giraffes? giraffes!

That's actually the title of a very funny spoof book now out of print, but it'll do for this post.  Do I need a pet giraffe?  I do not.  I doubt anybody does.  Then why do I find myself envious of the Carr-Hartley family of Nairobi, who have not one but eight (eight) endangered Rothschild's giraffes?  And they have a hotel where they live with and protect these rare creatures.  It's called, wait for it, Giraffe Manor.  The giraffes will eat breakfast with you, or perhaps they will care to schmooze on the terrace over your evening wine.   Check out the virtual tours on the Giraffe Manor site. . . I wanna go!

That's now on my list of things I want to do.

Giraffes have a stately and peaceful quality to them. This sounds like a fantastic place:)
