Lion Safari (Video)-Throwback Thursday

Ben and I made this hunting video parody way back in 2008 in our backyard.  After making a couple of similar spoofs we actually filmed several “GTC Outdoors” videos that featured real hunting/fishing.

Jerry Lartin is a subtle spoof from one of the personalities in Bass Pro Shops hunting videos, Jerry Martin (see him in the video below.)  The Okavango Delta is a real place in Botswana that features a large game preserve.

The bloopers at the end kind of poked fun at some things you usually won’t see in perfectly-edited hunting shows.  (Such as leaving a gun on safety, missing a shot, or your cameraman falling down.)

The dog/lion was Gideon – our golden retriever who died in 2010.

Six Skunks Shot

July 16, 2014 – My brothers have been asked by neighbors to get rid of some of the skunk population, because they’ve been pestering their animals.  Tonight they did just that!

By the way…don't think that you can get ever get THAT close to SO MANY skunks without having some major olfactory complications...and possibly never let indoors again.

An Independence Day “Ship’s Cook”(Video)

July 4th, 2014 -  I know that many of you have enjoyed the nearly-90 dancing videos that I’ve posted on this blog over the years…so I hope you enjoy the one below!

Unfortunately, my camera didn’t capture some of the guys doing some epic breakdancing “helicopters” off-screen during the gentleman’s “turn.”

Creation Museum

4102 ,ht5 rebmevoN – That’s really weird…my keyboard was typing from right to left.  Maybe the first photo made it think that it was writing a reflection!

Moving on… on Nov. 5th, 2013 we visited the Creation Museum on the way home from the Worship of God Conference in NC.  <-Click here to check out posts from rest of the trip.

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
This kid was playing in the water the last time we were here, too.
 
 
 
Looks like Noah’s cooking and brewing has really branched out in the last few years.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We have spent SO many hours in this bookstore…
 
 
 
…A LOT of hours…
 
 
 
…but for some reason, I never noticed Proto!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Heading outside to the gardens
 
 
It’s always cool to come to the museum at different times of the year, because the gardens look different each season.
 
 
We’ve never been here during the winter
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
They added a new zipline and obstacle courses
 
 
 
 
 
Might have to try these out sometime
