    Lol...funny....it reminded me of a time long ago when I had to do my own grocery shopping (wife was overseas), I was looking up and down the isles for my favorite snacks and couldnt find it. There was a young guy stacking shelves and I walked up to him asking "hey Buddy wheres your nuts", he looked at me kind of funny, and then we both busted out laughing.

    Thanks for the post r12rules, that was a real hoot I can relate to!
    Toolslinger, that's an interesting point. I raised a ton of animals growing up as well (animals are tasty), and now I talk to mechanical equip., especially when troubleshooting. I thought maybe I was crazy, and many apprentices would agree, but you're point makes sense...

    It is true, I swear it.

    When you spend alot of time around animals, especially if you work with them or train them, your voice is a powerful way to communicate with them. You can teach them some words/commands maybe, but the sound/tone of your voice communicates your disposition. It may have a calming affect, and 'herd' animals like to know you are there since they have an instinct to frighten at suprise appearances[preadators]. As a young fella, you just natrually pick up ther habit of talking/thinking out loud.

    So did mine, until last night. I took them back and am trying to find an apartment as we speak. Feels good to finally have them back, can't wait to use them again!
