YOUTH=





















These are pictures of one of the highlights of my life. When in Cairnes, Australia, I had my photo taken with Hogan, a baby koala bear. Look at that face! Isn't he the most precious thing you've ever seen?

In the first picture, the keeper is transferring Hogan into my arms. He looks a bit surprised, don't you think?

The second picture is the "posed" shot.

You look great in the posed picture. The koala looks a little dopey, but still very cute. I didn't know they had big claws like that. My photo is up too. (No cute furry animals, though.)

Wow, I'd love to be able to hold a lil' koala. Very cool!

How cute! Don't be fooled, though - koalas can be pretty aggressive! And they're not actually bears either :)

I've never been to Carins - the furthest north I've been is Townsville.
