Every Tuesday Angela at West Virginia's Treasures gets us together to share animal stories.

These stories can be our own pets or just something interesting about animals Please check her blog out and join us.


“There are two big forces at work, external and internal. We have very little control over external forces such as tornadoes, earthquakes, floods, disasters, illness and pain. What really matters is the internal force. How do I respond to those disasters? Over that I have complete control.” —Leo Buscaglia


“Your assumptions are your windows on the world. Scrub them off every once in a while, or the light won't come in. ”
—Alan Alda

This guy was out hunting and after he shot his elk he set his camera on self timer and took a pic.
He about died when he got home and took a look........


It is kind of funny don't you think? We think we are in control and we really aren't - are we?

Aunt of 14 said...

Oh wow, that would have SCARED me too!

Gaston Studio said...

If he was hunting for just the sake of hunting and not for food, he should have been scared!

You find some great things Sandie!

Changes in the wind said...

Yikes, what a shock I am sure...

Pat MacKenzie said...

Both those guys are lucky to be alive. Those pictures reinforce my determination to stay out of the woods.

varunner said...

Those are some crazy pics!

Knitty said...

If it is amazing to find that we were in danger after the fact, just think how many times we've been in some precarious position and were never made aware of it.

My guardian angel never has a day off. ;-)

That corgi :) said...

wow on both of those pictures!!! I think that's why I don't venture out into the woods too much, LOL :)

have a great Tuesday ;)

Home In The Hollow said...

Sandie...those 2 pics are incredible and even though Joe is a hunter, I love them both...we really are NOT in control, are we???...:)JP

Together We Save said...

Oh wow - those pictures freak me out!!

Ginny said...

Gosh, what scary pictures! And what a cool thing to find and post! This really does show us that even when we think everything is fine, there are dangers lurking that we have no idea of! I think that God protects us many times from these things, and we just have no idea of it!! We sometimes wonder why does this or that have to happen to me? But it might have been a lot worse if not for divine intervention!

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Wow is all I can say! Can't wait to see you tomorow!

BECKY said...

Love the pictures and the quotes!! I always loved Leo Buscaglia. Did you ever see him on TV? He used to be on PBS alot. Such an inspiration. And that Alan Alda, he's such a neat guy!

Melanie said...

Scary pictures!
You're so right, we may think we're in control, but we really aren't.

Angela said...

Wow! They were both lucky they weren't attacked by the other animals around them!

Tuesdays' Show & Tail!
Angela

kim said...

You are right! I have been in two situations dealing with snakes and my dog saved my life twice.I was in the flowerbed two different times and the snakes were there and I didnt see them.

Annesphamily said...

Reminds me of Harry and the Hendersons. It is one of my favorite movies ever! Harry went home with the family and he really taught them some great lessons!
You are always so sweet to me. Pray cause we are coming down to the wire with the house. The owner is taking care of some of the repairs so....we should be able to close Nov 17th unless a major road block comes up! I am excited! Hugs Anne

Jules said...

I've seen the second picture before. I agree totally with the first picture! LOL

Is that quote from a M*A*S*H episode??

Sharon Kirby said...

OK - here's what I learned from this "Show and Tail."

1. Never mess with Mama Bear.

2. Never mess with a cougar...(PUN intended!!)

No, we're really NOT in control. However, I know Someone who is - He's my friend!

GOD BLESS!

Velvet Over Steel said...

I love the quotes, Sandie! & the pictures were 'priceless' to say the least! Great post!!

Hope the rest of your week is Great!
Hugs,
Coreen

The Quintessential Magpie said...

OH, how scary! I can't believe he didn't see that cat there or sense that cat there, but I guess they are stealthy. Boy, I would have freaked had I seen it! And the bear... there have been lots of attacks lately, and frankly, I don't blame the bears. Man has encroached on their territory!

XO,

Sheila :-)

Maureen said...

Whoa! Close call!

Mevely317 said...

What can I say? ... Priceless, 'specially the first one. Can't say I blame "Mama Bear" one little bit! Stupid human - ha!

Walking on Sunshine... said...

Okay, these photos are great! Thanks for the laugh! I love the chicken cartoon. Reminds me of a t-shirt my son has of corn cobs watching popcorn pop in the microwave. Funny.

Homemade Quilts by Granny said...

What a lucky fellow he had a guardian angel watching over him. Trish

Donna B said...

Those were some GREAT pics! Love the quote by Leo Buscaglia. Another thing in common. I have several of his books.

Just Be Real said...
