Have I ever told YOU, yes you who are reading these words that, without all of you, and your comments, and your contributions, and your photographs, there is no way that, because I am no longer traveling here and there around the world gathering up “Those Adventures” to write about, this website would simply cease to exist.

Today’s Guest Contributor Nicky over in Hong Kong who sent me the below.

💜 When Forest Gump died and went up to Heaven, he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter said, “Welcome, Forest. We’ve heard a lot about you.” He continued, “Unfortunately, it’s getting pretty crowded up here and we find that we now have to give people an entrance examination before we let them in.”

“Okay,” said Forest. “I hope it’s not too hard. I’ve already been through a few tests. My Momma used to say, ‘Life is like a final exam. It’s hard.’ “

“Yes, Forest, I know. But this test is only three questions. Here they are.”

1) Which two days of the week begin with the letter ‘T’?”
2) How many seconds are in a year?
3) What is God’s first name?

“Well, St. Peter,” said Forest, “The first one is easy. Which two days of the week begin with the letter ‘T’? Today and Tomorrow.”

St. Peter looked surprised and said, “Well, that wasn’t the answer I was looking for, but you have a point. I will give you credit for that answer Forest.”

“The next question,” said St. Peter, “Forest, how many seconds are there in a year?”

Forest snapped back “There are twelve seconds in a year St. Peter!”
“Twelve?” said St. Peter, surprised and confused.
“Yes, sir. January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd …”
St. Peter interrupted him. “I see what you mean. I’ll have to give you credit for that one, too.”

“And the last question,” said St Peter, “What is God’s first name?  Again Forest snapped back saying, “St. Peter God’s first name is Andy!”

“Andy?” said St. Peter, in shock. “How did you come up with ‘Andy’?”

“I learned it in church St. Peter. We used to sing about it.” Forest broke into song, “Andy walks with me, Andy talks with me, Andy tells me I am His own.”

St. Peter opened the gates to heaven and said, “Run, Forest, Run!”

Forbes Magazine Wildlife Photos.

I can’t believe it. It’s now been over two full weeks since I last posted some of the Forbes Magazine Wildlife Photos! I find a resource like this and, like a good Squirrel does with his stash of nuts, I “Squirrel Away A Resource To Have Available In The Future!!”

Let’s begin with the very beginning photo, THE photo that led me into the world of Forbes Magazine Wildlife Photos.

How on earth could I NOT click onto you !
