    I mentioned before, in my early 20’s I worked for an ecological study as biologist assistant. In the field as a fish and specimen collector and in the lab sorting and identifying those specimens. I love the stories about Errol’s dad and all the field trips they had together. I’ve had this DVD for many years now. Errol Leslie lived 3 lifetimes in 50 years! Did he ever really sleep? LOL! The world was much freer than today! Everyone was very young…..
