Well, one day I was walking in the Mall in Carson City, NV, to visit my Mom at the radio station she worked at. All of a sudden this big dog comes racing towards me. As it got close enough, I realized it was a lion cub!! He ran straight up to me like we were old friends, jumped and put his huge paws on my shoulders and licked me right up the face!! This guy comes running up as I'm petting Simba and is freaked out that his lion is mauling a young woman. I assured him that wasn't the case. After he got Simba back on his heavy-duty leash, he explained that he was an exotic animal importer and had brought Simba in to the Pet Store in the Mall to show to a potential buyer. The original buyer who ordered a lion cub backed out of the deal. If it's not too late to make a long story short, LaMont (the guy) asked me if I wanted a job. He had a Pet Store/Kennel/Grooming facility in South Lake Tahoe and had just had someone quit on him. I was in a job I hated, so, on the spot, I said yes! Then I found out that the job came with an apartment in the back and that I would be responsible for boarding, grooming, sales, stocking, cleaning and, of course, caring for Simba!! It was the job of a lifetime. After a few months, he still hadn't found a buyer for Simba who was growing out of that 'cute' cub stage and getting big and 'lionish'. So, I signed a contract to have payments taken out of my paychecks and Simba was mine. The a year or so later, California passed the Wild Animal Act and the new rules for big cat enclosures were so strict and expensive, that we were left with no choice but to find a zoo for Simba. I hated it but at the time, animal rescue groups were few and far between. Besides, the Animal Act killed LaMont's import business and he decided to sell out. Everything must go...including me. We finally found a zoo in Ocala FL that could take Simba and let me tell you: putting Simba on that plane was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Man, do I have stories and memories, though. :D

Thanks back for the wishes, ani! Simba was my big boy in 1968 and I used to have lots of pictures of him. Unfortunately, they were in a storage unit, and the facility burned to the ground in 1985. Every time I see a pic or gif of a 2-year-old male lion, I think of him. It was a totally fantastic experience.

Dear Annie, even though you are thousands of miles away it is always making me feel better. Just to know that there is someone that cares, loses a thought about you once in a while and asks how have you been. It is not that I don't have any friends but I don't like to complain to them because they might tell me something I don't want to hear, I guess ... As you said It can't get any more worse ( I hope). So I wait till the painkillers set in and then I will try to do something. I already have managed to unpack two boxes yesterday! So the goal for today is three boxes. Gotta push myself more. I was taking it slow the better part of the last six months. Wasn't I? My condition will get better with more movement, gotta rebuild muscles to support my joints. That is where my pain comes from. Still I'm afraid to go to work. First day will be the 12th...

Medical: Not feeling well, but that is because of the situation I guess, my back hurts because of my new mattress which I bought for the new flat which is now lying on the floor because my bed is broken which is not how it is supposed to be without a supporting frame. A wound I got on my left shin will not close. I had problems with open legs before and that is something I don't want to have again. And still I can't manage to be standing longer than 10 minutes which makes unpacking quite a challenge. Someone kill me please.

My dear Annie, I guess nobody does move for the fun of it! I for myself now remember why I hate it so much: I'm living on a construction site. Nothing is ready, my Kitchen has no water running (but a working dishwasher), my bath was flooded on my first night here, Jessys room is currently a closet for all the moving boxes that I can't unpacked because only one of my wardrobes are here and rebuild again. My kitchen boxes I cant unpack because all the closets an cupboards that are supposed to be wall mounted are standing on the floor taking up space in my living room ... Oh, and my bed broke during transport so I will have to buy a new one witch will cost me about 1000 Euros. "My Guy" that is in charge for all the construction and moving left me here on sunday night and told me then (!!!!!!!!) that he will be on vacation for a week. So the rest of my stuff is still in my old flat while here is nothing happening because everywhere you turn is either a box you can not yet unpack or there is some piece of furniture that needs to be set up again. I used up all my friends "Can you help me please?" so I'm currently kind of stuck here. My medical condition did not kindly improve over the last few days so I was happy when I managed to set up my desk with my PC so I could check up at work. I "parked" Jessy at her Mothers Place for the Moment because I do not know where to put her ... I would realy like to cry and scream about this all but I don't have the power. My mother is coming back from my brothers today or tomorrow so I guess she will help me. And mybe if we start to find some room to operate i can bring in Jessy to help. Or I could kindly ask her Mother if she could help. In Germany it is a real test for a friendship if you ask someone to help with moving because nobody likes to do this. So you better not ask or they might just don't show up ... There were some fireworks but it was all very foggy so not much to see. I'm tired ...
