... the cave, don't hurt yourself, shout if you have a problem. Then we get geared up with our helmet, lights and gloves before heading down into the cave via the elevator.

How fun was THAT ? FUN !
The one I "caught" today was about the size of a banty rooster. Now, either I was quite small at the time of seeing the cartoons; my memory is faulty; or they don't make 'm so big any more. But the Road Runner I remember was about the size of a kangaroo. hmmmm . . .
