The Magician and Juggler

My Good Time Stories

Mag and JugThe following story is a cute little story that was shared with me by my buddy Gherlaine…

A Texas State trooper pulled a car over on I-35 about 2 miles south of Waco Texas.

When the trooper asked the driver why he was speeding, the driver said he was a Magician and Juggler and was on his way to Austin Texas to do a show for the Shrine Circus. He didn’t want to be late.

The trooper told the driver he was fascinated by juggling and said if the driver would do a little juggling for him then he wouldn’t give him a ticket. He told the trooper he had sent his equipment ahead and didn’t have anything to juggle. The trooper said he had some flares in the trunk and asked if he could juggle them. The juggler said he could, so the trooper got 5 flares, lit them…

Are human traffickers escorting ISIS terrorists across the Mexican border?

America's Watchtower

  It is now being reported that ISIS has a camp set up in Mexico just a few miles outside the United States border. Here is more:

ISIS is operating a camp just a few miles from El Paso, Texas, according to Judicial Watch sources that include a Mexican Army field grade officer and a Mexican Federal Police Inspector.

The exact location where the terrorist group has established its base is around eight miles from the U.S. border in an area known as “Anapra” situated just west of Ciudad Juárez in the Mexican state of Chihuahua. Another ISIS cell to the west of Ciudad Juárez, in Puerto Palomas, targets the New Mexico towns of Columbus and Deming for easy access to the United States, the same knowledgeable sources confirm.

  But that is not all for it is also being reported that human traffickers, also known as coyotes, are escorting…

Abraham Lincoln Obsessed Over His Dog Just Like You Do

Emilio Cogliani

When he was elected to the White House in 1860, Abraham Lincoln left his beloved dog Fido with friends.

And it turns out Lincoln was like more than a few of us whose pets have run of the house these days: He also left to those friends the dog’s favorite horsehair sofa on which to nap, as well as a long, specific list of rules for how Fido was to be treated during his waking hours. For example, Fido was not to be scolded if he came inside with muddy paws, and he was to be fed from the dinner table.

Lincoln’s attitudes and relationships with animals were in some ways ahead of their time. Matthew Algeo, author of the new book Abe & Fido: Lincoln’s Love of Animals and the Touching Story of His Favorite Canine Companion, paints a picture of Lincoln as a deeply compassionate and…

The Dog in the Polish Village

Untold Animal Stories

ID-10025746 I have no name, but that doesn’t bother me.  What is a name anyway?  I live in the woods near the farmhouse at the edge of the village they call Pierzwin.  The little girl lives in the farmhouse.  She’s small, so small, and toddles when she walks.  She is mine, this I know.  I am hers.  This she knows. The one who doesn’t know is the old woman with whom the girl lives.  The girl must always beg for a scrap of bread for me, which the woman throws far from the farmhouse door, as though this would keep me away from the girl.

When I first saw the little girl playing along the edge of the creek, I knew she was mine to watch over.  She was stooped down looking at a rock, the sun glinting off her flax-colored hair.  I stood downstream, regarding her.  The girl looked up…

Louisiana Animal Shelter is Run By Prison Inmates | Ecorazzi

This should be at every prison throughout the United States and other countries!

Life or Lunch?

dixon-prison-and-dogs-592x399The Pen Pals animal shelter in northern Louisiana is a unique one: it’s run by a prison official and staffed with inmates.

The not-for-profit, no kill shelter is located in on the grounds of Dixon Correctional Center in Jackson, Louisiana. But don’t let its location fool you: the shelter is filled with love and some much needed peace.

“It’s probably the best thing that could have happened to me,” Wylie Vanscoter, an animal lover and former drug addict convicted of armed robbery told People Magazine. “I kinda have found what I was supposed to do in life here.”

The prisoners do everything for the animals seven days a week — from cleaning up their poop to walking them to helping out in operations performed by veterinarians from Louisiana State University.

Pen Pals started in the weeks after Hurricane Katrina, at a time when the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)…
