I See Red

I so cheated because I'm having a shit of a week:



And I can honestly say that I've never seen a red kangaroo in the wild. . . shame . . .shame . . .shame. Hey, it fits the Thursday Theme Red . . I'm sure others have much more to say.

Ocean Girl said...

If the kangaroos say red then it is red.

The Jelly Monster said...

Do ya know any songs about red kangaroos you could teach me? or could me sing "the red kangaroo sits in the old gum tree eating all the kookaberries he can see...."

Candie Bracci said...

Dang! Can't see the vid...but I've seen the red kangas, I have...

nick said...

You might of course have mentioned the classic 1978 song I See Red by New Zealand group Split Enz. Or there again you might not.

Leah said...

Take it easy Baino--sorry about your week--

I did like the kangas, though!

Jen Chandler said...

Ugh. Sorry to hear your week's been crappy. I've had a bit of a tough go myself. Here's to a good weekend and a better week next week!

Love the kangaroos!

Everyday Goddess said...

Works for me! And I hope you are having a better end of the week ~ isn't just about cocktail hour?

that's a good clip too!

Roy said...

Sorry to hear about your week. The Red Kangas are cool, though. Heh, heh! I liked the boxing match!

e said...

Sorry for the crap week, but the kangaroos are wonderful...

I hope your weekend is the perfect antidote to the week you've had.

Cheers!

Janice said...

Sorry to hear about your lousy week...maybe it will help you to come up with a great Friday Fuckwit. I hope next week is better.
Great kangaroos, too!

I don't care what you say, but Han Solo is a TV character in Hungary. I don't care with the rest of the World.

California Girl said...

those are pretty cool looking 'roos (isn't that what you guys call them?) the one scratching it's chest reminds me of my husband, especially wiping the saliva on it's chest. haahhahahaha!

(gawd, he would so kill me if he knew I wrote about him like this!)

Tom said...

hey! no pushing no biting no slapping no kicking!

i do love David Attenburrough.

hope your week improves.

Vita said...

JD's favourite colour is red! Mine is orange...

Darlene said...

I love the end where the young Kangaroo went running home to mama when the game got too rough. Just like some boys I used to know.

Thanks for the video and hope your week is better now.

Vagabonde said...

That was a very informative clip you showed on kangaroos. You remember how I posted on kangaroos in North Georgia last summer – there were a lot of them and the area was so large that it looked like they were in the wild, but I’d rather see them in Australia. They really run fast. I enjoyed that clip.

Jill said...

Love the video...Em and I just watched quite fascinated.

Sorry about your crappy week...hope it improves...tomorrow is FRIDAY!

unstranger said...

Nice one Baino. Nothing wrong with chilling out.

Grannymar said...

Those roos are tough, I would sure hate to pick a fight with one or have it run in front of my car!

Chill out girl, the weekend is almost here.

JeffScape said...

Shit of a week?

Sounds like a new column! Companion to Friday Fuckwit, perhaps?

Hmm... "Shit of the Week," at Baino's Banter.

I dig it.

Ronda Laveen said...

@JeffScape: I like it.

@Baino: I like it;) You're not cheating. Megan sez there are no rules as long as you state the theme. Come on over and get a massage.

Mmm said...

Baino--you are the only one to post of red kangas so there you go!!

hope your week gets better.

BTW, didn;t knwo that about Father xmas!!

laughingwolf said...

my mama was a redhead :P lol

Ces said...

I have never seen kangaroos fight! Look at them fight and alcohol was not even involved!

Jay said...

Well, that was fun!

Sorry you're having a crap week, Baino - hopefully things will look up. If not, don't the bastards get you down! ;)

Here, have a hug. *HUG*!

Colette Amelia said...

Hope the shitty week straightens the hell up! Have a great weekend!

River said...

Never seen a red kangaroo in the wild? Shame on you. Obviously your next holiday needs to be a bus tour to Alice Springs.

Stephanie said...

I've never seen a red kangaroo in the wild either! I can't remember seeing one at a zoo either...

Ms Hen said...

A baby kangaroo is a JOEY...

I always wanted to go to Australia...we do have a Bearded Dragon.. Australian reptile..

Thanks for visiting my blog..

Yes..self-love; self-care; self-respect; self-esteem.. I had to learn it in a 12 step program... and finally got it at 48.. better late than never (al-anon)

Kitty said...

Aww... I love the roos. We fed and petted some at the Australia zoo many years ago. It was quite exotic, coming from where we do, where the roadkill is mainly deer and possums and squirrels. Theys all good eatin', though.

Sorry about your week :(

C.M. Jackson said...

the video is amazing--here's hoping that you have a better week-c

lettuce said...

sorry about the crap week - i hope your weekend is helping you recover.

good old david attenborough. tho he's so widely taken off over here, he sometimes seems slightly like a parody of himself

roos are pretty weird aren't they?

Noni at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

So sorry to read that you have had a bad week.... but, happy to have seen the kangaroos! Wow. After watching the red ones, it really makes you appreciate the later post about the rain (I love the rain, too). Isn't it amazing about licking their forearms to cool themselves and that the moms can bring up fluids from their stomachs for their babies!

Jaime said...

that's not cheating. the kangaroos are cool.

Mrsupole said...

That was a cool vid, I hope that next week is better. And to watch the boxing match was great. I guess about the only wild creature I get to see, is my dang possum. I hope you get to see the red kangaroos in the wild someday. It seems like it would be fantastic to do that.

God bless.
