Photos from an African blog reader

Written by chuck on June 17, 2015 – 7:15 am -

I have attached a pic of my youngest son and girlfriend with Savanha , the cheetah from Tshukudu. She still hunted her own food and lived in the wild, but had gotten used to people. One could feed her water from your bottle. She was killed by a lion late last year just after her cubs were born.

The other is a pic of Marius releasing a 3m Black mamba into the bush again. We caught it in the roof of a residents garage. Marius is a ranger with the Kruger Park.

A picture is worth 1,000 words!

A person is inclined to think, “I am not going to forward any more political e-mails.”
Then one like this comes along! A picture is worth 1,000 words!

An old East Tennessee saying:

“Y’all can’t get the water to clear up,
Until you get the turd out of the creek.”

DEER VISITS EVERY MORNING

Written by Ed on May 31, 2012 – 5:11 pm -

These pictures were taken in Harrisburg , Pennsylvania
.
‘It’s just too awesome not to share. Deer visits cat in yard every morning!

The owner finally took pics.

Those we love don’t have to be exactly like us.

Life is too short for drama and petty things so kiss slowly, laugh insanely, love truly, forgive quickly and pray often!

“Friendship isn’t about whom you have known the longest, it’s about those who came and never left your side.”

Too cute to not share!!! Have a great day!!!

The Bridge and the Bear …

Written by Ed on April 19, 2012 – 10:49 pm -

“We walk by faith and not by sight.” II Corinthians 5:7
The Bridge and The Bear

This bridge is on the Old Donner Pass Highway .
It has a spectacular view of Donner Lake and
Donner Pass on Route 40.

A bear was walking across Rainbow Bridge ( Old Hwy 40 at
Donner Summit , Truckee ) on Saturday when two cars, also
crossing the bridge, scared the bear into jumping over the
edge of the bridge. Somehow the bear caught the ledge
and was able to pull itself to safety. Authorities decided
that nothing could be done to help Saturday night so they
returned Sunday morning to find the bear sound asleep on
the ledge.

After securing a net under the bridge the bear was tranquilized,
fell into the net, lowered, then woke up and walked out of the net.

There is a moral to this story; this old bear made
a wrong move and found he was hanging by his nails. Somehow
he was able to pull himself up onto the ledge where he saw he
was in a very bad, impossible situation and what did he do?
Yep, he took a nap and sure enough, God took care of the
situation while he was asleep.

The moral of the story is that when confronted with a bad
situation, sometimes the best solution is to take a nap and
let God take care of the rest.

I think I’m going to take a nap right now.
God is on the job.
Hugs, Prayers and Sweet Dreams.
