Wheeeeee! (Continued...with a little less Wheee!)

In response to the zebra jumping post a few days back, one astute reader sent me a glorious link explaining how a few brave men dared to tame those striped beauties (and reindeer and yaks and pigs...and ostriches).  My father's family had their run with the latter:

My Great Aunt Virginia "Ginnie" taking control in Pasadena...

...her brother, my Grandpa Bill, in the midst of an even more thrilling ride.

You have to be careful with ostriches - one kick from a human leg can easily break their wings.

these are about the most wonderful photographs I have seen in a long long while- surely a short story, book will follow. Just delightful. G
