.

.

what sounded like a horse running at me It was galloping.

.

.

it was galloping down the mountain at me and all I could think was get behind the tree get behind the tree so I got behind the tree and just stood there and looked at it it was flaring it's nostrils at me and then after what seemed like five minutes was probably twenty seconds I decided to just back away slowly and then turned and ran anyway, I'm looking forward to.

They've since closed downit's not a big thing I did have one crack at retail here as well at a place called Bear Country Shirts how did that go? They cut me from 38 hours to 4 hoursa week because I sold one skivvy what I went to next was the Magpie and Stump which is still here I worked in the dish pit and there was dishes comingfrom all angles and I was in the middle of it just washing stuff.

It stunk ofMexican food and it turned me off so much I quit after a week.
