History with its flickering lamp stumbles along the trail of the past, trying to reconstruct its scenes, to revive its echoes, and kindle with pale gleams the passion of former days. ~Winston Churchill

We've had a pet ocelot and a pet lemur; of course someone thought it was a good idea to have a pet lion. "Blondie" and her family, Graham, Texas, 1955.
