This short video is amazing and joyful, especially for anyone who has ever loved and been loved by another species!

    What a beautiful story.
I'm a bit dubious about the statement that he's the head of his pride, unless it's a pride of just he and the lioness... His mane is still "juvenile", and that would place him at serious risk from truly adult male lions in the area. But that's not the point, after all.

How wonderful to be remembered and greeted so affectionately by what is now a "wild" creature.
It's a myth-breaker to anyone who's ever referred to other creatures in our world as "dumb animals." Shame on them.

Thank you for this lovely and uplifting link.

I want to be there. In every photograph. And see it for myself.
(Can you see me on my knees under those huge oaks in S. Carolina? I'm a tree worshiper. Or swimming in that cove in Greece? Yes!)

Since I can't, PHOTOGRAPHERS ROCK!

Prayer Request

Saturday, February 22, 2014

My DIL's brother has been diagnosed with cancer of the tonsils!
(He is her only remaining brother. Their younger brother died 2 years ago of various health problems.)

And my DIL herself had breast cancer and a double mastectomy two years ago.

His tonsils were removed a few weeks ago. He has a stint in his arm now, ready for the IV and he will be using a feeding tube.

His radiation will be every day for 7 weeks (That's probably every week day.) and chemo once a week. He won't be able to talk or eat.

He and his wife own and operate a barber shop. It's always voted the Best Barber Shop in town in the yearly contest votes. They have 3 daughters, the youngest is a junior in high school.

His wife must continue working in the shop because that is how they make their living. He says he will work too, but it is doubtful.

He has a long, painful road ahead and needs all the prayer and good thoughts you can send.

My DIL's mother is not in good health and the loss of her younger son was a severe blow to her. This news is more trauma.

A good family with poor health inherited. Please send your prayers.

Thank you,
Karen

    Sending up prayers; that sounds like rough chemo; I've never had chemo any more than once per week, having it daily would be hard. I will keep him in my prayers, and I pray that he has a complete recovery.

See the Kitty catch the Lizard!

Saturday, January 25, 2014

If you live with a cat(s) you know they love to catch lizards! Rosie thinks the poor little geckos are gummy bears. They don't stand a chance.

Remember your feline is a hunter, even when domesticated. Think what they're like in the wild!

    For some reason it's missing a colon after the https when you click it directly but yes, it does work when you cut and paste.

I love my two cats, but ever so often I daydream about what they must look like to the little chipmunks and bunnies in our neighborhood. Absolutely terrifying.

    And my dog loves to catch squirrels - not real happy about that, but she is after all a dog.
