“I seem to remember a story where you were hunting in a thicket and came up against a hog. NO link?”
I thought that the post had been lost, but our friend knirirr was kind enough to suggest web.archive.org, otherwise known as the Wayback Machine. It took some digging but I found an archived version dated .
There are some embarrassing mistakes in the essay. The one that is truly unforgivable is that I confuse javelina with wild boar, and even misspell the word. “…torn to shreds as the havelina furiously tried to throw me off.” My only excuse is that I had only been to Texas that once, and I had heard people mention javelina. I just never bothered to ask if they were different from wild boar.
At any rate, those who are interested can read about the day I used up all of the luck God allotted me for my entire life.
