    Owls are very impressive to begin with as far as predation goes. And they can fish, too? Wow!

    Hey now Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Comic Fans. Here’s some more hospital humor for you guys!A couple went to the hospital to have their baby delivered. Upon their arrival the doctor said the hospital now had a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother’s labor pain to the father. He asked if they were willing to try it. They were both very much in favor of it. The doctor set the pain transfer to 10% for starters, explaining that even 10% was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before. But, as the labor progressed, the husband felt fine and asked the doctor to go ahead and kick it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20% pain transfer. The husband was still doing fine. The doctor checked the husband’s blood pressure and other vitals and was amazed at how well he was doing. At this point they decided to try for 50%. The husband continued to feel fine. Since the pain transfer was also helping out the wife considerably, the husband encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her husband were ecstatic. When they got home, the mailman was dead on the porch.BA DUMP BUMP! and Silver Out.

    Did they have anyone controlling whether the balloon was going up or down?

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    For anyone curious about the lifespan of hawks (or was that just my first thought?): Rufus took over for Hamish, and has been a professional “bird scarer” for 15 years. He (and his owner) have also helped scare birds away from a number of other sites, including Westminster Abbey.

    What could possibly go wrong at a baseball game populated by pigeons if the two hawks weren’t around?

    Most birds can swim. Non-aquatic birds use a rough version of the butterfly stroke.

    Owls are predators and carrion eaters. As a result of people poisoning rats with warfarin, Owls are dying from eating the dead and dying rodents. Not sure if there’s a solution yet, but public awareness is always a starting point.

    The wife and I rescued a puppy awhile back and not long after that she came home with a kitten.

    Now these two critters have got a lot of toys that get scattered all over the house.

    There’s not a day that goes by that I’m not pulling toys out from under the couch, chairs, or the table.

    I was getting ready to take a shower when the wife ask if I would get Lucy’s (the puppy) favorite toy out from under the couch.

    Now I’m in my mid 60’s and it’s easy for me to get down, just not get up in a hurry.

    I get down on all fours and start digging under the couch.

    (Y’all remember I was getting ready to take a shower.)

    Needles to say, Matilda (the kitten) sees a new toy to play with.

    After awhile I come to laying on the floor under the coffee table to my Loving Wife laughing hysterically.

    That is the last time I will EVER dig a toy out from under anything before I take a shower.
