Hmmmm.... I'm a bit dubious...
Chris: And so you should be..
On ne dirait pas un vrai...
Chris: Correct!
I am suitably impressed!
Chris: Hey Larry, you wanna be my SPECIAL friend??

And we are jumping with him! Did you take this image in Bavaria last year?
Chris: In Bristol museum last week Philine..

You are very naughty, Chris
Chris: I know..
Tall tales, indeed, Chris. But not too stuffy! grin
Chris: Oh no Ginnie, not stuffy..
Serait ce un tableau ?
Si non ,belle prise de vue ..
Chris: A painting and stuffed animal Claudine. I do not have the energy to actually climb mountains..

Man alive and you could keep up with the Trimbok..... See what the fresh mountain air does with a person... I think you jumped from peak to peak too grin....
Chris: If only that was the case Astrid. The Trimbok is a far more energetic creature than I will ever be..

I thought that we were in the Mendips judging by the snow-covered peaks; they are even more precipitous than the Hampshire Alps that I encounter on virtually any ride heading north of Scumsville-sur-Mer. The Trimbok has its own pointy things.
Chris: Err...I am sure the Trimbok's pointy thing is quite significant in its life..

With words like what you have just created I wish you had stayed there …… for ever. Nah not really
Chris: Not interested in adventure holidays and wildlife then??

I am impressed with your recent venture Tiff. You did well to get this beast photographed.
Chris: This is an elusive mammal Chad, very busy pursuing its own agenda - gedditt!!!

Yes … We should get one organised
Chris: Your idea of wildlife and mine might not be the same..
An extremely rare creature that is, rightly, on the endangered species list.

An animal whose performance has never lived up to its potential
Chris: I can't bear to think of what you might mean by that..
After all the leaping to and fro, the trimbok looks like death!
Chris: In a very real sense you are dead right Mary..

How intrepid of you to step so close.
Chris: Yes indeed Anne, I am made out of pure intrepidness..

Probably somewhat hard to catch, but I should be able to make a great curry of it. Something like Trimbok Vindaloo.
Chris: Brilliant idea Louis!
You can go on amazing adventures within the confines of a museum, Chris. Travel the world without leaving home.
Chris: And it costs nothing too..
