Here is a money making opportunity! The local government is offering a cash prize to anybody who can remove the tire from the thirteen foot crocodile. He has been wearing it for years.
I don’t know about crocodiles, but I know how my dog felt about his collar.
There is something to be said for advanced middle age. I think back on some of the things I got myself into. Sometimes with malice aforethought. Oftentimes the journey began with the familiar refrain, referenced above, echoing in my head. I am now content to sit up on the porch and watch the big dogs run.
