Lions, Tigers, and Bears... again!!!

So as I sit here tonight at 10:20, I am replaying my day in my mind: Church this morning, lunch with the in-laws, a short cat nap, watching football, getting bored with football and starting a blog... church this evening, then playing volleyball with friends!! What a great day!! There is a reason for my title though, I am about to explain. My husband has always been an outdoors man, he hunts, he fishes, etc... I've seen my fair share of hunting and fishing shows, because actually hunting isn't enough... we have to watch it on TV too! He has now discovered the National Geographic channel, and we have not one but 2 NatGeo Channels, our DVR is crammed with shows from these channels. Alaska State Troopers, Wild Justice, Boarder Wars... all these shows are about law enforcement in different areas of the country! Then we have the animal shows, which the names escape me right now but they are about aligators, and snakes, lions, and tigers, preditors and prey! I'm not someone that likes to watch animals KILL other animals and really I see nothing entertaining or appealing about it. But "its nature babe" that is what I am told when I complain, so I have since stopped watching the male hippo kill the infant hippo so that the male can sooner mate with the infants mother since she no longer has a baby bacause he killed it! Or earlier when the python was trying to eat an entire alligator...Really? This is something that is fun to watch??!!? I don't get it! Not at all! Good night, and God Bless!

Hi Ashley! You need your first blog comment!

Congrats on the new blog!

Also, as the wife of an outdoorsman, I totally get where you're coming from. I cry when the animals die.
