BAD LUCK

You know you're having a bad day when your car is stolen not once, but twice... in the same day.

A Wisconsin man had his 1990 Audi Quattro stolen outside a grocery store while his wife was inside.

The keys had been left in it.

The man, who owns an automotive repair shop, quickly called some friends and they found the car nearby... without keys.

A friend disabled the car's ignition by removing a coil wire while he went to get a spare key.

When he returned the car was gone.

He had forgotten the Audi had a two-coil system and could be driven with just one.

Lesson learned? "Don't leave your keys in the ignition," he said. "And if you find it, do not leave it."

And, yes he found his car... again.

GARAGE CONDOS

So, you've got the Harley, the Jet Ski and the vintage Vette. But where are you going to park those grown-up toys?

How about a garage condo?

GarageTown U-S-A is selling upscale parking spots... prices ranging from 42-grand to 116-thousand dollars.

Facilities are in the works in 20 locations from the Pacific Northwest to Texas and Arizona.

But not everyone needs the space for their pricey wheels... one unit was sold to three guys with a band, because their wives didn't like loud music in their homes.

SLOTH BEAR

An abandoned sloth bear cub in eastern India has found a new home.

The two-year-old cub named Krishna and his mother wandered into this little community... but the baby was left behind.

They've tried to send Krishna home to the forest several times, but the little bear keeps coming back.

Villagers say Krishna is very gentle and has become quite popular with the villagers... and local monkeys.

LEGGY COW

A few months ago we showed little Star, the cow born with two faces.

Star passed away a few weeks later.

Now, a Nebraska farm is showing off its days-old Black Angus calf born with 6 legs.

"He's a real freak" says the cow's owner saying it romps about like any other.

I say "it" because the cow has organs for both sexes.

A specialist says the embryos for what might have been fraternal twins likely fused during development, producing one calf with extra parts.

Such calves are rare... usually plagued with internal problems and don't live long.

But so far the 85-pound calf seems as frisky as the others.
