Yak Watching Festival

[Because of Flogger, er... Blogger, Swami was unable to include an image of a tree yak]

I've noticed that birders are always talking about getting together to go somewhere and watch for rare birds. Yak herders of the world, you are not forgotten! The Swami is considering organizing a yak watching tour to spot some of the rarer specimens of the yak family.

The Swami knows that there are very few yaks that nest in trees. This means that yak watchers are not as likely to get a pain in the neck as are bird watchers (and occasionally, innocent bystanders).

In order to gauge interest and reserve the necessary space for those with free-range yaks as well as for those of you with pet lap-yaks, please leave a comment letting us know whether you would attend, cannot attend, might attend and how many yaks you would be bringing.

Please let us know if your yaks have any special dietary requirements, e.g. vegetarian, kosher, diabetic. The Swami especially realizes the difficulty of providing for the dietary needs of a diabetic yak.

Attention all lawyers: we will be complying with the Disabled Yak Act which ensures the rights of all yaks including those that are dead, ...er ...metabolically challenged.

If there are any of you who may not have traveled with your yaks recently, remember that under current, more stringent rules your yak will need to have proper ID and no more than one carry-on saddle bag.

"Metabolically challenged".
You crack me up.

I would be bringing only 75 of our yaks, and the only special needs we would have is that we have a yak who is allergic to yaks and one who doesn't like pickles.

You had me googling tree yak. "Disabled Yak Act."

The elusive Tree Yak, which I hope Blogger will let me post photographic evidence of this evening, is definitely NOT a disabled yak.

We can all be thankful next week that Congress passed the legislation that provides protection for our yaks.

You cannot believe how difficult it was, until we offered a junket to Yakistan, to get our representatives to enact a yak act.

Susan, Sorry you can only bring a few of your yaks, but I understand the difficulty of traveling with a large group. Plus, of course, there is the fact that you will all need to be in one motel room.
