Mother Nature has a sense of humour


This tomato wanted to be a duck

A carrot-shaped robot

A turnip that wanted to be a pin-up

A gourd-shaped duck

 A carrot-shaped hand 


 A carrot and a turnip that think they are human


A foot-shaped potato 


A strawberry in Bear Form


A turnip that wanted to run a marathon


A potato  chicken


A gourd-shaped duck 

Peppers that think they are zombies


A demonic onion


An eggplant that dreamed of being human


A mouse-shaped potato


A potato that wanted to be a Bear


Mother Nature has a sense of humour--real neat!

Die seën van 'n bejaarde

Geseënd is jy, as jy verstaan
dat my hande bewe
en my voete stadig geword het.

Geseënd is jy, as jy daaraan dink
dat my ore nie meer goed kan hoor nie.

Geseënd is jy, as jy weet
dat my oë nie meer goed kan sien nie,
as jy nie kwaad word
as ek die mooiste koppie laat val
of omdat ek vir die soveelste maal
dieselfde storie vertel nie.

Geseënd is jy, as jy my toelag
en my vra na die dae van my jeug.

Geseënd is jy, as jy sagkens met my omgaan,
my stille trane begryp
en my laat voel dat iemand vir my omgee.

Geseënd is jy, as jy langer by my bly
as dit oral donker word
en as jy my hand vashou
wanneer ek alleen die nag moet in,
die nag van die dood.

Geseënd is jy -
as ek in die hemel kom
sal ek die sterre vir jou aansteek.

Best friends




This is Leo the African Lion, Baloo the Black Bear, and Shere Khan the Bengal Tiger.

The threesome were rescued as babies from the basement of an Atlanta drug dealer’s home when it was raided by authorities.

They were starving, traumatized and had bacterial infections.

Since then, they were brought to Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary

… where they’ve lived in the same habitat together for 13 years.

The only time the three were separated was when Baloo was sent to surgery. [While at the drug dealer’s home, Baloo had been mistreated so profoundly that the harness that was put on him had grown into his skin.]

The two cats were distraught and cried for the bear’s return when he was at the vet’s. Since then no one has separated the group.

They clearly bonded during their earliest memories and never wanted to be apart.

Now they live together as if they were brothers of the same species.

They play together, nuzzle one another and are extremely affectionate.

The threesome are the only lion, tiger and bear living together in the world.

They’re just that exceptional.

Humans could really learn from the bond that these three have.

No one ever told them they couldn’t love one another, so they did just that.

And now, even all these years later, they continue to do so.

The trio are affectionately referred to as BLT, standing for bear, lion, and tiger. They might just be the most adorable sandwich ever!








A neat story!  Too bad that most of the news stories we hear do not have a happy ending.


   Went Fishing, Caught 4  Deer 
A once in the history of  mankind kind of thing. The Best Day Of Fishing Ever! Some fishing  stories are a little  
hard to believe but this  guy has pictures to prove his story... I've heard of salmon jumping  into boats, but 
never anything quite  like this... Tom Satre told the Sitka Gazette that he was out with a charter group  on 
his 62-foot fishing  vessel when four juvenile black-tailed deer swam directly toward his  boat.  

"Once the deer reached  the boat, the four began to circle the boat, looking directly at us.  We 
could tell right away  that the young bucks were distressed. I opened up my back gate and  we 
helped the typically  skittish and absolutely wild animals onto the  boat. In all my years fishing,  
I've never seen anything  quite like it! Once on board, they collapsed with exhaustion,  shivering."   

"This is a picture I  took of the rescued bucks on the back of my boat, the Alaska Quest.  We headed 
for  Taku Harbour.  Once we reached the dock, the  first buck that we had pulled from the water  
hopped onto the dock,  looked back as if to say 'thank you' and disappeared into the  forest. After 
a bit of  prodding and assistance, two more followed,  but the smallest deer needed a little more  help.

This is me carrying the  little guy. 

My daughter,  Anna, and son, Tim, helped the last buck to its feet.  We didn't know how long they  
had been in the icy  waters or if there had been others who did not survive. My daughter  later told 
me that the experience  was something that she would never forget, and I suspect the deer  felt the 
same way as well!"  .................I told you! Awesome!
