A Baby Porcupine

Have You Ever Seen a Baby Porcupine?
I have never seen one, but a few days ago a good friend in Kentucky sent me some pictures. I never thought they would look so
cute. Just look…




Also included with the above pictures was the following:

Fable of the Porcupine

It was the coldest winter ever. -  Many animals died because of the cold. The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together.  This way they covered and protected themselves; but the quills of each one wounded their closest companions even though they gave off heat to each other. After awhile, they decided to distance themselves one from the other and they began to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their companions or disappear from the Earth. Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. This way they learned to live with the little wounds that were caused by the close relationship with their companion, but the most important part of it, was the heat that came from the others. This way they were able to survive.

Moral of the story: The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people, but the best is when each individual learns to live with the imperfections of others and can admire the other person's good qualities.

Joke of the Day

Two well worn bills arrived at the Federal Reserve Bank to be retired - a twenty and a one. As they traveled down the conveyor belt, they struck up a conversation. The twenty reminisced about the interesting life he had, traveling all over the country. "I've been to the finest restaurants, Broadway shows, Las Vegas , Atlantic City ," he said. "I even want on a Caribbean cruise. Where have you been?"

"Oh," said the one dollar bill, "I've been to the Methodist church, the Episcopal church, the Lutheran church."

"What's a church?" asked the twenty.

Oh, Tennessee Granddaddy, when I saw the sweet porcupine, I remembered taking in a hedgehog. My children were delighted. The hedgehog gave birth to three wee ones. What a surprise! They resembled the head of a toothbrush.
I couldn't resist picking them up and petting them. When I came home from work. The babies were gone. Being a city gal, I didn't have a clue. A neighbor told me it must have been my smell on the babies. I hope this porcupine baby fared better.
