Family Fun with the Animals at the Zoo: A Story

One beautiful Friday afternoon in April, the Rubenstein-Haller-Locker family headed out to the Ramat Gan Safari Zoo for an afternoon of good ol' animal gawking and mimicry.

Savta and Tzofi decided to show some extra love for the baby goats in the petting zoo. Baa's were heard a'plenty as Tzofi led Savta to grant hugs to all the baby goats she could tackle, er, maul, er, pet.

Well, the whole family was just plumb tuckered out from all the excitement and decided to take a few minutes on a bench to regroup. But Tzofi kept pointing and yelling, monosyllabically,the equivalent of, "Safta, Look! Look who's here!"

And the three of them looked up to where Tzofi was pointing and she exclaimed, "Uncle Kivi!"

"Oh, Tzofi," chuckled the wise Dada. "That's not Uncle Kivi. But you're right, Uncle Kivi does have prehensile feet which he uses to climb and swing from tress."

"Oh," confirmed an enlightened Tzofi, "I better remember to ask Uncle Kivi about that next time I see him."

It's true. What can I say? I, too, see the resemblance. Good spot, Bobes!
