It's still January...

So I think it's safe to make this a New Year post of sorts. I'm declaring 2012 a year of adventure and to launch things off in the true spirit of this declaration I have agisted the children and within a week or so, I will find myself armed with binoculars and a handsome companion on the plains of the Serengeti. I will, of course be anticipating black maned lions, rhinoceros and other beasties, but I am wildly excited about having a little party with these fellows. Image from here by Pedro Szekely
