Never discount a mother's intuition a lesson learned off the Cutting Room Floor.
A Michigan woman thought someone had broken into her home and stolen her 5-thousand dollar wedding ring.
But her grandmother already had a suspect in mind the family dog.
Sure enough, x-rays proved her right as the pricey rock was inside the belly of the family's pit bull, Missy.
It made sense since Missy has been caught gnawing on VCRs, electric blankets and even Burlett's diamond earring.
The vet gave Missy some peroxide and out came the ring intact.
A urology center in Nebraska is trying to let people know they have a sense of humor.
So, they're debuting their own interpretation of the 2002 Tony-award winning Broadway musical opened Friday night with songs like..."It's a Privilege to Pee."
The show is about how a terrible drought makes private toilets unthinkable.
So such private activities must be done... for a price... in public amenities controlled by a private corporation, Urine Good Company.
Apparently the theater approached the doctors about sponsoring the production.
HONEST CABBIE 2
Yet another story illustrating the honesty and integrity of cabbies around the country.
Last week, a New York cabbie returned 31 diamond rings left in his car.
Now, a Washington taxi driver returned a wallet containing almost 6,000- dollars by racing to the airport in time to catch the owner.
The owner thanked him with 100-dollars, which the cabbie used to take his family out for dinner.
He says, "My mother always said, 'If you're an honest person, you will always have money in your pocket."
It took a 66-year-old Brazilian grandfather more than 30 minutes to save his 8 year old grandson from the grip of a 16-foot-long anaconda.
The boy was attacked near a creek on his grandfather's ranch while he was playing with friends.
The friends ran to get his grandfather, who battled with the snake until it released his grandson who needed 21 stitches on his chest.
Police say anacondas are not uncommon in the area, but attacks on people are rare.
