One time or two ago, I got carried away thinking about critters - big ones, little ones, and some in-between. Maybe it has been the recent news stories about alligators gobbling people, kids jumping into gorilla pits, and things like that, but critters have once again popped into my thinking (or lack of thinking, however that may be...) So I resurrected an old slide show kind of video about critters that I had sullied with verbalizations of some critter rhymes from "101 Dumb Poems." That poem collection was a mean trick that I had played on the innocent world one day when it was not watching me. Sort of like a long and drawn out "April Fools Day" trick of a collection of goofy doggerels that needed a censor a lot more so than an author I would ask you to pardon the narrating voice on this Critters video, but I will tell everyone straightaway that the narrating voice is far superior to what a singing voice would have been coming from those same vocal chords.

@pgntwo - Friend PGN - I read your comment and rightaway "cut and pasted" the video's URL - and it worked just fine. I hate it when YouTube uses "i," "I," "I (big i)," and "l (little L)" in their URL designations. If the text is of the "serif" type, all is OK. But MyLot is non-serif, so the i's, the l's, and the L's get all confused and folks type in the wrong ones. So, until MyLot decides to pictorialize my link, best it is to "cut and paste."

@Ceerios if you edit your post, put a carriage-return above and below the url and myLot will do the rest...

@Hatley - Ms Patsie - You are in luck. Alligators like male proteins.

I like animals and have had a lot of them but not any really wild ones that would eat or bite you.

I sometimes stop and reflect on all of the critters I've been friends with.
