Cline Children Present Gift of "King Friday"
to JSU Field Schools' Live Animal Collection

Miss Katie Cline and Master Eric Cline, Dr. and Mrs. George Cline's (a.k.a. "Dr. Frog") children, present gift of California king snake (a.k.a. "King Friday") to the JSU Field Schools' live animal collection.

During New Year's week, JSU Field Schools received a surprise visit and gift from Miss Katie Cline and Master Eric Cline (Dr. and Mrs. George Cline's children). They presented Renee Morrison with one beautiful juvenile California king snake by the name of King Friday.

Pause for a "retro" moment: Many of us fondly remember the many magical hours we spent watching Mr. Rogers and his friends including King Friday who ran the Museum-Go-Round, Lady Elaine, Henriette Pussy Cat, and Daniel the (Shy) Tiger?

The Clines were in Mr. Roger's Neighborhood (Latrobe, PA) when they agreed to accept this pet snake from relatives. They brought this little reptile with them on their drive home from PA to AL to become part of the JSU Field Schools' live animal collection.

King Friday will be making its first appearance in front of thousands of visitors at the upcoming Sports and Leisure Show at the Quintard Mall in Oxford, Friday, February 9, and Saturday, February 10, from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Stop by to say "hello" to King Friday and pick up a 2007 JSU Field Schools' brochure.
