Oh Oh!

Little Penguin looking how to pass his day.

Hungry seal
Also looking to see how to pass his day.

They have a friendly game of tag.
Thankfully the penguin got away.

I always liked these little guys in their tuxedos .
They are soooo cute.

I also thought seals were cute till I saw one eat a penguin.

Then I thought killer whales were cute till I saw how truly smart they were.
They are thinking creatures who know how to hunt in coordinated packs and teach each other,
in a similar way men hunters, teach others.

It is a fact of life that survival plays a big role in how creatures behave.
Sometimes they are friends and sometimes a friend becomes your next meal.

I remember how many bunnies and chickens, friends I raised and loved,
became food on my plate.

I would unknowingly eat them, and then go out still looking for them, asking neighbors
if they saw my chicken or bunny.

My parents would smile their secret smile and never tell me that my meal
came from my best friend.
They knew I wouldn't eat it. lol

So they let me think it escaped and go on looking for it.
Needless to say, I never found my escaped pet.
I sat and sulked for a while but then thought, maybe they are happy to be free.

You always have to think positive.


Adopted Turtle
Deep within a forest a little turtle began to climb a tree. After hours of effort he reached the top, jumped into the air waving his front legs and crashed to the ground. After recovering, he slowly climbed the tree again, jumped, and fell to the ground.

The turtle tried again and again while a couple of birds sitting on a branch watched his sad efforts. Finally, the female bird turned to her mate.

"Dear," she chirped, "I think it's time to tell him he's adopted."
Bear Advisory
The Forest Service has issued a BEAR WARNING in the national forests for this summer. They're urging everyone to protect themselves by wearing bells and carrying pepper spray.

Campers should be alert for signs of fresh bear activity, and they should be able to tell the difference between Black Bear dung and Grizzy Bear dung.

Black Bear dung is rather small and round. Sometimes you can see fruit seeds and/or squirrel fur in it.

Grizzly Bear dung has bells in it, and smells like pepper spray!

One Talented Hamster
A mangy-lookin' guy goes into a bar and orders a drink. The bartender says "No way. I don't think you can pay for it." The guy says "You're right. I don't have any money, but if I show you something you haven't seen before, will you give me a drink?" The bartender says "Only if what you show me ain't risque." "Deal!" says the guy, as he reaches into his coat pocket and pulls out a hamster. He puts the hamster on the bar and it runs to the end of the bar, down a barstool, across the room, up the piano, jumps on the key board and starts playing Gershwin songs. And the hamster is really good. The bartender says, "You're right. I've never seen anything like that before. That hamster is truly good on the piano." The guy downs the drink and asks the bartender for another. "Money or another miracle else no drink," says the bartender. The guy reaches into his coat again and pulls out a frog. He puts the frog on the bar, and the frog starts to sing. He has a marvelous voice and great pitch, a fine singer. A stranger from the other end of the bar runs over to the guy and offers him $300 for the frog. The guy says "It's a deal." He takes the three hundred and gives the frog to the stranger, who runs out of the bar with it. The bartender says to the guy, "Are you some kind of nut?! You sold a singing frog for $300? It must have been worth millions. You must be crazy!" "Not so," says the guy. "The hamster is also a ventriloquist!"

Have a good one.

One of the problems with growing up on a farm is that we had to help take calves that we had raised to the slaughter house when they grew up. There were no happy illusions.

I enjoyed your stories.

A Lady's Life said...

George That is so sad.
I couldn't do that. I'd have probably stolen them and given them to another person who would keep them Of course I wouldn't get away with it lol
I never did.You can't look at these kind of animals as pets.

I love Penguins. I saw the movie, The March of the Penguins and I cried. Lol

On another note, my next book is titled Poetry and Friendship and once again, all the money goes to the Homeless Shelters.

I'd be honored if you would submit a work of poetry. I'm asking friends and family members to submit one poem. You my friend, have some great stuff to share.

If you're interested, please send me a selection to

The book should be ready by August.

Love for a great day,

Lol Rob Bear - you are the best bear I know. Apart from jokes and all, I love bears and especially our spirit bears here in BC whose land we are trying to save from being polluted by oil companies.
