Friday Night Before a Long Weekend

A Friday afternoon can bring up many lovely memories. One of my present colleagues remembered how his father once opened a bottle of wine only to find a mouse in it.

A visitor to my other blog recalled this story (I am sure they don’t mind me reposting it):

“One afternoon, I was in the backyard hanging the laundry when an old, tired-looking dog wandered into the yard. I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home. But when I walked into the house, he followed me, sauntered down the hall and fell asleep in a corner. An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out. The next day he was back. He resumed his position in the hallway and slept for an hour.
This continued for several weeks. Curious, I pinned a note to his collar: “Every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap. ”
The next day he arrived with a different note pinned to his collar: “He lives in a home with ten children – he’s trying to catch up on his sleep.””

And BBC’s Matt Walker reported on a bizarre story of a frustrated 100kg Antarctic fur seal’s rather aggressive proposition to a 15kg penguin.

As you can gather, this Friday night before a long weekend was full of rather strange animal stories.

So, in an attempt to take it all back to a human level I’m posting the 1978 video of Arabesque’s Friday Night.

I hope you all have a very good weekend!
