Every summer at this time Mr. Mickey heads to the Pennsylvania countryside (near Kutztown) to spend the day with fashion icon Lynn Yaeger and her pals. It's Lynn's birthday and she loves to spend it cruising the antique markets and little towns of ole PA. A regular stop for us is an ice-cream shop that has a mini-zoo out back. This year the ice-cream shop got some new animals including what appear to be albino wallabies! There really aren't signs on the pens and MM is against zoos in general (except ones that have comfy natural-habitat style enclosures for the animals and that have breeding programs,) but you must admit that although these little nippers look like giant rats, they are pretty damned cute!
