The Village Idiot

I finally figured out what I want to do with my life. It’s taken 63 years for me to realize where my talents lie. I wish I would have known sooner but some people never realize their potential and I have. I want to be a Village Idiot. Not just a bumbling fool, which at times I am, but the village idiot that sits on the wall or fence and says hello to everyone and waves at all the passing cars.  Let me tell you how I came to this unbelievable discovery. A couple of months ago, after our last … [Read more...]

I’ve read countless articles about how it helps conservation, how the people are glad when a wild animal is killed because of the threat to human and animal life in their village and town but that is also a lot of crap.People here in the … [Read more...]
