it was. Made quite a mess of her and she ended up in hospital. They're vicious buggers when cornered.

    I came across three wallabies bounding towards me in Westerfolds Park (suburban Templestowe) last week -- cute. When they saw me they stopped and went off in a different direction.

    You don't get that everyday. Or ever in this part of the planet. Had a momma grizzly and her two cubs eyeball me from the roadside when riding on vacation. I was doing the sprint speed math and getting a bit nervous.

    There are 10 types of people in the world - the ones that can count in base 2, the ones that can't count in base 2, and the ones that didn't expect this to be in base 3.

    Cripes you had a lucky escape. Next time don't venture out without putting Vegemite behind your ears.

    Are you sure that is good enough. Over here we have the original-Marmite- and you either hate it or love it. I'd hate to come across a Roo that loves the stuff.

    I have a marvelous photo sent by a friend in Qsld. - Brisbane. It's of a 5 or so years child trying to pet two full-grow 'Roos. Who happen to be making love! I don't know how many of you know this - but this is a great way to kill your kid! Or yourself! LOL.

    Another photographer caught the scene - with the 2 laughing parents shouting commands to 'Little Joey' as they snapped their pictures.

    I mean - how would YOU like it?

    How do you keep an idiot in suspense?
