GEORGE THE ESCAPED PELICAN
Say hello to George posing nicely here showing his best side. Unlike the escaped wallaby, (that may or not exist) this is photographic evidence of George out and about. George is a bit of a celebrity as he has escaped from the Wildlife Park, here on the Isle of Man, to Ramsey, usually the promenade, (where this pic was taken) on several occasions. Why he only flies to Ramsey is a mystery, must be good fishing for pelicans. He is not the first escapee pelican, that honour goes to Scotty in '98, and i'm sure he won't be the last. Scotty though made it to Scotalnd, so obviously a more adventurous pelican.
Todays link nothing to do with the Isle of Man. Fancied a change and came across a great site for anyone who remebers kola cubes, flying saucers,wham bars, pear drops and gobstoppers to a name a few, yes we are talking retro sweets. You can order retro sweets from this site. Great for nostalgia sweet fans, and for those brave enough to try them.Link as usual under links. Doh!
Only the ones in the wildlife park.
