You never know what will come in the mail.
Look at what Mrs. Koch received:
Here's a closer look.
It's a hug from her little friend Elizabeth.
Elizabeth's family lives several hours away. Whenever they visit, Elizabeth looks
for her friend Mrs. Koch and gives her a big hug. Then they have a chat.
Mrs. Koch tried her hug on for size...
When I commented on the hugging hands' bling and upscale manicure, Mrs. Koch laughed.
"That's Elizabeth! Isn't it wonderful?"

Tell me this parrot doesn't look
like he's ready for a sarcophagus!
Actually, he's ready for a lovely paint job, the addition of a colorful umbrella, and a trip to Santa Claus for installation in Splashin' Safari's Crocodile Isle.
Meanwhile, as you may have noticed, our webcam is off to rehab (no, not the same place Britney went to) and should be back in two or three weeks.
Happy Saint Patrick's Day tomorrow!

One of the new slides for Crocodile Isle appears to be in a perpetual yawn.
They're still working on the new slide, of course; surely we'll see a more colorful version soon.
He was kind enough to also pose for a profile shot:
Meanwhile, the zebra slide is ready to go.
Your assignment at the supper table this evening is to solve that age-old question: black stripes on white or white stripes on black?

That's the pool you get into right before you ride Zinga, ZOOMbabwe, Watubee ... and now, Bakuli.
It was the last piece to be added, a full 73 feel above the splash pool.
Waiting to fly.
But first, there's a bit of prep work up top.
That's Randy smearing on the Super Glue.
Meanwhile, Will chats it up with John Simpson from Channel 7. Will talks with his hands a lot ... in fact, if he had a scrap of paper and pen handy, he'd probably be sketching out something for John.
It's an engineer thing.
For some reason, we all got a kick out of this, on the side of one of the cranes:
Recognize that fellow up top?
It's Craig! (Remember Craig?)
He's ready to wrangle.
When that last piece is up high enough, Craig will grab the tether and guide the start tub into position.
Grab it, Craig!
Still a lot of work before we turn on the water, but Bakuli is all in one piece.
One big, huge, twisting, colorful piece.
