 I found a copy of Steve's last documentary Oceans Deadliest at the library.  I had not seen it yet (I don't have cable).  So I took it home and watched it.  The moment Steve appeared on the screen I started to cry.  His death was a while ago, but it still hurts like it just happened.  It stll breaks my heart that he is gone and that the animals of the world lost such a wonderful friend.

Hello. My name's Robin, and I'm new here!

I've been a fan of Steve Irwin since I was very little, from the first episode to the last, I've seen every one. I used to watch his show all the time with my parents, and it never mattered to me if I had seen the episode already.

I was devistated when I learned of his death. It happened the day before I started my freshman year in high school, and my dad called me downstairs to our living area and told me the Crocodile Hunter was dead. I laughed at first because I couldn't believe it, and then I started to cry. I called my grandmother, who was also a big fan, and told her, and then my aunt. 

I'm very glad there's a community in Steve's honor here on LJ. I just read an article about how his son was bitten by a baby boa constrictor and is proud of the bite (like father, like son and daughter!) and I thought, "I need to find a Steve Irwin community on LJ."

Crikey, Steve, we sure do miss you.

All I Really Need to Know...

I was going through a journal (my paper journal, not LJ) from about a year ago, looking for something else, and ran across this list I'd made. I meant to post it back then but never did, so here it is now. Who knows, there might be more (and better) of these floating around the Internet, but I thought I'd post mine here anyway. (With apologies to Robert Fulghum, of course...) :)

All I Really Need to Know I Learned from Steve Irwin

When you see something you want, go after it!

Find the beauty in everything.

Cherish your family.

Treat every creature with respect.

Khaki goes with everything.

Play in the mud!

Always keep an open heart.

Do your part to make the world a better place.

Laugh at yourself.

Enjoy every moment.

Steve & Me

Who has Terri's book?

I got it in the mail from Amazon.com today. :)

I have to admit I didn't get past the dedication without a tear or two.

I'm excited to read it.

Just wondering, did anybody watch the 20/20 episode on Friday night? Barbara Walters was interviewing Terri Irwin about how her life has changed since Steve's death. Most of the questions were reasonable, but I found Barbara's question about the possibility of Terri dating/having another man in her life downright rude. Doubtlessly Terri is still deeply grieved by her husband's loss, and I'm sure that sort of question would be hurtful.
Does anybody else feel the same?

I'm new

Hi! I'm Katie. I love the Crocodile Hunter. Steve changed my life. I used to be really scared of snakes, but now I'm willing to pick them up. Steve will be a part of me forever.
