The Editor:   What is a wonder, LL ?

Peace Cat:  Wouldn’t it be a wonder if Trump brought peace to Korea.   Here are the Presidents who couldn’t or wouldn’t–Truman,  Eisenhower,  Kennedy,  Johnson,  Nixon,  Ford,  Carter,  Reagan,  Bush 41,  Clinton,  Bush 43,  and Obama.  Even more amazing, if this happens, Trump will have done it after NOKO developed nuclear weapons.    These are one-fourth of all US Presidents.

Kim might need a new personal plane to get to Switzerland, where he was educated.

Trump should give him one of these and a flight crew to show his good faith/intentions.

Kim Says He’ll Give Up Weapons if U.S. Promises Not to Invade – The New York Times

I can hear the Democrats & Progressives now, if this works out.   They will give credit to Dennis Rodman, the basketball player.  In the meantime let’s hope they can’t sabotage the talks.    Simply amazing.

 

How was I born?

 

A boy was assigned a paper on childbirth and asked his parents, “How was I born?”

“Well, Honey…” said the boy’s mom, “the stork brought you to us.”

“Oh,” said the boy. “Well, how did you and daddy get born?” he asked.

“Oh, the stork brought us too,” chimed in the dad.

“Well how were grandpa and grandma born?” he persisted.

“Well darling, the stork brought them too!” said the mom, by now starting to squirm a little in the Lazy Boy recliner.

Several days later, the boy handed in his paper to the teacher who read with confusion the opening sentence: “This report has been very difficult to write because there hasn’t been a natural childbirth in my family for three generations.”

THE SPHINX—-ANIMALS, AUTISM, & THINGS

The Editor:  What is the story on animals, LL ?

Mutual of Omaha Cat:   Here are some animals that have survived so far, mostly they avoid people.
