I know it sounds silly, but I am so sad about Croc Hunter
and I can't seem to get it into my head that he's dead. I don't usually have such a sense of loss about celebrities. Maybe it's because my little girls have been watching the Crocodile Hunter/Wiggles video (Wiggly Safari) for the past several years and he seems like a friend. Maybe it's my 6-year-old's endless questions about his death and how sad it must be for his little girl and boy not to have a daddy now etc. Maybe it was his ebullience and love of animals. Maybe it was just that sparkly charisma of his that always made me smile even while shaking my head at some of his antics.
Anyway, just wanted to pay a small tribute to Steve Irwin. G'day, Mate!
