I like to start every day with a Tavish post.

You would think that you would have learned to stay out of the water.

You would think that you would have learned to stop climbing trees.

I don't know what "three miles away from 'room temperature'" means but this is starting to sound less like a case of bad luck and more of a case of you should be riding a short bus.

I'm begining to suspect that your mom accepted and you and the bum lived in a tree......above a creek approximately three miles away from room temperature.

I don't swim anymore. See the "What are you afraid of thread". Don't all kids fall out of trees? I think I did just a few more times than normal. When I fell through the ice, I was approximately 3 miles from the closest house. I had to walk in freezing weather drenching wet. I literally crawled the last hundred feet or so because my body was shaking so bad. Pretty scary. All these are probably a combination of bad luck and bad decisions. The bum was a nice old man that lived under a bridge close to where we went grocery shopping. Maybe my mom should have taken him up on the deal. Maybe he would have kept me out of water, trees, etc. :-b

Agreed. Although I think my keyboard hates Tavish because of the Orange Juice I've spit on over the years, an event that repeated itself this morning.

man, that's funnier than Omaha's mom getting an offer to trade him for sleeping bags

i stuck my tounge to a frozen fence one...that really sucked. i didnt believe it would really work like in Cristmas Story...only i didnt just put the tip on, i stuck my whole tounge on there like i was licking an ice-cream cone. i tried to pull it off and ripped some skin off. finally my baby-sitter threw some warm water on the pole

8-o

I think I spent about a quarter of my childhood in trees - climbing, building forts, using them as ladders to climb to the top of houses, barns, sheds, etc.

Trees are nature's jungle gyms! ;-D

I always just figured I'd fall out of the tree, so I stayed away from climbing them.

You were entirely to pragmatic for a child. I fell out of lots of trees, but I was never smart enough (or pragmatic enough) to stay out of them the next time.
