In keeping with the Saving Tomorrow┬átheme Steven Fritchie took a trip to La Brea Tar Pits (Los Angeles California) this week to get photos of some of the animals that have been found there. They include the giant sloth, prehistorical bear, Dire Wolf (yes they are real) and of course the sabre tooth cat. There were other animals as well. Alas, some of the photos didn’t turn out. You see, Steven was so overcome with oxygen his vision blurred, and the fact that he didn’t practice taking photos with his new camera first created a blur… of activity.

Steven made the effort and that is what counts. I don’t care if someone sat on your birthday cake, because someone else thought enough of you to make the cake in the first place. Thank you Steven for your effort! Steven also sent a photo of a old wise man in a cave. I did not post that.

Mammoth in Tar Pit. I wonder how many humans have been found in it.

      Yes Paul, many of us would have died if not for dogs. Those were babies getting milk! Remember uncle was born in a kennel and raised by a dog, so were hundreds of others through history. We just weren’t as lucky!

  2. Didn’t you get the Mammoths in the tar pit picture? I’ll send it again. From the old man in the cave. :p

      Are you telling me YOU were the old wise man in the cave?
