Read message below and look at still photo before watching video.
This is a still photo. The second attachment is a video. There's no sound, but look at the picture first and then watch the video. These 2 guys reared this lion from a baby in England but the authorities would not allow them to keep it once it reached maturity so they were forced to give it up, they took it back to Africa and placed it in a wildlife sanctuary, a year later they went to see it and were told it would not remember them.

Well after 5 weeks my parents are finally coming home from their vacation in Arizona. They’ve been traveling all around Arizona visiting with family and friends. Enjoying the wonderfully warmer, sunny weather that blesses Arizona during the winter months.
However, it’s been a little difficult for Amira as she doesn’t understand why Grandma and Grandpa always have to go on “cation”. I told her it’s a benefit to being retired, to which she just looks at me with that puzzled look on her face like I’m speaking “Spanish”. For Amira if she doesn’t understand what someone is saying or a particular word she’ll call it Spanish………LOL
Anyway, I told Amira last night while I was cooking dinner for us that Grandma and Grandpa were finally on their way home and would arrive sometime today. In the mist of concentrating on cooking our dinner I could hear Amira over my shoulder doing something. When I finally turned around I found the table filled with food, containers and Ziploc baggies. I asked what she was doing to which she told me that she was getting food ready for Grandma and Grandpa. She had packed two storage containers with equal amounts of cheese shaped like Mickey Mouse along with two tomatoes, two apples and two Ziploc baggies with a pickle slice in each bag. She so proudly packed them up already for deliver today. I smiled at this sight with tears welling in my eyes at all the hard work and thought she put into welcoming her long lost grandparents.
Needless to say during a break today I called my parents to see if they made it home and pleasantly mom answered the phone….whew! (As an aside, you can rest assured that if they hadn’t arrived home today Amira would have us on the road, driving to wherever Grandma and Grandpa might be between Arizona and California to take their care package to them.) :-)
I can hardly wait for this reunion tonight as I’m not sure who misses whom more, Amira or her Grandparents.

Why do we press harder on a remote control when we know the batteries are getting dead?
Why do banks charge a fee on 'insufficient funds' when they know there is not enough money?
Why does someone believe you when you say there are four billion stars, but check when you say the paint is wet?
Why do they use sterilized needles for death by lethal injection?
Why do Kamikaze pilots wear helmets?
If people evolved from apes, why are there still apes?
Why is it that no matter what color bubble bath you use the bubbles are always white?
Why do people constantly return to the refrigerator with hopes that something new to eat will have materialized?
Why do people keep running over a string a dozen times with their vacuum cleaner, then reach down, pick it up, examine it, then put it down to give the va cuum one more chance?
Why don't you ever hear father-in-law jokes?
The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.
