LIONS AND BANANAS--OH MY!


Clipped from our local newspaper.  This happened just a few miles away.
Nothing more was added to the photo. 
Not  even a reason for the wrong spelling of pole.
  We'll just have to guess the rest of the story.


DH and I went out to eat at a restaurant that features sushi.  
Even though the menu was well written, 
none of the raw fish entrees sounded good enough to eat to either of us.
DH ordered a burger with fries and liked it a lot.  I decided to go with
"Life's short, eat dessert first," and asked for the tempura bananas.
"Bananas dipped in tempura batter and fried to a golden crisp,
dredged in cinnamon and sugar, topped with caramel sauce, 
whipped cream, cherry and a side of vanilla ice cream."
I thoroughly enjoyed it.  The only thing I would change
is perhaps a drizzling of chocolate syrup.

GOOD CALL! Yup life is short thought you could never convince a teenager of that fact...I remember...
I feel so sorry for that big kitty stuck up there with , most likely , guns below...

Oh, poor cougar! I hope it got down safely.

A burger at a sushi place? I think I'd have gone to a burger place at that point. Of course you'd have missed eating that fried banana! Chocolate makes everything better.

The red cherry is similar to the lion on a power pole. Special symbol(*^m^*) !

You should write a letter to the Editor and asked the "who, what, when, why, and where" that should have been provided. I wanna know how it got down!

Sushi? I'd take the burger, too.

Cool shot of the lion. Scary. I love your theory eat dessert first or in my case only. That looks delicious. Now I am hungry thanks. B

WOW
that made me laugh.

That is a very traditional Japanese dish, you know.

How did the mountain lion get down?

Bananas and whipped cream - what could be better! Scrumptious! I love that you ordered dessert first, Leenie!
