Iddee, I ain't ever tried a mouse just yet, how about you?  :-D

BTW, the new frog is blind in one eye, we calling him One Eye Willy. He has quite the voracious appetite. I fed him one of my Dubia roaches (another weird thing I keep) and he ate at least seven super worms in a row. He's gonna be a biggin'!

Got a new African Bullfrog this evening, I think its a male this time! Wish me luck!

Is it weird for a grown man to get excited over purcahsing a new frog to add to his pet collection?

And BTW he eats mice!

Frogs, yes. Mice, no.

So when is the frog leg supper scheduled?

I'll have to ask around to see if I'm labeled " Weird "  ;)

Passions:

Beekeeping
Firearms
Mountain Biking ( more or less just flatland trails now )

Former Passions:

Kayaking
Hiking/Backpacking
Photography
Gardening
Drinking and Chasing Skirts
Softball
Spelunking

I turned 50 not too long ago and suddenly my body can't take the abuse anymore.  :-\

Hopper, I remember some "joke" thing about "when I die I dont want to be laid quietly to rest, I want to skid into the grave sideways with a bottle in one hand and a smoke in the other - screaming 'wooo-hooo! what a ride!'" I wouldn't say you're as worn out as maybe properly applied. I sure don't want to spend my last days wondering if I lived enough in the first place.
be happy and make others happy.

I hear ya !  I still have a lot of Fire and Curiosity in me, when I am feeling less pain, I jump right into the ruff stuff for a day or two, but I know I will pay for it. Maybe it is high time to look into doing "Weird Stuff" for fun.
Hmmm, what can I do that most people think is "Weird"  :?

I know I'm considered odd, that's just fine with me.  I'm a nature girl, I love my garden, I'd rather be face first in the dirt than shopping or any other 'girly' things.  I camp, I love the paddling sports, but don't do either enough anymore.  We've got chickens, we've got bees, my friends have always thought I was nuts - my motto is '┬┐Why be normal┬┐"

You aren't odd.  Just not boringly average.

I have been called a granola eating tofu farting hippie before. Does that count?  We strive to live self sustainably in an urban environment.  I make beer kombucha honey mead our own food and clothes to an extent.  My family thinks we fell off the deep end but I really enjoy not having to live paycheck to paycheck.  Because of all the things we can do, use or barter.  We also follow the ayurvedic lifestyle, but that's normal in some parts of the world.  I think America has a VERY jaded view of normal.  We are urban homesteaders who homeschool our kids!!!!! 8-) :lol: :-D ;)

That may not be normal, but it should be.

I tried that, it makes people laugh  :-D

Anyways, I used to support Merlin Tuttle and his Bat Conservation International Organization and had an interest in their World ( the Bats ) some of my friends thought that was weird. Bats are cool to watch at dusk and they are quite beneficial to us, unfortunately, they're taking a beating right now with the powdered nose syndrome or something like that.

Had to pay for the frog, and males are hard to come by. If you want to eat him, you must ante up some dough.

People always say, "You have a bee on your neck, your arm, your face!" So?

Hunt and eat a growing variety of fungi.

Hunt and eat whatever plants I can find in the woods. 

Hunt and eat fuzzy, cute, and sometimes cuddly woodland creatures.

Have a daily job that makes juggling boxes and frames of thousands of stinging and potentially dangerous insects soothing and enjoyable....so I can eat their honey.

Prefer being/eating outdoors on any day over being inside any day. 

I like to eat, so how is that weird?

Had to call the Vet over the other day for a still birth goat.

He looked at my racing pigeons, the bee hives in  the corner of the orchard, the 2m/70cm ham radiio in my pocket and the 38 pistol on my hip and stated that I had the wierdest collection of hobbies of anyone he's ever met.  Must mean he's not well traveled.  I open carry at home and only polite society would call it concealed at other times.  I believe in using my constitutional rights and in the state of Washington we have a constitutional right to open carry.  To hide it you need a CCP.

I believe I am very "normal" but I am glad that not everyone is, if they were the world would be a very boring place.
I am nobody.  Nobody is perfect.  Therefore, I am perfect.
