I have been an animal lover ever since I can remember, so I guess it is no surprise that I greet every animal I meet. LOL! :) On one occasion that happened several years ago, I was coming out of my apartment building when I startled a squirrel. Before this experience, I had never heard a squirrel "talk", but he sure gave me a good talking to. Actually, I had heard squirrels squawk before, but since I didn't see them at the time when I heard them, I thought I was hearing birds. Now I know the sound a squirrel makes and can identify it. :) Although 99% of my encounters with animals have been positive and enjoyable, there have been a few difficult ones. Like what happened to me a few years ago, before I 'learned the language' of geese. I was strolling in a nature park, minding my own business, or so I thought, and taking photos, including some photos of a pair of Chinese geese. It seems that the gander had warned me that I was too close but I didn't understand, but he made sure I did by attacking me by grabbing my leg with his beak. Fortunately for me it was my jeans he was grabbing but after that experience I learned, the hard way, what he was trying to tell me before he attacked me. "Back off". Needless to say, I now give them a wider berth (more space). :)
I love to cook and I love kitchen gadgets and appliances. I have never owned a pressure cooker, nor do I want one, but I love my slow cooker/crock pot, and I enjoy using it every opportunity I get.
I will keep this short, but I hope you enjoyed reading this, and thank you so much for taking the time to do so. :)
