Raised by a bear who in turn was raised by an alcoholic Russian, I had an interesting childhood which makes it sometimes difficult to relate to humans who were raised by humans. I like a myriad of things which, when put together, no one else likes. This is the place where I try to explain myself in words. It may not work. I do not apologize.
And, my advice to you: take your friends to parties, but don't let parties take your friends.

Two educational postcards reminding the children about the road rules. Artist M. Fuks, 1975-1976

The first card also has a poem on back (even if no one is marked as author):

See, kes kord tänava seadusi teab,
enam naljalt ohtu ei satu.
Miilitsasaua ees peatuma peab
autojuht, olgu kui ohjeldamatu.

Lion, Tiger And Bear Raised Together After Rescue From Drug Dealer

Baloo the bear, Leo the lion, and Shere Khan the tiger were found locked in a basement undernourished and abused. The trio was originally owned by a drug dealer who didn’t properly care for them, leading to neglect and poor health. In 2001, Noah’s Ark Animal Sanctuary, a nonprofit that cares for animals in need, came to the rescue, and took them to Locust Grove, Georgia, where they were treated for injuries. They could have been separated but since at the moment of the rescue they were already friends, the sanctuary decided to keep them together. The abuse they suffered together as babies has bonded them into a loving brotherhood that does not recognize species.

Oh man.

The world is too much for me. TOO MUCH.

This is a temperature gauge in the boiler room between Hangars 3 and 4 at Floyd Bennett Field, New York City’s first municipal airport.  Opened in 1930, the airport was the starting point for a number of notable events, including record-breaking flights from aviators such as Amelia Earhart, John Glenn, and Howard Hughes.  Perhaps the best-known story from the airfield was that of Douglas “Wrong Way” Corrigan - a pilot who was denied permission to fly to Ireland, but “accidentally” flew over the Atlantic on a flight booked for California - he and his plane were sent back to America by boat.  Floyd Bennett field was decommissioned and abandoned in 1970.
