|Kookaburras during tucker time at Queen's residence|
It is with great pride we announce that Little Darwin has been appointed aide- de-camp to the limp falling Queen of the Jungle. She turned up on our doorstep all shook up after tripping , rocketing forward, denting a car panel (with her head ? ) , hurting her wrist and collecting assorted abrasions. The ambulance was called , she went off to the after hours clinic and now has a wrist held in a permanent splint , facing a possible operation on a thumb .
Larry the cussing Lorikeet , boarding with the Queen , took one look at her the day of the accident and sympathetically muttered,"Bugger ! Bugger! Bugger !"
In her incapacitated state , the Queen of the Jungle, by proclamation, made Little Darwin her chauffeur and carrier when she goes shopping for items bought in bulk to feed a large part of the Magnetic Island wildlife-Curlews , Lorikeets , Galahs , Cockatoos , Kookaburras, Plovers and assorted troublemakers like Crows , Currawongs , a Dodo or three .
