And the holiday schnapps continue ...


I am lion, hear me .... um ...

Here's another German holiday photo, in honour of Blogtoberfest.

I spotted this lion in the Bavarian town of Bamburg. I'm sure back in the day, this King of the Beasts did a fine job serving as guard and protector. But more recently the poor chap seems kind of ... worn out?

Join in the fun of Blogtoberfest over at Big Cat's Emporium.

  2. Can't really imagine him with a roar. He needs a facelift that's for sure!

  8. (You have to sing this one - Playschool style) * I'm a blobby lion. I'm creeping through the jungle. I've got no claws and not much jaws. I'm flopping through the jungle.

  11. Well, I suppose if we'd withstood years of acid-rain we'd all be a little worse for wear, too.... Or perhaps he actually started off as a statue of a large sweet potato?
