Interesting about hippos......
Here are some fascinating facts about Hippos:
1.Hippos can’t swim or float! They walk or stand on surfaces below the water like sandbanks. Even so, they spend most of the day in water to protect their sensitive skin from the sun.
2.Although hippos can hold their breath for approximately seven minutes, most adult hippos resurface every three to five minutes to breathe. This is an automatic process – even sleeping hippo surface to breathe without waking.
3.A hippo can live for up to 40 years.
4.The hippo is considered one of the most dangerous animals in Africa and it is highly aggressive, particularly if you get between it and the water. Their canine teeth (sharp teeth) are used for fighting.
5.The hippopotamus is the third largest land mammal after the elephant and white rhino.
6.The hippo’s closest living relatives are whales and porpoises! Now you know!

Later I went into town, post office for package and market for groceries. I had a GREAT conversation with a lady at the post office while we waited in line. Came home and put away groceries and figured out what to have for dinner...
It ended up being rice with peas (cooked together in my rice cooker) and an Omaha Steaks marinated salmon filet (370º for 12 minutes in the Air Fryer), and some peeled baby carrots. Dessert was a piece of Schwans cheesecake! OMGOOOOD!
Then, as you know, it was chair, wine, Bruiser, and TV.
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.
