Hungry, Hungry Hippo! August 2, 2020

 This is day 142 for me being home during COVID19. At my good pal Mary Schwalm’s request I am continuing with my theme of children’s games. Since Mary’s favorite zoo animal is the hippo – here we go.  Hungry Hungry Hippos is a table top game for 2–4 players. The idea for the game was published in 1967 by toy inventor Fred Kroll and it was introduced in 1978. The objective of the game is for each player to collect as many marbles as possible with their ‘hippo.’ These fun photos were taken at the Toledo Zoo (thanks Jeff), Sedgwick County Zoo and the Dickerson Park Zoo (thanks Katniss)). The two photos where both Mary and I are feeding the hippo is actually Henry, little Fiona’s father, before he moved to Cincinnati. RIP Henry. You were an amazing hippo. Stay safe please and wear a mask.

Wow – these are spectacular – what a lucky lady you are!
And for the day’s theme joke….. What did the grape say when the hippopotamus stood on it? Nothing, it just let out a little wine! 🙂
