"How hot is it in Texas now?]
The orangutan found a new reason to live and each always tries his best to be a good companion to his new found friend. They are together 24 hours a day in all their activities.
They live in Northern California where swimming is their favorite past time, although Roscoe (the orangutan) is a little afraid of the water and needs his friend's help to swim.
Together they have discovered the joy and laughter in life and the value of friendship.
They have found more than a friendly shoulder to lean on.
Long Live Friendship!!!!!!!
I don't know......some say life is too short, others say it is too long, but I know that nothing that we do makes sense if we don't touch the hearts of others.......while it lasts!

ON THE WAGON
Which used to have gallows adjacent. Prisoners were taken to the gallows -- after a fair trial, of course -- to be hung.
The horse drawn dray carting the prisoner was accompanied by an armed guard, who would stop the dray outside the pub and ask the prisoner if he would like ONE LAST DRINK.
If he said YES it was referred to as ONE FOR THE ROAD.
If he declined, that prisoner was ON THE WAGON..
So there you go.
They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & sold to the tannery. If you had to do this to survive you were PISS POOR. But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't even afford to buy a pot. They DIDN'T HAVE A POT TO PISS IN & were the lowest of the low.
And that's the truth. Now, who ever said history was boring?
