When I was a young lass, before schooling got a hold of me, I got a hold of an empty tobacco pouch. It looked like it might have come from a pirates treasure chest loot. Deciding that it was definitely a Pirates pouch, I figured I would re-stock it with my grandmothers jewelry. She had some brooches, a couple of hat pins and some other pieces, I don't recall what they might have been. Maybe a scarf or tie clip and pin. Anyway, I "borrowed" the stuff for my treasure pouch and headed out to my secret treasure hideout a ways up the holler in back of the house. I had just dug up and counted my other treasure loot, and buried them along with my new treasure pouch (filled with my beloved grandothers jewelry) under a moss covered log. I got off my knees and turned a little sideways to see a mountain lion as big as our neighbors oval washtub, staring me full in the face. It was several trees over, but on the ground and out in the open. The cat wasn't moving and neither was I. Frozen, my heart was racing, but I couldn't move. It seemed like an eternity, before the cat turned its gaze from me and slowly crept down the slope.

Now this happened quite some decades ago, but I would bet my grandmother's borrowed treasure there's mountain lions in them thar hills.

She also thought a Horse Turd was a Walnut until she cracked it and a Grub Worm jumped out on her.
