    Just spent a week in Canada with noted singer Ken Walker. He also dabbles in taxidermy. Here's a couple of giant Black Bears he did for a museum. Cute little buggers.



    Never did get used to driving a car KPH. The sneaky suckers have cameras to catch you speeding. Hopefully I don't get a letter from alberta in a couple months. If I drove 110kph down here Id get run off the freeway.

    Do bears lie down with their back legs out like that? If so, I think Betty is part bear. Even her head looks a little like a bear head.
    Carcass cast, I assume?

    I have seen adult bears lying down like that. They look like they are swimming on land, only stationary.

    On the dark side of my Canadian trip was a serious run in with LBGT. That stands for lesbian, gay or transgender Tick. One of those Canadian buggers made its way into my nether region and Attacked MR Johnson. Nothing is more frightening than an exploded tick in your skivvies. He must've hit a main vein and exploded. I have a woman Dr and was dreading having to go see her. it appears now that won't be necessary.
    I know this is TMI, just a warning to travelers.

    Catatonic and drooling? Are you sure it isn't from the foam you're using?
