An Elkenfroster Visit to My Library

Broadway Gal gave one of my minions a notice about an exciting family-fun program coming to my Library, courtesy of Silly Safaris.

Mooresville, Indiana will be having its Victorian Christmas Celebration on December 3, 2011, and my Library, as always, will be participating.  From 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., in the MPL Bonita Marley Community Room, you can experience wildlife wonders from the Arctic Circle.  It's mighty cold up there, but you'll be surprised at all the animals who call the North Pole neighborhood home.  See and learn about genuine, authentic North Pole critters, such as:
  • Mammals of various shapes and sizes;
  • Several unspecified creatures, like:
    • a reptile
    • a bird
    • a frog
    • insects
You will hear all about their migration patterns, temperature tolerances, effect of changing light cycles, and lots more learning stuff.  But, by far, the star attraction of this program is . . .

An Elkenfroster

People patrons know it as a reindeer, but it's an elkenfroster to us felines.  There's going to be one at my Library during Animals of the North Pole!  In the fur, right there, in your face, so close you could touch it!  Let me take this opportunity to suggest some protective measures, Boss Lady.
  • Little rubber booties for all four hooves.  Those elkenfroster feet will tear your Community Room carpeting like it was extra-thin turkey slices.
  • Pooper-scooper.  Elkenfrosters are big bovine dudes.  They produce, big-time, if you catch my drift.  That would be a great job for Scowl-Face.  Just saying.
  • Don't let the elkenfroster go outside into the MPL Courtyard and rub his antlers against the water volcano fountain.
Is this one of Santa's elkenfrosters, you might ask?  Sorry, but no.  Those are special flying breeds.  The one coming to my Library is more of a down-to-earth type.

This program promises fun for the entire family, and (brace yourselves) you do NOT need to register in advance!  Just come as you are.  Well, have a good wash first.  I mean, have some consideration.  We felines have a keen sense of smell.

P.S.  "North to Alaska" (1960), by Johnny Horton, was the title song to the movie by the same name, starring John Wayne (1960).  The song topped the American country music charts shortly before Horton died in an automobile accident.  He was only 35 years old.  Drive safely, my friends.  With #1 pop tunes like "The Battle of New Orleans" (1959), one can only imagine how many further hits Horton could have produced, and how much pleasurable music he could have played.
