Dire Wolf

The Missions had a clean up day on Saturday, which meant I worked as a kind of laborer, helping to shovel up debris and hauling off the odd tree branch; it was good to get out with some of the men of the church.

One of them talked about his time as a young man on his parents' ranch in Ontario, where he somehow adopted a timber wolf as a pet. The wolf was loyal and friendly to him, but to no one else.

On Sunday, I said to him, "Good story about the wolf." He replied, "You have to be two things to have a wolf for a pet. In your early 20s and very, very stupid."

I liked that.

God bless,

When I was in my early 20's, I had a Kawasaki 750cc triple cylinder two stroke motorcycle.

Roughly the same stupidity level was involved as having pet wolves.

The nice thing about being in Canada is that you can blame stupidity on brain frostbite.

I hope you stayed on the bike, Fredd!

Brrrr, Jenny.

Just one correction. No ranches in Ontario, they are farms. We only have ranches in the west. I guess it is all about the broad vista, you don't get one in Ontario.

Good point, Julie. Maybe my friend was using local nomenclature!

His parents were big in the Canadian Quarter Horse Association, interestingly.
