Austrian native Arnold meets Australian native Baxter

Although Austria is far from Australia and the United States even further, all worlds apart, an Austrian met an Australian in Columbus, Ohio, this past weekend. The eastern grey kangaroo, Baxter, from Valley Exotics Zoo, met Arnold Schwarzenegger during the OFMA, Ohio Fair Managers Association, event.

Arnold Schwarzenegger's accomplishments run the gamut, from Mr. Universe to a lengthy Hollywood film career and eventually on to the governor of California. But holding Baxter was the highlight of the kangaroo's career!

Some people will be watching to see if Baxter gets to visit Arnold during the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus during February 27 - March 2, 2014. If it makes "The Terminator" smile, you know it's worthwhile.

While many people grew up watching the movies done by Mr. Schwarzenegger, it might be surprising to realize he is now in his mid sixties. The only thing to be said about that is, "Looking good, sir, looking good."
