    I dislike the bloody things with a passion. They put up the alarm when I am sneaking up the back and they shit all around the back yard.

    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    "Rushy " you bloody Bohemian, so much would be missing from our mountains without the lonely, sad' haunting cry of the paradise duck
    as it wings its way up the valley.

    But then they turn several miles up the valley and do a run downstream again effectively clearing all the game off the river flats for miles in both directions and you swear to smash 10 generations of their eggs but you dont because in some strange way you like them.

    Not a single ounce of Czech in my lineage Scribe, however I sense you were not meaning that. And as to parries flying several miles before turning. I wish. Whenever I have a rifle in hand and the intent to sneak up the back of the farm they do tight circles over my head screaming "Beware beware, Rushy has his boom stick" I will admit that it is a bit of a love / hate thing.

    I think the expression might have meant 'Rather coarse fellow' once I dont know. It sounded alright when I wrote it.

    But doesnt that lonely cry of the Paradise duck on dawn up some alphine valley in the South Island sometimes send shivers up your spine 'rushy'

    Geese do the same for me up those valleys. Away in the distance you hear that first honk and the you see that wounderful v formation as they come around the corner following the river and pass overhead.

    and then I think "is all this I see around me really just an accident, are these mountains just remnants of colliding stars and cosmic dust Is that perfect v formation of geese really the result of some primeval soup of elements out of which slithered some primitive single celled creature we called life"??????

    Scribe, I too am a man that marvels at the beauty and splendour in the most simple of things that nature serves for our senses to take in. There have been many times when I have trodden in some remote part of our New Zealand bush and have wondered whether any other human being has had the pleasure of witnessing what lays before me. I am sure I am not the only one to have felt this way and I think that it is an absolute privilege that we all have the ability to see such things.

    I believe that there is a balance in nature and can't help but smile each time I hear the Whio referred to as an endangered species as I have seen these little blue duck so often and just like the Parries they too have an inordinate ability to sound alarm to other ceratures just when you don't want anything to make a noise.

    All a part of lifes great tapestry of which we are but a thread.
