One penguin kisses another and we have...

"A Seal with a Kiss"






Though we’ve got to say goodbye, for forever...
tourists, please promise us this...
you’ll send us all your love every day, and remember
a seal with a kiss.



Okay, it's a young sea lion, I admit, but the Galapagos penguin is kissing his sweetheart there on the rocks. I first heard the song "Sealed with a Kiss" when it was recorded by Bryan Hyland in 1962, but it was recorded several times by other singers including Bobby Vinton, as in this YouTube video.

When we visited the Galapagos Islands, Dick just loved the baby sea lions, but I was there to see penguins! These little penguins have adapted to life right on the Equator, much farther north than any others, but changes in the sea currents may make it impossible for them to survive because they may lose their food supply.

Kay, this is just so adorable a photo, and once again perfection for the lyrics. I love how you put a special 'twist' to the words. Clever indeed.
