Christmas Party

By Lillian  
A special party for the Baboons!
Taken at Knowlsey Safari Park

Sorry again...but straight out of camera
And nothing to frame or maybe take out a blob or two
But hope that you like it.

Should this be Adults Only?

Still sunny here in Cornwall
And hope that you are all keeping warm.

Fantastic. Did they clean up the wrapping paper( the baboons I.e.) or leave it lying around like many people do( particularly visitors to a McDonald's !!)
Cold here in Brentwood
