Girbra




The SCBWI had a field trip to the Como Zoo last weekend. You can imagine my surprise when this Girbra showed up. A completely new species without any hoopla or publicity. Alert the media! (or maybe an art director...inside joke) But I suppose I should provide full disclosure. Apparently I'm the only one who actually saw the Girbra that day. I tried to ask one of the Zoo keepers about the Girbra and they blew me off. They said they were about to do one of their "Seal" shows and were too busy for silly questions. Another employee only had time for a, "No comment" They ask for a $2.00 donation to get into Como Zoo. I can't help but think that if they had Girbra shows, people might leave twice that in the donation box. Something to think (or laugh) about!

Sharon, The Girbra is so cute, and the monkey too! It was a fun day. Love the butterfly.

I saw a Girbra once but we won't talk about the things I saw in the early 70's, LOL! Thanks for the adorable comment on Koda's vacation entry :-)

I think you've come up with something, Sharon! a girbra! He's a combo adorable giraffe kissing a lovely butterfly and a zebra with short, stocky, sturdy legs! There should definitely be one!

Haha, that's something new...a girbra! Have you heard about the labradoodle?

He is wonderful, every zoo should have a pair in residence. The butterfly and the monkey make the scene complete. I love your paintings.
