i love when my followers blog things like this
this guy was my idol at one point
Mine too. In 5th grade we had to mail our hero as a project and see who mailed back. Most people picked baseball players or something, but I was one of three kids that actually got mail back from my hero. Steve was so nice in the letter, he sent me bumper stickers and a map of the zoo he used to work at too.
^ that made me smile. i just had to reblog.
I remember I was in the car on the way home when dad told me he died and I just burst out crying, he was one of my favorite people in the world :(
I used to watch animal planet all the time and when Steve was on I was always so excited and when my mom told me he died I was just so sad because he’s just so fucking amazing ):
I saw him at Australia Zoo! Crikey, he was awesome.
I was always promised we would go to Australia Zoo one day and then I came to school one day and my teacher asked if we’d heard and we’re like what? and he told us and we all cried and did a project on him.
aw i went to Australia Zoo in grade 5 for a school excursion and I was just standing near one of the enclosures and Terri and him rode past on a motorbike and he waved at us :) it was awesome!
