"That's Something!" Sunday ~ September
I cannot believe it is the last Sunday and the last day of September. I guess Summer 2007 is but a memory now. When I saw the following clip, I thought "That's Something!" and knew I had to share it with you. {Double click on the arrow to start the video.}

A seagull in Scotland has developed the habit of stealing crisps from a neighborhood shop.
The seagull waits until the shopkeeper isn't looking, and then walks into the store and grabs a snack-size bag of cheese Doritos. Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and shared by other birds.The seagull's shoplifting started early this month when he first swooped into the store in Aberdeen, Scotland, and helped himself to a bag of crisps. Since then, he's become a regular. He always takes the same type of crisps. Customers have begun paying for the seagull's stolen bags of chips because they think it's so funny.

I am sure the golfer in the next clip did not think the following incident was funny. It gives a whole new meaning to "birdie" in golf:

All Things Zebra ~ September

I have been contemplating adding an "All Things Zebra" post each month. There are so many interesting zebra facts and videos around. You never know what I might "dig up" for the post. Feel free to email me if you come up with something Zebra for a post and I'll credit you in my post.

I have never been on a safari, but it's on my list. Here's what happened to a couple of people who ventured out one afternoon. {Double click on the arrow to start the video.}

I am dreaming of a MacBook. Wonder if one of these would fit it?

If you like animal prints, check out and see the fun laptop skins. {I have never purchased anything from them, so cannot speak for the company. Just thought this was fun.}

I close with my all-time favorite zebra cartoon:

Knitted Zebra's Aunt
by KZ's Brother

I have to say a word about the Knitted Zebra's Aunt, who just returned from a week of vacation in Alaska. She is the one who taught me about multi-tasking. This was long before any books were written about the subject. As a family we had always made gifts for each other.

KZ's Aunt was on her way home from college one weekend and passed through a small Mississippi town. The local policeman did a double take. Our Aunt was driving perfectly and within the speed limit; however, she was knitting while driving. {Please do not try this yourself.}

The policeman drove up behind her and turned his lights on. The Knitted Zebra's Aunt kept going. He turned his siren on to no avail. Finally the policeman moved over to the lane beside her, rolled his window down and yelled, "Pull Over"! KZ's Aunt responded by saying, "No ~ it is a pair of socks for my sister!"

KZ asks, "How does he come up with this stuff?! "

Our Aunt really is very talented ~ and that's no joke!
