Mom would go to the "Big city" a couple times per month to get her hair done. I'd go to the coin-op laundry and start a few machines, then go to the local library. There I discovered the hunting section & read EVERYTHING there was to read on all hunting but especially Africa. TR Roosevelt, Karamojo Bell, Hunter, Ruark, Patterson, & Capstick were my entertainment & "friends".
Fast forward to college. I went to a teacher's college where the ratio of males to females was about 3:1. I did OK:p with "the Right ones". In fact, I cut a pretty wide swath at times.:rolleyes:
Now at 15, I'd only had a couple of years to develop the desire for girls. BUT, I've had 40+ years to develop the desire for the Dark Continent.
Shallom, I can't take gin....Safari Chick....tequilla, NEVER again. I'm dangerous as a wounded leopard on that stuff. But, gve me a 1/5th of GOOD Irish wiskey and I'll just dream all night about DG charges...which is better than what I dreamed about @ 15:D
