“Dolf, I had a suspicion that you couldn’t handle that double-barreled shotgun at that tender age”
I said earlier I was probably 5 or so, but having a second thought I probably was like 4-5.
Fired that shotgun for the first time when I was probably 10-12, under my father’s supervision of course. Had such a strong recoil that even at 10-12 I really felt it like a horse kick!… lol…
“You do look very business-like in the photo!”
Lol… I changed quite a lot since then… If I posted a pic of me right now you wouldn’t believe it was the same person… 🙂
“I’m with you – no interest in having critters like that, big or small.”
Thank you for your support 😉 Glad I’m not alone on this 😉
I know currently there are people who like reptiles, many even have them as “pets”, or in terrariums…
I always feel my flesh creep, a shiver, each time I go into a pets store and they have those terrariums full of snakes and spiders of all shapes, colors and sizes… It really makes me feel very uncomfortable, that’s for sure!
Everything that crawls… is creepy IMO…
“But they’re somewhat interesting to learn about.”
Yes, sure, we can learn from everything, but… do we really need to learn everything?… 😉
I know there are things I’m simply not interested in learning about 😉
As for wild life, there are so many more interesting creatures out there IMO.
