when I was a kid we used to play war games in the wintertime involving shooting each other with bb guns. We also used to ski doo, which involved me plowing head first into a tree one time. We also used to hunt for pigeons under an underpass using a section of TV antenna for a ladder, and once ran home with it sticking straight up into the atmosphere during a lightning storm. Let's just say that I'm happy to still be here to remember:)

Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.

I found this old thread and I thought it would chear me up

As a Grandfather. I have discovered that the best thing in the world to help me when I am down Is to see my Grandchildren smile
and laugh. There is something about a happy child that helps my soul.

662. NEVER try to cross a river while going hand over hand hanging from a water pipe which in turn is hanging suspended beneath a highway bridge!

663. Blackberry thickets are injurious to a boy's body when fallen into whilst attempting to cross a river hand over hand... water pipe... bridge...!

664. Hiding a pair of soiled underwear behind your dresser for weeks and then blaming it on your brother when your mother discovers it works and can be very funny, especially when she wraps the underwear up as a present and gives it to him and he is in such shock when he opens up the present that he actually believes that they were his.

I see recovery as a lifelong journey rather than a final destination, a journey, though, which can have many successes along the way.

665. Remembering ... sigh .... cry

Nobody living can ever stop me
As I go walking my freedom highway.
Nobody living can make me turn back:
This land was made for you and me.
(Woody Guthrie)

666. Nothing actually happens just because the number "666" is coincidentally associated with something. Also, playing records backwards reveals nothing but an earache...

Give sorrow words: the grief that does not speak
Whispers the o'er-fraught heart and bids it break.

-William Shakespeare, Macbeth, Act IV, Sc. III

Even at 19 using your imagination can still bring a smile to your face.

I found out how ticked off my sister can get after I got ahold of some fireworks & effectively "eliminate" her Ken & Barbie dolls!

you can not fly no matter how hard you try

falling off a roof hurts

straw brooms do not put out fires

cooking wine feels like fire when you drink it

xrays pick up swallowed bb's you never told anyone you swallowed

big dragonflies BITE

cats do not like roach clips with feathers clipped on their tails

sugar in the gas tank does not make the car hyper and drive faster

booby traps have nothing to do with laying moms bras in the yard to catch rabbits

stealing apple pie from a window makes old women cranky

easy bake ovens will cook bugs

cooked bugs dont taste like chicken

closing your eyes dose not make you invisible

garlic cloves are hotter then pepper when bitten

preachers dont understand why you want holy water for vampires

kissing frogs or toads does not turn them into a human who will be your best friend

zippers need to be zipped carefully

its not easy to hide all this damage inside,
and ill carry it w
ith me until i'm not alive.
