Seems an enterprising robin and wife decided to set up houskeeping in the cedar tree outside the window of room 17. Does the stork visit robins or do they rely on Batman? Only time will tell - maybe those little blue eggs have something to do with it. Was that muskrat hired to dig out a dug out or maybe to give the janitors a chance to show off their hunting prowess? On a recent safari, custodians Gene Nichols and Vic Frideres, armed with a garbage pail, tracked down and successfully captured a live muskrat in the baseball dugout. After showing their catch to anyone available and being very sportsmanlike, they returned the critter to nature down by the river. Taken up with the hunting fever, Jumbo couldn't resist exhibiting his prize mongoose (species - Furrus on Springus). The creature had a peculiar habit of jumping into the face of anyone who happened to remove the lid of its cage. Jim Youngwirth showed his prize to many of Mr. Kramer's unwary biology students. At any rate, that's what's happening, as the song says, at the zoo. (Question: Is our zookeeper very fond of rum?)
