Only two types of people say that: birders, and dumpster divers.

On a side note, I’ve always wanted to go to a dump… the stuff we say, lol

I need to find new friends, I know the strangest people. "What do you do on your time off?" "Oh, I drive 5 hours to go visit the sewage dump, and stare at a small blob way off." At least birders aren't as bad a people in the llama world. You meet the strangest people selling, buying, and sheering llamas.

I mean, everyone lets the wallabies in the house right? There not much of a problem though, but you really have to watch out for the camels, particularly when eating. They are particularly fond of toast and blueberry jelly.....

Do you know anyone with a 20 foot wide, 10 foot tall, flying saucer in the front yard? Not to mention a matching, 12" tall rocket?

I hope not.

The guy with the camels, when we asked how you tame a camel, and his reply was, "Oh that's easy, you just let 'em in the house." It totally cracked me up, he was so serous, you would have thought he just said he lets the dog in the house. He said it like that was the most normal thing ever.

Really though, you meet some cool people when sheering llamas. Don't know for sure, but I think it would be a pretty good bet, that I know the only(if not the only, it has to be a short list) person to ever land a helicopter in Johnny Cash's yard. I don't remember who it was he landed there, some writer who he had shared a room with for several years at some point. Any way, they guy and ended up real big deal, wrote several songs for Johnny Cash, and several other people.
