Good things come in small, itty bitty packages...
...like Storyland, part of Carousel Park in New Orleans' massive, "twice as big as Central Park" City Park. That's me knockin' on the door. Do me a favor, open the door and let me in!

Dodged that one. Although I'm sure it would make the children laugh and play to see a lamb. I guess they're easily amused that way.
