I found this on the Yosemite National Park page (USA) :thumbs_up:

Quote:
The rangers that answer the phone and mail in our public information office receive a lot of letters, but this might be one of the best in recent years.


(Text of the letter:
Dear Park Rangers
I am a Yosemite Junior Ranger. I went to Yosemite recently and accidentally brought home two sticks.
I know I'm not supposed to take things from the park, so I am sending them back. Please put them in nature.

Thank you,
Evie)

The integrity of youth. Pity it is shed in most cases by growing up.

Sooo cute :k

My daughter once invited a elephant to her birthday party at Mapungubwe and was very dissapointed that he didn't pitch till we explained they are vegitarian and he don't want to make a scene with the BBQ.

We did see "him" later the day on a drive and she gave him a scholding for not explaming to her about his dietry needs she was willing to pick some grass for him and would share her apples.
