Fare Thee Well, Steve Irwin



I come to this post with mixed emotion. While it is a miracle he lived as long as he did putting himself in harm's way far too often, I feel a certain sense of loss as he represents a part of my children's earlier years. OK, the guy was a bit nuts, but I'm thinking he loved the animals. When you compare a crocodile to your wife, I think that is the obvious conclusion.

I'm sorry. I couldn't resist posting this clip. See, he can make you laugh, too.

It's kind of bittersweet right now, isn't it? But still funny ... so thanks for posting it!

This is a classic post... There's really nothing more to say, is there? I hope we all have spouses that are as loved as a 100 year old, cold-blooded reptile aka a killing machine...

Oh my god. Steve and Mary, they're reunited now and forever.

I have produced the same hysterics over the death of my cats. Is there something wrong with me?

Remember Ron Rienstra?

His sister Rachel will be debuting as Ms. Adventure on The Animal Planet in January. She writes about Steve Irwin here:

I'm really sad about Steve. I love complete goofballs like him with unbridled enthusism. I think the world needs more Steve Irwins.
