When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

When you guys come up here to visit me in the winter, you'll probably know to watch out for snow snakes and ice lizards, but now you have to be looking around all the time for the Brontospider. I've heard that they can scurry through darn deep snow. Watch out. This one was sighted on the the way to town today.

OI, he's about six miles east of me and there's a deep little creek between us, so I'm fairly safe.
