    I remember when I was a kid there was a $0.50 bounty on 'em, brother and I caught a lot of 'em. Destructive vermin.

    Fable Of The Porcupine


    It was the coldest winter ever. Many animals died because of the cold.

    The porcupines, realizing the situation, decided to group together.

    They were covered and protected, but the quills of each wounded the closest companion. After
    a while, they decided to distance themselves, and they began
    to die, alone and frozen. So they had to make a choice: either accept the quills of their
    companions or disappear from the Earth.

    Wisely, they decided to go back to being together. They learned to live with the little wounds that were caused
    by their close relationships because the most important part was the heat
    that came from the others. They were able to survive.


    The best relationship is not the one that brings together perfect people,
    but the one that forms when individuals learn to live with the imperfections,
    and admire the good qualities of others.

    The Moral Of The Story:
    LEARN TO LOVE THE PRICKS IN YOUR LIFE.

    "Tater", my former scoutmaster, called them "woodman's friends" - the only animal that you could catch and kill without a weapon. He never told us how to clean and cook one without a knife though!

    Funny that you post this . . . went riding yesterday and we had a moose that would not get off the trail despite us waiting and even riding a bit with her running (well loping) in front of us . . . did not want to go off trail . . . finally we had to take advantage of a wide spot on the trail and go by . . . had her turn towards me when I made my first run . . . backed off . . . and then was able to scoot around her.
