Leon Tigre

His name is Leon but people call him Leon Tigre and he is very strong. He once pulled up a full-grown water buffalo that fell into a dry well. Strapped rope around its legs and heaved it to safety, yes he did. My aunt, she tells me, he built a house on his own, a whole house with his two bare hands and that he could carry five sacks of rice on his bare back. I think they said he could even carry a tree!

Leon Tigre my aunt’s dad, I haven’t met him but today he is eighty three.
