What do You think - It is better to see Your enemy or make blind shoots into the oily, whispering shadows? And when You finally lost a gun, and run as fast You can, screaming and stumble over rocks, do You make a quick look over Your shoulder right into the noiseless darkness? And the last thing You hear is the weak squeak of some kind of small animal in trouble when a predator immerses his claws into a tiny body. And You find out, that was You squeak...
I just wanted from my husband to give me for a present something that a woman could consider to be awesome - You know - a jewelry, new clothes, cosmetics... But as always I received something "unexpected and useful" - that`s what my husband told, when he gave me a wood burner... Yeah! Now I can make as many chests, as I want! I`m so happy right now!
