Kevin and his Cat / Who's the Daddy / HEMA Store..

Kevin and Meg the Lion .....

Hi Folks,

The above photos show Kevin Richardson with Meg the lion ...... in the Crocodile River just south of the Magaliesburg mountains, near Johannesburg , South Africa . Weighing a staggering 185 kg this boisterous tawny lioness playfully splashed around with the veteran of the wild.. Despite her formidable size and strength, Kevin claims he is completely safe in Meg's company. Meg, seven, and her sister Amy, live in The Kingdom Of The White Lion, near Johannesburg . Kevin says Meg is like an 'excited dog going for a ride in a car' when she goes swimming However Kevin's unusual work with these magnificent animals has captured the imagination. 'People are always amazed that she doesn't rip me to pieces with her claws,' Kevin said.'I assure you every now and again I get a claw going into me. It's unintentional and just reconfirms to me how gentle and in control she tries to be. 'You get in and start swimming and the next thing you know there's a full grown lioness beside you doing doggy paddle .... umm I mean ....lion paddle towards you.'
This next one is a bit of a soppy one so...... hankies at the ready !
Who's the Daddy ......... A seminary professor was vacationing with his wife in Gatlinburg, TN. One morning, they were eating breakfast at little restaurant, hoping to enjoy a quiet, family meal. While they were waiting for their food, they noticed a distinguished looking, white-haired man moving from table to table, visiting with the guests. The professor leaned over and whispered to his wife, "I hope he doesn't come over here." But sure enough, the man did come over to their table."Where are you folks from?" he asked in a friendly voice. "Oklahoma," they answered."Great to have you here in Tennessee," the stranger said. "What do you do for a living?""I teach at a seminary," he replied."Oh, so you teach preachers how to preach, do you? Well, I've got a really great story for you." And with that, the gentleman pulled up a chair and sat down at the table with the couple. The professor groaned and thought to himself,
"Great...Just what I need... another preacher story!"The man started, "See that mountain over there? (pointing out the restaurant window).Not far from the base of that mountain, there was a boy born to an unwed mother.He had a hard time growing up, because every place he went, he was always asked the same question, 'Hey boy, Who's your daddy?' Whether he was at school, in the grocery store or drug store, people would ask the same question, 'Who's your daddy?' He would hide at recess and lunch time from other students. He would avoid going in to stores because that question hurt him so bad.
When he was about 12 years old, a new preacher came to his church. He would always go in late and slip out early to avoid hearing the question, 'Who's your daddy?' But one day, the new preacher said the benediction so fast he got caught and had to walk out with the crowd. Just about the time he got to the back door, the new preacher, not knowing anything about him, put his hand on his shoulder and asked him, "Son, who's your daddy?" The whole church got deathly quiet. He could feel every eye in the church looking at him. Now everyone would finally know the answer to the question, 'Who's your daddy."This new preacher, though, sensed the situation around him and using discernment that only the Holy Spirit could give, said the following to that scared little boy. "Wait a minute! I know who you are. I see the family resemblance now. You are a child of God." With that he patted the boy on his shoulder and said, "Boy, you've got a great inheritance. Go and claim it."With that, the boy smiled for the first time in a long time and walked out the door a changed person. He was never the same again. When ever anybody asked him, 'Who's your Daddy?' he'd just tell them, 'I'm a Child of God'."
The distinguished gentleman got up from the table and said, "Isn't that a great story?"The professor agreed that it really was a great story!As the man turned to leave, he said, "You know, if that new preacher hadn't told me that I was one of God's children, I probably never would have amounted to anything!" And he walked away. The seminary professor and his wife were stunned. He called the waitress over and asked her, "Do you know who that man was who just left that was sitting at our table?" The waitress grinned and said, "Of course. Everybody here knows him. That's Ben Hooper. He's the former governor of Tennessee!"~author unknown~ (Note: Mr. Hooper served as Governor of Tennessee from 1911-1915) .
