THE LION SLEEPS TONIGHT...

 


The Lion Sleeps Tonight/Today, not in the mighty jungle but in the San Diego Zoo.  It must have been very hot there too.

It's been a long time since I thought about this song.  I still like it!  You can listen to it here.

The photo is with thanks to my son and daughter-in-law who spent a few hours at the zoo yesterday.
