How did you get it out?
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

 SO much fun! I've got some great video on youtube of me releasing the one I caught. Once in a lifetime experience!
In your hearts enthrone Him; there let Him subdue
All that is not holy, all that is not true
Crown Him as your Captain, in temptations hour
Let His will enthrall you, in it's light and power

Wow!

The American Soldier and Jesus Christ. One died for your freedom, the other for your soul.

Awesome
Too bad you had to release it
Keep the wind in your hair, and the sun at your back.


A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

I'm guessing there was a fair bit of anticipation in the air as you opened the door to release, thanks for sharing!

Very cool!!! Did the cat flat cheese it out of there when the door was open? Or did he take his time and stop and look back?
