My favorites this month are the dog and cat interactions, the owls, the stunts from silent movies, and the wonderful short cartoon.

Buster Keaton was an amazing guy who did his own stunts - and some of his stunts were the inspiration for some of Jackie Chan’s stunts much later

Yes, his stunts are terrific, especially without all the safety precautions we take today. Getting the timing just right, such as with those railroad ties or landing in the right place at the right time, is phenominal.

You're welcome, Kickaha! CJ is one of my favorite game makers and a great guy besides.

By the way, the owl with the Santa hat is a real hoot! (Pun definitely intended.) :D
