Rest in Peace Steve Irwin


Such sad news. One of the greatest zoologists of our time died today in a freak accident after being pierced by a stingray while filming in the Great Barrier Reef. Steve Irwin, the great "Crocodile Hunter," is now gone leaving his wife, daughter and son. I wish I could muster up a "Crickey" as he would say, but my heart just isn't in it. God bless his soul and his family.

i know what you mean... so so so sad... and i feel so sad for his beautiful wife and adorable children! i would have never guessed in a million years that a stingray would have killed him with all the crazy stuff he's done!
i've swam with the stingrays in grand cayman and it was wonderful! they're so beautiful and elegant and soft!!!!

he was a "wild one" and never tamed. many will say otherwise, but for the sake of his wife, i hope they hold their tongues, and settle on " He went too early, he leaves a void, he was one of a kind!" Safe voyage Steve.

Darlin' you've got spam. Delete those scoundrels!! ;)

It's terribly sad and so ironic. After all that really dangerous stuff he died doing something relatively safe. I guess it gives us all the old wake up call. When it's your time, it's your time.

I love the pic you posted, WFW. Doesn't his little girl look just like her daddy???

Hope all is well with you (and your mama). Take good care.

WFW: jus heard about that guy. I guess when you are on critter's turf you have to respect the unexpected. Two weeks ago I had to do in a copperhead that was about 75 feet from the house. Didn't want to do it but was afraid one of my dogs might get bit. I never kill snakes except poisonous ones. Problem is, the snakes just lie there (sometimes in the grass) and before you know it, you've stepped on them. Don't know why but many harmless snakes seem to get out of the way (blue racers really get out of the way), such as king snakes and bull snakes.
Anywho sorry about that guy but I'll bet he willingly accepted the risks he knew were in his line of work. Got to go, UPS driver jus drove up in the yard. Old Baldy
