    He liked it a little too much <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15"><br>He lost some enthusiasm for it, when I caught him shooting my dogs with it, and shooting my workers with it. In fairness he was wearing the safety glasses while using it.<br><br>He now has an obsession with xbows and machines.<br>Daddy make machine, daddy make gun <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">
