Did you ever make a "match gun" out of wooden clothes pins? We would take one apart and cut a trigger portion for the spring to latch in, and could shoot a wooden match about ten feet or so, the match would ignite when it left the clothes pin. Fun stuff.

We were pretty young, forged our parents handwriting to write a note to the store telling them to sell us cigarettes. haha, like they couldn't tell it was kids handwriting.

As kids 10-15 years old, we took ourselves camping overnights. No big deal. Built rafts and launched in the lake, hunted with bb guns. No adults were around.

Yeah, it was about 3 miles to the theater, me and a friend would walk there and the folks would pick us up later when the movies were over.

Remember the saying, "kids should be seen and not heard", does anyone ever say that anymore, or is that some kind of abuse?

Huge snowstorm coming to the Denver
area. It's way early, they usually come
a month from now. There's climate
change all right, but not the good
kind. We're slowly heading into another
ice age which always devastates the
planet. GW would actually help it,
but that's never gonna happen.

@ noon, it's 108. That storm is supposed to push some cool air down our way. That would be great.

@ 2:30, it just ticked over to 117...in the shade. Zowee's, no weather for man or beast.

My thermometer is reading 122.7 and I got all excited thinking we finally broke 120, but then I discovered the light angle here has shifted and my sending unit is now in the sun, so I don't think it's fair to claim 122?

Weather underground says 119, so that's probably closer.
