Photo Friday #50


Professor Purple Puppet is a curious little guy with a lot of idiosyncrasies. Since our last trip in Morocco he has earned his doctorate in Purpology. He still needs a lot of guidance from Spud about the ways of the world though. He loves to travel; you can see that he was very excited about coming along to Vienna with us.

Sometimes Spud and Professor Purple Puppet would argue.
Professor Purple Puppet : "Let's go to the Outback and find the kangaroos!"
Spud: "Kangaroos are in Australia ..."
Professor Purple Puppet: "Yah, yah, I know, the 'L' is silent, whatever, let's go see some kangaroos!"

Then he would start singing "Tie me kangaroo down sport, tie me kangaroo down ...". It was fairly embarrassing actually.

They always hug and make up though.

Another good reason to bring along the purple guys is that he is very safety conscious. He insists on hanging on while on the underground, for example.

Sometimes he's a little camera shy.

And sometimes he's a bit of a daredevil! Look at him hanging outside the cabin on the 100 year ferris wheel, the Riesenrad.

He really likes chin tickles.

In the end, the two of them were very good friends.

Whu?! No kangaroos in Austria?
