Anyone who knows me will need no guesses as to why I enjoy these Christmas decorations at our local shopping mall. They have been put out on display for many years, I feel like they are old friends. We got on the elevator and went down to the ground floor.
I don't go up to the mall too often as I'm not one of your keenest shoppers, and only go when I absolutely have to. My furry friends here made my trip more palatable and as I always carry a camera in my purse I was prepared.
Smile! I'm going to count one to three.
Don't worry, this tiger might look fierce but the bunny is safe. I have it on good authority that he is a vegetarian and that they are in fact very good friends.
"A brave heart and a courteous tongue. They shall carry thee far through the jungle."
"Through the jungle very softly flits a shadow and a sight. He is fear, oh little hunter. He is fear!"
And I think this one is my favorite. "Oppress not the cubs of the stranger but hail them as sister and brother, for though they are little and fussy, it may be the Bear is their mother." Rudyard was a pretty smart fella!
I will probably be back one more time before Christmas but after that it will no doubt be another six months before you'll see me set foot through those doors. I hope you have enjoyed your tour around the 'jungle'.
