Lou's Diary
A little prince, not quite like the others
  Hello, I am a little boy who only sees right with his heart...
Which doesn't make my parent's daily life any easier. So I'm blind and different (mentally speaking).

Lou and water


Welcome to Lou's blog

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.

93. Stuffed animals

salon des ArdennesMy 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 ...

G'day Lou,

You made me smile with this post, I was surprised, then I realised you were joshing me.

I hope that you gradually like to feel all the different and exciting things at your Great Uncle's.

Take care my friend :)

Hello Lou.

Your uncle sounds like a very special character. I've never heard of a mycologist before - I guess you learn something new every day, eh?

You have a wonderful blog. Vegemite Rules told me about it, although I do have a feeling that I have been here before a very long time ago.

Take care - and enjoy learning about all those amazing animals.

Hey there! Glad you are able to feel these animals. I bet that is a lot of fun.

What a nice oppotunity to get to "see" all those animals! I don't blame you though - I'd be weary, too! Maybe someday.

Vegemite sent me over to say hello! I'm so glad she did! You are a very special, adorable boy!

Hello everybody,
It's so great to "meet" so many people and new readers (thanks you so much Vegemit !). You will get a lot of surprise if you follow my story !

I went to a public school just two blocks from the state blind school. We would get to go there for the occassional field trip and LOVED their collection of stuffed animals. They even had a real bear that you could climb up on as if you were riding it. It sounds odd with all the challenges that the blind students faced, but we were green with envy over their stuffed animals, that's for sure!

G'day Luc,

It is my pleasure mate, Stephie and I have tried at different times to get more awareness out there in the English speaking blogging world, to join you and your Family's celebration of Lou's life and achievements.

You are a very special family, my hat goes off to you all.

Love Kathy xoxo

This post really made me smile. I have to say that house wouldn't be my cup of tea either, but what fun it would be for a child.
