  1. That would definitely be a fantastic party. He is beautiful! I do love giraffes. When I worked at the DMT (department of motor transport) we’d leave messages for the truck inspectors when they’d come in. The message would have a phone number (Sydney Taronga Zoo) for them to call Mr. G. Raffe ASAP. Luckily they saw the funny side, but they usually thumped us for our efforts 😀
