Past times

i used to chase tumbleweeds and catch snakes and lizards as a kid.


No tumble weeds around here…

Unfortunately the reptiles (turtles aside) that I had didn’t take to domestication very well and perished in their shoe boxes or large bottles that I had made for them.

Only caught one lizard… lizards are cool

I can only stand dogs if they’re the old and relaxed quiet kind.

What breed is that? That a basset hound?

As a child I used to play with snails and race them.


Thats awesome!
How did you get them to do that?

One time when I was in grade school a friend and I were out in the countryside. We turned over a piece of corrugated tin, and there was a huge bed of scorpions under it. There must have been a hundred of them or more. We caught a bunch of them and took them to school. Someone had the bright idea of putting a little snake in the aquarium in which we kept them. The snake was getting bit by them occasionally. We were some mean little twerps. Our fifth grade teacher took the snake out because she didn’t want to have to watch it fighting to get out of our container.

They didn’t really race as the slithered everywhere. I’d put them on a plank of wood.
