K IS FOR...

K is for KOALA

 This photo taken about 4 years ago, and yes, that is a real Koala.  We were in Queensland, Australia on our way home from a conference.  How could I pass up such an opportunity?  Trouble is I got  all of about 5 seconds before they whisked him on to the next person.

I've been trying all day to post this video clip -- literally.  It is of my favorite music group, THE KING'S SINGERS a British acapella sextet that is truly brilliant.  They sing everything from very serious to  the Beatles and the Beach Boys.  The solution to posting it was very simple really, if I'd read the directions.  If you like their music visit You Tube, there are a lot of pieces on there -- some fun ones too.

What a shame you could only cuddle the koala for a few seconds. Mind you, he does look quite heavy ;-)

Dors is currently working on a koala piece and this immediately brought her koala portrait to mind. They are so cute, aren't they? I find myself feeling bad for this little guy though, being handed off from person to person. I hope he wasn't scared.

I didn't know The King's Singers still existed. I seem to remember them from way back.

All the best to both of you!

What wonderful little creatures Koalas are! I wonder if he enjoyed being passed around from person to person? He looks very sweet!

I enjoyed the King's Singers, too. But now they mentioned a Beatles song at the end and it was cut off, so I have to run over to YouTube. See what you did? LOL!

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday this week! :)

I wrote the word Koala in my post about K.
He seems very fine in your arms.
He is cute.

As soon as the people in this house get up, I will be able to turn up the volume and listen to this group. Have a wonderful day.

Love your K's, Chris!

Love the King's Singers too, but this is a new group of men that I've not seen before. Sorry, but I can't help thinking that the man to the far right looks like Mr. Bean!! (British comedian, for those who don't know him).
