Thanks so much for your report. As many have already mentioned the back and forth format was appreciated! What was your favorite part of the trip other than the actual taking of the elephant? What was your least favorite part? Is there anything you would have done differently? Thanks again. In Wisconsin from the shores of Lake Michigan, Brian

No matter how much you beg, no one will let you scoop up a baby goat to take back to camp to bottle feed. (There were plenty of little baby goats but they said no to all of them)

The trick is to pick the goat up when it walks into your tent. ;)

Oh my goodness!!!! I was not that lucky. Only a lizard came into my tent! I tried persuading Matthew. His wife wants a baby goat as well. I offered to bottle feed and love the baby goat until it was time to leave at which time he could then take the baby goat to his wife. It was win-win in my mind. :D
How lucky you are you got to play with one! :)

Oh my goodness! I laughed, I chortled, I loved your story. @Just Gina , I loved your previous report, but you really outdid yourself this time!! So funny. You are unapologetically you and not afraid to let the world know. Michael, excellent writing as well. My hat is off to you for a wonderful report and adventure. Most of all for putting up with your lovely wife. Thank you both for filling my evening with laughter.
:E Rofl: Glad you enjoyed the report! Michael is a really great sport, that's for sure! I do not get to see him much at home so, I only get to pester him on Sunday mornings if I am not at work however, I do wait to pester him until he has slept in. :)

I may grow old, but I refuse to grow up. I wouldn't trade the 'pestering' - playing, for anything in the world. Even when I get grumpy- that beautiful smile with the prettiest dimples in the world, cheer me up right quick. @Just Gina -thank you for making my dreams come true!

I do not know where this video was posted, but I would very much like to see it.

Hello Milan, I just watched your video on disassembling/reassembling the CZ 550. I have spent days looking for something like this. I now have no reservations taking apart my rifle. I like to do this with all my guns so I understand them "inside and out". Thank you very much for the information. It is greatly appreciated.
