Saturday Morning Reflection #22

Good morning everyone...

As you can see the Blog is right on time today. That means that the "wild" that was welling up inside of me was snowed out. There is always next time.

The work week was fairly uneventful. Nothing major and nothing really all that interesting to report. I suppose I could update you on the ex wife. Oh...wait there is no update because she won't come in and sign the paperwork so that I can get the title to my truck. There is some talk of asking the judge to appoint a special "commisioner" to sign the paperwork. The biggest drawback is that
I would back in court fighting over payment to the "commisioner" for performing a function she is supposed to do. There has also been some discussion as the whether or not she is in violation of the Court Order and if the Judge should issue a warrant and have her to answer that. Nothing solid yet, but stayed tuned for further updates.

Spring is approaching and I am so ready. Fishing, camping, and the great outdoors await. I might try sneaking up to Canada a couple of days this year. I do know that I am headed south for some VACATION.

Teresa...Congrats...and I knew you would like this blog. I hope that all goes well. is one for you...

The Lion and the Mime

One day an out-of-work mime is visiting the zoo and attempts to earn some money as a street performer.

However, as soon as he starts to draw a crowd, the zookeeper grabs him and drags him into his office.

The zookeeper explains to the mime that the zoo's most popular attraction, a gorilla, has died suddenly. The keeper fears that attendance at the zoo will fall off. He offers the mime a job to dress up as the gorilla until they can get another one. The mime accepts.

The next morning, before the crowd arrives, the mime puts on the gorilla suit and enters the cage. He discovers that it's a great job. He can sleep all he wants, play and make fun of people and he draws bigger crowds than he ever did as a mime.

However, eventually the crowds tire of him and he gets bored just swinging on tires. He begins to notice that the people are paying more attention to the lion in the cage next to his.

Not wanting to lose the attention of his audience, he climbs to the top of his cage, crawls across a partition, and dangles from the top to the lion's cage. Of course, this makes the lion furious, but the crowd loves it.

At the end of the day the zookeeper comes and gives the mime a raise for being such a good attraction as a gorilla.

Well, this goes on for some time. The mime keeps taunting the lion, the crowds grow larger, and his salary keeps going up. Then one terrible day when he is dangling over the furious lion, he slips and falls. The mime is terrified. The lion gathers itself and prepares to pounce. The mime is so scared that he begins to run round and round the cage with the lion close behind.

Finally, the mime starts screaming and yelling, "Help, Help me!", but the lion is quick and pounces. The mime soon finds himself flat on his back looking up at the angry lion and the lion says, "Shut up you idiot! Do you want to get us both fired?"

Well, until the next time...please remember that I have to pay the bills
