A woman from Vancouver , who was a tree hugger and anti-hunter, purchased acres of timberland, near Lake Cowichan , Vancouver Island .

There was a huge tree on one of the highest points in the tract. She wanted to view the natural splendor of her land, so she climbed the tree.

As she neared the top, she encountered a spotted owl. It attacked her! In her haste to escape, the woman slid down the tree to the ground. The ensuing fall incurred several splinters of wood: in her crotch.

In considerable pain, she hurried to the nearest doctor, 35 minutes away, in Duncan. She told him she was an environmentalist and anti-hunter and how she came to receive all of the splinters.

The doctor listened to her story with great patience. He then told her to go into the examining room and he would see if he could help. The impatient patient sat, and sat, and waited for three hours before the doctor reappeared.

The angry woman demanded, "What took you so long?"

He smiled and said, "Well, I had to get permits from Environment Canada, the BC Forest Service and Worksafe BC before I could remove old-growth timber from a recreational area. I'm sorry, but they turned me down."

Dear Patty ~~ Really funny joke ~ it
doesn't pay to be a tree hugger!!!
Thanks so much for your comments, glad you liked the Puppy story, it was new to me. And some of the jokes were good. Did you and your daughter enjoy Dancing with the stars. We have
an Aussie version here. I bet that Vegetable soup helped keep the chill away. I amke Pea and Ham soup in Winter, using a Bacon shank, pkt yellow split peas, onion, bell pepper and carrot and heaps of water. I make mine in my Slow cooker. Yummy, So nice of you to think of the homeless people during
this very cold weather. You have a good heart. Take care, Love, Merle.
