Fond Memory

Recommended Posts

I remember it well...it was summertime when Dad taught me to swim. I had been hanging around the house, and mom had about enough. So she told dad to get me out of the house. We went down to the local swimming hole, which was a wide, deep part of a local creek. There, without warning, he unceremoniously threw me into the deepest part of the swift creek waters.


I really didn't have any problem figuring out how to swim...it came pretty natural. But I had a hell of a time getting out of that burlap sack full of rocks.

When I was a teenager my pa, who was strictly anti abortion, decided that the age limit on aborting a fetus should be raised to 18 years old.

Mark, you must have been a teenager. :lol:

 

Fractured Bible Interpretation.

Q: Why did God ask Abraham to sacrifice Issac when Issac was but a lad of 12 year or less?

A: Because if Issac had been a teenager, it probably wouldn't have been a sacrifice!!

;):P:lol:

I wonder if I could interest anything if I dropped a fly into the tail end of that riffle?

I am a real proponent of retroactive birth control.  Sure are a lot of folks in this country who should have been machine gunned in the womb.

I believe it was Louis L'amour who opined that children should be raised in a sealed wooden barrel and fed through the bung hole until they were 21. :D

WC Field’s version had kids raised in the barrel and fed through the bung hole until teenagers. At that point, plug the bung  hole.

When Petey was a wee lad apparently conventional swimming lessons did not take.  His Dad put him in the boat, took him out of the sight of land & threw him overboard.  I did not believe this story until his Mom confirmed it.  Petey sez by the time they returned home, he'd worked up a good cry & told Mom, who then reigned fire & brimstone onto Dad.  His response: Aw Mary, I had a line on the boy.

Fast forward a number of years.  Petey called me from the YWCA on Monday saying 'You will be taking swimming lessons starting Wednesday night.'  I went kicking & screaming.
