This was the announcement on the news last night. I checked my calendar to ensure it was not April Fools Day. Then I checked my location in case I had been mysteriously relocated to Australia.
Nope – I am in eastern Washington state and it is still mid-August.
Hopkins, a wallaroo, is missing not far from where I live. He apparently escaped from his home when he was frightened by some construction noise. I hope he is found safe and sound.
