    As some of you know im on vacation in Clearwater Beach Florida. Today we went to the aquarium here, its actually a rescue place for sea animals. They have a Dolphin named Winter, he lost his tail by being caught in a crab trap. They think he was playing with the float and got caught in the rope. A company that im familiar with called Hanger, they make prostetic limbs made a tail fin for Winter. Now they have just finished making a motion picture about him. We had such a great time, ill add pictures soon.

    the 1st picture is of 2 people doing physical theropy on Winter. Their thinking is message his spine/tailbone and it will elongate helping him me able to swim better. The second is Winter and whats left of his tale. The 3rd is B-man holding Winters actuall fin made by Hanger, its quite interesting. I "played" with it for a few minutes, all the thought that making it and all the moving parts. Its was quite inpresive, they really did an awesome job.
