Name that hippo

Original post made on Aug 19, 2008

There's a new animal that will be hanging out at Gingerbread Preschool and it needs a name.
A lifesize hippopotamus--albeit not a real one--is the newest addition to the renovations at Gingerbread Preschool. The preschool, which has been undergoing a much-needed update since it closed for the summer, will reopen for school on Sept. 29. A hippo statue will now reside in the school's new play yard.

I've been on this site maybe three times in 4 months and it seems like your life is on the computer writing about everything that happens in Pleasanton. Don't you have anything better to do? Really. Grow up.

Cholo, is a naughty troll but he gives me such chuckles ;~)).
It is like having a pet that misbehaves but is too cute to discipline.

I would call her "Lilly Grace", because she looks like one of the hippo's from the disney movie "Fantasia" who gracfully dances in the movie. Or a Lilly that floats through the water gracefully. she's so cute.
