A Very Thankful Lion

Having a lion wrap its massive paws around your neck sounds scary. But it does not scare Ana Julia Torres. She runs an animal shelter in Colombia. She has a special relationship with Jupiter, an African lion. She rescued an abused and malnourished Jupiter from a traveling circus. The two bonded over months of rehabilitation. Now, they greet each other in a most unusual way. Watch it here...

Fishing Line
Since we talking about a lion, I'll mention that I have been putting new fishing line on my reels. For my crappie fishing rigs I have been putting on both 4 and 6 pound test. The lighter line of my lighter rods, and the 6 pound line on the slightly heavier rods. I got through with this chore yesterday... counting up, I've put new line on 18 crappie rigs. Why to I need so many rods and reels? My wife asks this, too. Check out My Crappie Fishing System.

Jokes of the Day

A blind man is walking down the street with his seeing-eye dog one day. They come to a busy intersection, and the dog, ignoring the high volume of traffic zooming by on the street, leads the blind man right out into the thick of traffic. This is followed by the screech of tires and horns blaring as panicked drivers try desperately not to run the pair down.

The blind man and the dog finally reach the safety of the sidewalk on the other side of the street, and the blind man pulls a cookie out of his coat pocket, which he offers to the dog. A passer-by, having observed the near fatal incident, can't control his amazement and says to the blind man, "Why on earth are you rewarding your dog with a cookie? He nearly got you killed!"

The blind man turns partially in his direction and replies, "To find out where his head is, so I can kick his rear end."

(There is a moral in the above joke: Everyone who rewards you may not have the best intentions in mind for you.)
