This had better not be anyone's idea of a bad joke..I just heard that my kids' favourite celebrity Steve Irwin died as a result of a sting ray striking him with its barb in the chest somewhere off the coast of Port Douglas. I cannot find it anywhere on the news on the net but I hope it ain't true.
I know, better than anyone that people we know and love can die without any given notice. But if this is true then I am going to have to be there for the kids and let them know about it when they get out of school. Bye Crikey....I think I am in shock here. :(
Sorry, just got it on the net now, it is true...read about it here.
My kids have grown up watching his documentaries, have stayed up late watching his interviews on TV with his wife Terri and their little girl Bindi..now they have their little boy aswell. This sux, I know it is occupational hazzard for Steve but what a way to go.
We planned on going to Australia Zoo on our bus adventure aswell, hoping that Steve would be there at the time we visited and all. The kids only spoke of it the other day here in the lounge room.
