    Wonderful. I will come back to vote, but I can tell you right now my vote is to make Teacher Mahlon a regular feature.

    I love this column! Please don’t get rid of it. I’m one of the ones who paid a dollar for a leave of lettuce. Money well spent to see my son get licked by the giraffe!

    Another great column by our favorite teacher, Mahlon. This one makes me want to take a trip to the zoo. Maybe someday on a vacation, I would be so fortunate. I really hope Mahlon will be kept on as a contributor.

    I enjoy Teacher Mahlon’s writing so much! Every word counts, creating color and vivid scenes for the reader. And his mature, patient, loving perspective is soothing to those of us living harried lives.
