Unusual Best Friends

An 800 Pound Grizzly Bear
The following is 3.5 minute National Geographic video that tells about Casey Anderson and his special friend, Brutus. It’s an interesting friendship that shows how close man and animal can become.

A friend is one of the nicest things you can have,
and one of the best things you can be.

The friend is the man who knows all about you,
and still likes you.

Oreo Comes Today 
I’m going to be puppy sitting. Kevin’s bringing Oreo over sometime this morning. I look forward to playing with him the next couple of days.

The Knees
The orthopedic doctor looked at my knee x-rays yesterday, and said I had “crappy” knees. He that was an orthopedic term they used to describe knees. Ha!

The doctor gave me a cortisone shot in each knee. He’s hoping that may give me some pain relief. He said if that doesn’t help that we probably be planning for knee replacement surgery down the road.

Someone said that being kind is more important than proving yourself right. I believe that.

Quote of the Day
Don't knock the weather;
nine-tenths of the people couldn't start a
conversation if it didn't change once in a while.

Joke of the Day

A man passed away and went to heaven. Arriving at the pearly gates, St. Peter said, "come on in. I'll show you around. You'll like it here." Walking through the gates, the man noticed clocks everywhere. There were grandfather clocks, wall clock, watches, and clocks in every corner. It appeared that heaven was nothing more than a giant clock warehouse.

Surprised at how heaven looked, the man asked, "St. Peter, what's the deal? Why are all these clocks here in heaven?" St. Peter replied, "The clocks keep track of things on earth. There is one clock for each person. Every time the person on earth tells a lie, his clock moves one minute.""For instance, this clock is for Sam, the used car salesman. If you watch it closely, it will move." "Click." The minute hand on Sam's clock moved one minute. "Click." It moved another minute. "Sam must be into closing a customer right now," said St. Peter. "The minute hand on his clock moves all day."

The man and St. Peter continued walking. Soon, they came to a clock with cobwebs on the minute hand. "Whose clock is this?" asked the man. "That clock belongs to the widow Mary. She is one of the finest, God-fearing, people on earth. I bet her clock hasn't moved in a year or two."

They continued walking and touring heaven. The man enjoyed watching the clocks of all his friends. When the tour was finished, the man said, "I've seen everyone's clock but President Clinton's. Where is his clock?" Saint Peter smiled, "Just look up. We use his clock for a ceiling fan."
