    You won't be disappointed.

  5. Bait! ….. Weird food local to you that should lure people in.

    What great things to eat to you have in your area?

    Dude!

    OTOH, they just should have stayed still. After all, the orcas were making a Facebook video and needed to get close.

    I know this is a common thing, but can y'all just give the the quick, once-and-for-all cure?

    Lazy, somewhat arthritic (but expensively Adequan-ed) fat cat probably can't reach his back to groom. ...
