Roaring like a lion?


roaring lion at Kruger National Park, South Africa

Is your March coming in like a roaring lion?

March comes in like a lion...
and goes out like a lamb.

That's a saying we have here.
I have no idea where from, I've just always heard it!

I thought today it would be fun to feature some

roaring lions!

These big boys are not happy.
In fact, they look down right grumpy!

But then, sometimes a lion looks like he is roaring,
when actually he is only yawning!!

Or maybe he just has an itch....

"Death was afraid of him
he had the heart of a lion."

- Arabian Proverb

But then again,
maybe he is really just not happy!!
