Silly Saturday - Best Duct Tape Story Ever!

My dad sent this to me in an email, so I'm not sure if it's actually a true account or not, but it is entertaining...

During a private "fly-in" fishing excursion in the Alaskan wilderness, the chartered pilot and fishermen left a cooler and bait in the plane.  And a bear smelled it.  This is what he did to the plane:









The pilot used his radio and had another pilot bring him 2 new tires, 3 cases of duct tape, and a supply of sheet plastic.  He patched the plane together, and FLEW IT HOME !

I believe it. My friend was a forest ranger at a national park. Every day he saw the raw power of bears. He also wanted to kill the people who walked up to the bears and tried to feed them or pet them. Um, hello, it's a wild animal...

Here this Ozarks farm chick thought I'd used duct tape in every way. As a Special Ed instructor I used to keep a roll sittin' on my desk at all times as a joke! Heeeheehe! This use has just amazed me.

From the hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa, ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day!!!
