Leaps and Bounds - Version 2 Description
The tiger is one of the most striking animals on our planet. Despite being a strong and powerful predator, it is an endangered species with not many more than a thousand left in the wild. Peter reports that depression sets in when reading about the plight of our wildlife, so for the inscriptions on ﾓLeaps and Boundsﾔ, he carved some trivia that would make him smile. He included the name ﾓTonyﾔ (theyﾒre grrreat), the advertising icon for Kelloggﾒs Frosted Flakes. ﾓTiggerﾔ ﾖ A.A. Milneﾒs creation and friend of Winnie the Pooh ﾖ receives a nod. Also inscribed is ﾓHobbesﾔ, from the Calvin and Hobbes syndicated cartoon strip by Bill Watterson, and soon to be the subject of a U.S. postage stamp. Another tiger that receives mention ﾖ ﾓMontecoreﾔ ﾖ is the white Siegfried and Roy show stopper that literally brought an end to the Las Vegas extravaganza. Other inscriptions include ﾓStreakﾔ, the name of a group of tigers, and ﾓFebruary 14thﾔ, the start of the Chinese year of the tiger. Open the lid to reveal a fire hydrant and bent golf club, in homage to the worldﾒs most famous tiger.
