Good Times in the Badlands

We're visiting my Mother's family in middle-of-nowhere Nebraska. Boring, right? Well, yesterday we.......

- Played with a baby Bengal Tiger (he was trying to topple my three-year-old daughter and pulled on her skirt in a manner remniscent of old Coppertone ads)
- Pet an Albino Hedgehog and a little Badger named Marvin
- Got licked by a Dingo
- Saw a National Geographic dig of Rhinos killed by the ashfall of a volcano in southwestern Idaho
- Had milkshakes for lunch AND dinner
- Found out we are related to Charlemagne.

You just never know where a day will take you.
