Sorry Reisa, I messed it up. Only half the photo came out, and it cut Emeril out. I'll try to edit it tomorrow, and re-submit it. There's a great story surrounding this episode.

Hi Reisa, Hope this photo comes through O.K. I had to teach Emeril how to ride for his Tribute To America Tour. He was really scared, as he had never been on a horse before. The horse he's riding is a line - bred grandson of Mr. San Peppy, of Kinf Ranch fame.

Hi Diana,

Would you start a discussion here about wildlife stories?

Thanks a lot for your invitation. Hope to get in touch with wonderful new stories about wildlife , which is my specialization, and domestic animals too, of course.... :-)

Hi Reisa

Thanks for the invitation. My other family members keep Border Collies so their are always stories at the dinner table about them and their antics.

You know, sometimes the critters get a little pay back. The lovely Maria and I were just minding our own business out for a walk at 9pm last week. We always see a big water bird(cousin of an egret?), as we walk down a city residential street. He is standing in a yard looking for bugs or frogs and flies away as we get close. Well last week I guess he was tired of it and just as we left the house, from the heavens fell an ounce or two of bird deposits to smack me on the shoulder. I truly believe that he hunted me down and fired away.

Hi Carolyn,

I was able to upload pics here. Click on the camera icon in the Toolbar (above the comment box). I'm sure everyone would love to see the photos.

Dan, my daughter recently joined an Episcopal church, she was in attendance on St. Francis Day and called me immediatley afterwards,m they walked the pets and even a full size horse right through the church to be blessed. She said she wasnt worried about the baby making noise it would be heard over the dogs and whinnies! She was absolutley delighted withthe blessing and cant wait for next year. It was the church in Chapel Hill NC if you are wondering. I do lots of animal stories around here they make up a new one every day! The most amazing this week was meeting a miracle my friend has a donkey who gave birth to alive and well twin donkeys and if they arent the cutest little things. Twins in the equine world are extremely rare and John is taking such extreme care that he is exhausted by the responsibility of the twins and their Momma who he has promised the golden handshake and 401 K on her retirement from breeding. She just has a few more months of twin care to get through. I'll post a picture on my page in here as I dont see a place in the animal group itself for a picture. Atlas, Aspen and Mom Emma are a delight I know will be a story to share as their tale plays out.

The Frog Fight of Windham Ct. ( Curbstone Press has it online) is a fun story. Pre revolutions when the residents heard the army marching they took up arms only to find the masses of frogs croaking over a drought drying up the pond. True story! then look online for Windham Frog Bridge ( google) they honor frogs in this neck of the woods! make sure you page down to see the enormous frogs

Can't go wrong with 'The Jumping Frog of Calaveras County'. It's the story that put Mark Twain on the map.
