Behavior comes in many flavors: Good Behavior, Bad Behavior, Questionable Behavior, and various Behaviorisms cavorting in between.
Rhinos tend to invest primarily in Spontaneous Behavior.
The fallout is Unpredictable, but usually fulfilling, being a true expression of where We are at.
Rhinos have issues with assuming that fruits, particularly Bananas, are not cunning, capable of sly activities. Few other plants of our experience seem to harbor ulterior motives.
But it is suspicious that Bananas play a role in so many mishaps, both funny and occasionally, fatal. Are We just supposed to believe that all is normal?
Is it safe to conclude that Bananas operate without intentions? It is a Fruity Question, worthy of Consideration.
Today is ‘Nationale Tulpentag’ in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. There is much festivity, and everybody gets to take, or eat, a tulip from the thousands on view.
The weather in the Netherlands must be different from other places, since this is also a major season for snow.
Rhinos are used to these climatic variations. We get around, and take notes.
Despite our polished demeanor, Rhinos occasionally get frayed around the edges. Our nerves become frazzled in the face of Life’s Eccentricities. Edgy, that’s what We get.
At such times We make the honest effort to pull ourselves together.
Other times, We nap and hope for the best.
Oddly enough, many of our Readers seem to think that Rhinos are not musically inclined. True, We have no instruments or sheet music, nor orchestras nor audience.
Still, We have passion and insight and dynamism. And We can hum about as well as anybody.
More importantly, Rhinos know how to conduct ourselves, which is more than many Critters can say.
Though there seems to be no logical relationship between dreaming of Famous Folk and combatting Bugs, the one seems to effectively work as a repellent for the other.
Rhinos don’t have to understand a thing to be grateful for it.
One Hundred Years ago today (!), Mr. Elzie C. Segar introduced Castor Oyl to his cartoon strip, Thimble Theatre. Castor was the older brother of Olive Oyl, and son to Cole and Nana Oyl.
It was not until nine years later that Popeye the Sailor made his first appearance in the same strip, sweeping Olive Oyl off her feet.
If you thumb back to December 9, 2019, you will see that YIR has dealt with Mr. Segar before. Rhinos everywhere are still chuckling.
