This blog was born in french during autumn 2003 and is now progressively being translated in your language.
New articles will therefore appear on a regular basis.
... my apologies to the people who hadn't understood this yet, all articles on this website are created and written by myself (his dad).
Lou is currently unable to do it,, just like he is to this day unable to grasp the concept of a "computer", "internet", or to focus for a long period of time on a conversation. Only time will tell us if we manage to integrate him completely in the world in which he lives.
Therefore all stories, despite relating actual facts, are obviously biased by my interpretation of his behavior. But having known him for over five years, I don't think I'm getting it wrong.
Thank you to the "Roi Baudoin" foundation ( "Parcours hors pistes" ). The new design, hosting and translations were partially made possible by their financial support.
Many thanks to Marco Pappalardo et Laetitia Bouet for the translation.

93. Stuffed animals
My great uncle, whom I've never known and who owns the house in the Ardennes, was a very literate man who, besides his own job, knew a lot about nature : botanist, beekeeper, fisherman, mycologist (specialist of mushrooms), and hunter ... That's why the house is filled with hunting trophys : ranging from wildboar heads, roe deer heads, a fox and some raptors - all stuffed - to the countless deer antlers, roe deers, ibexes, onyx, etc... It's not really daddy and mommy's cup of tea, but it does contribute to the charm and the personality of the house. The upside though is that thanks to these animals they can make me touch a "real" boar, a "real" roe deer, a fox, an owl, a sparrowhawk..., all these animals I would otherwise never be able to "see" in my own way, that is, by touching them. I would probably surprise you if I told you I gladfully accept this kind of tactile discovery. Well ... I won't surprise you ... But daddy and mommy are taking it one step at a time. Besides we have plenty of time : those animals aren't exactly going to run away ...
