Jane shares a funny!!
One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside
cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap.
Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up,
and begins to read her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent.
Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, ' Good morning, Ma'am. What are you doing?'
'Reading a book,' she replies, (thinking, 'Isn't that obvious?')
'You're in a Restricted Fishing Area,' he informs her.
'I'm sorry, officer, but I'm not fishing. I'm reading.'
'Yes, but I see you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I'll have to take you in and write you up.'
'If you do that, I'll have to charge you with sexual assault,' says the
'But I haven't even touched you,' says the Game Warden.
'That's true, but you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment.'
'Have a nice day ma'am,' and he left.
MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.
Candis wrote a poem for me!!!
Vincent is a most special cat
See he wears a nice straw hat
If ever a cat won our hearts
It was Vincent from the very start
We will travel to see him one day
Until then, we love him in every way.
American boy, 13, breaks Everest record
A 13-year-old American became the youngest climber to ever summit Mount Everest on Saturday. Jordan Romero's journey was tracked through GPS coordinates on his blog, logging his team's ascent up Everest, which is 29,028 feet (8,847 meters) above sea level.
"Their dreams have now come true," a statement on Jordan's blog said. "Everyone sounded unbelievably happy." Before Saturday, the youngest climber to scale Everest was 16-year-old Temba Tsheri of Nepal.
Before starting out, Romero, of Big Bear, California, said he wanted to climb Everest to inspire more young people to get outdoors. "Obese children are the future of America, the way things are going," he said on April 9 in Kathmandu. "I am hoping to change that by doing what I do: climbing and motivational speaking." With a smile, he added: "I am doing this a little for myself, too, to do something big."
Tabby Adopts Abandoned Baby Bobcats
A gray tabby named Zoe in South Carolina is now nursing three abandoned baby bobcats -- felines that will soon dwarf their adoptive mother and siblings. In about five weeks the bobcats will be moved to a specially built habitat until they can be released back into the wild.

Switzerland Hires “Road Angel” to Prevent Speeding Accidents
In Fribourg, Switzerland, drivers going too fast will get a warning from a real-life angel, thanks to a new campaign.
There are few drivers who can honestly say they’ve never driven above the speed limit. Maybe you’re late for work, or rushing to pick your daughter up from day care, or you’re just distracted. But when you go too fast, accidents are far more likely to happen—and Switzerland’s come up with a novel campaign to remind speeders of the dangers of driving too fast.
In the Swiss state of Fribourg, drivers going above the limit may receive a warning from a real-life angel: a man dressed in white, complete with a set of wings, who waves at drivers who are going too fast. Drivers will likely recognize him as a real-life counterpart to an angel in a safe-driving TV commercial, who is hit by a car pulling out of a garage too quickly. The angel has been hired by the state police department to work 20 hours a week until at least October.
True, the police department could focus their resources on pulling over speeding drivers, but they believe the angel creates a greater impact that they can make on their own. “To have a physical presence like that makes the message more visible, and it’s out of the ordinary,” police spokesman Benoît Dumas told AOL News.
It’s too early to tell if the angel is actually preventing accidents on the dangerous mountain roads, but he’s definitely got people talking. And if the plan goes well, there’s no telling how long the Road Angel may keep guard on Fribourg’s roads.
“After all, you know, angels are eternal,” said Dumas.
