Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! (Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!)
My wife is right, I am anal retentive...., so now I keep a can of WD-40 next to the toilet! (Sometimes I feel like I'm just a bobble-head on the highway of life!)

The Bear Facts!
I once spent four days in Billings, Montana while I got my car repaired ....., but I never saw so much as one bear!
The incident, which took place on June 19, was caught on video by Peters' wife Valerie.
After leaving the park, the party drove up to Beartooth Highway where they came across some bears, said Peters. As they were stopped, a bear jumped up on a car, and Peters retreated back inside his own vehicle.
Afterwards, Peters came face to face with that bear with its claws on the hood and its face in front of the windshield.
"The bear came over and jumped up (on) the car and just had its way with the car for about five minutes," he recalled.
At first, the bear crawled away, but then it returned and proceeded to the driver’s side window.
“Go away,” a young child said in the video.
The bear continued to touch the car windows and peer inside. Then, according to Peters, the car engine started and the bear ran away.
Peters remembered talking to his friend's 7-year-old daughter, who was pretty excited by the encounter.
"I asked her if she was gonna have nightmares about this whole thing," he said. "She said, 'Are you kidding me? This was the best day of my life ever!' And I thought that was just kind of cute."
A beaver protecting its dam attacked two central Oregon men, who fell into a river and got taken to the hospital.
Bailey says their injuries are not considered life-threatening.
One man quickly climbed out the Deschutes River near Lava Island Falls and sought help for his friend whose clothing got caught on some logs.
The trapped man managed to get out of the water just as a deputy arrived.
Body positivity was on full display Friday on the steps of the New York Public Library as three women had their naked bodies painted in front of lunch-time crowds.
The event was organized by Kimberly Massengill — who goes by the name of Substantia Jones — to mark the eighth anniversary of the Adipositivity Project, which celebrates fat bodies and works to combat sizeism.
She photographs naked, fat people, mostly women, and posts the pictures on her blog to empower and teach people about different sizes.
Massengill collaborated with local artist, Andy Golub, and three models of varying sizes and shapes.
"We're here promoting body love," she said. "I want people to love their bodies and let other people love their bodies."
She said in a news release that the word "fat" should be used whenever possible, as "overweight" imposes judgment and an expectation that there is an acceptable weight limit.
Passers-by were impressed by the women's bravery.
"I think it's amazing; people shouldn't be ashamed of their bodies," said Michal Bezalel, a tourist from Israel.
A man from Pensacola, Fla., was arrested Thursday when police found his mother’s corpse that was on his couch for months, WTSP reports.
A deputy was sent to the residence of 81-year-old Joyce Willis on May 13 to check on her. He smelled a foul odor in the home and discovered her decomposed corpse underneath blankets on the sofa.
Homely hounds compete to be crowned World's Ugliest Dog:
He's overweight and has a birth defect that left him a bit hunchbacked.
Quasi Modo is a 10-year-old pit bull-Dutch shepherd mix who was leading the World's Ugliest Dog contest, with nearly 10,000 votes by Friday. Resembling a hyena or Tasmanian devil, he can unsettle some people, but he makes up for it with a bubbly personality, his biography says.
Quasi Modo was far ahead of No. 2 Morris, a mutt who looks a little like a pig with a spiky haircut and has garnered more than 5,000 votes.
The two are among 27 dogs vying for the title of homeliest hound, which has been given to a pooch in the small California coastal town of Petaluma for decades. Dogs have arrived from as far as Florida, Idaho, Nevada and Arizona to compete in a contest that applauds imperfections.
The winner will receive $1,500 Friday night at the Sonoma-Marin Fairgrounds.
Several of the competitors have been rescued from shelters, puppy mills or abusive homes. This year features a new "spirit award," honoring a dog and owner who have overcome obstacles or are providing service to the community.
