just when you think you know your spouse of 16 years......
he tells you that he was at a BBQ at Ken Ham's house in Australia back in '88!!

Shocking

I'm sitting here still dumbfounded. Ohmy


My husband is a believer, raised by whackadoodle creationists who sponsor the Ark (completely different rant) but he keeps his religion very quiet and to himself, he never goes to church or any other habits except maybe a quiet prayer when shit is hitting the fan.

I knew his family went on a trip to Oz years ago, but I didn't know Ken was the tour guide for their one busload for the week. So for a week they were together touring Oz, one stop was at his house for a big BBQ.

He said he remembers Hams daughter making necklaces to look like Aboriginal necklaces to sell.


how did I not know all this? We've been married for 16 years, lived together for 5 years before that. We have talked about the Ark and Ham many times!

I'm just going to go try to wrap my brain around all this new info and try not to say WTAF? all day long.

We all have our secrets. Knowing how you feel he probably concluded it was neither here nor there, especially since he was a teenager at the time right?

I think you might want to cut him some slack, after all the poor guy had to endure his whackadoodle family and Ken Ham.

Anyway, he seemed like a real nice guy to me. Yes

You wouldn't eat wombat. Too tough. Kangaroo is a nice game meat. Though you have to be careful when cooking it. It's a very 'lean' meat with little fat within the muscle. Cook it too long and it goes to boot leather very quickly. Emu's nice as well.

As for the accusation of making the necklaces to sell, that's a whole load of "F@ck off illegality" right there. The native folks here are still kind of getting screwed many ways from Sunday so people ripping them off like that does suck.

He was probably embarrassed to admit it. I know I'd be.

And now by the Kevin Bacon postulate I am only one degree removed from Ken Hobo

This is bad.

I've had kangaroo, it's yummy, similar to steak, supposedly healthier for you too.

I asked my husband if she was trying to sell them as authentic pieces or reproductions, he didn't know. He just remembered Ken talking about how good his daughter was getting at making them.
