    Re: Childhood memories

    When I was in college I used to help with the Boy Scout troop I’d been in while growing up. One summer at a weekend camp for all the local troops a couple of brothers found this old tractor tire. They hauled it to the top of a hill to one side of the campgrounds and decided it would be fun to roll it down the hill. Took out a dozen tents and a couple fires where other kids were cooking dinner, they were lucky no one was hurt. Told them that they were also lucky since we couldn’t leave them in the woods and tell their parents they’d run away…. Funny end to all that, the older brother decided to join the marines after high school and while on leave during his first hitch, was the most polite yes sir, no sir, good to see you sir guy. Took a gunny to work the reckless out of him I guess.

    I've actually done that myself as a kid with tractor tires (not a super steep hill). What fun! (but we didn't destroy any camp sites LOL)

    Well if you swallowed some scrabble tiles that could also give you an irritable vowel.
