Okay fine.
It was a cheap blurry copy of the first issue of Cuckery Today magazine I was smuggling of Europe. Hey, it was all I had those days and I couldn't wait till I landed.

1. When I first went to school, every morning we stood in class and repeated, "I salute the flag, the emblem of my country. Red, white and blue, red white and blue.....GOD SAVE THE KING!!"

2. Our party line phone number was 305 - five short turns of the crank on the side of the phone box.

3. I rode a cow in the local town parade and won 1st prize.

4. We milked cows by hand and separated the milk from the cream; we sold the cream and fed the milk to the chickens.

5. I won a female piglet in a raffle drive and when Penny got old enough I decided I wanted her to have some piglets for us to sell. So dad hooked up a small trailer to the tractor, we loaded Penny into the trailer and Dad drove her a few miles down the road to spend a couple of days with the boar. He brought her back a few days later and we put her in her pen but the next day we discovered she had broken out of her pen!! We searched the barns, the outbuildings and the gardens. We finally found her - waiting patiently in the trailer!!

Flaming - HAHAHA, Penny had a fancy for the boar I see. Did she have her piglets?
I dated a guy when I was young, his Dad inherited a farm, decided to have pigs. Couldn't part to part with them or shiver eat them
So he had oodles of them. Sweet creatures

2. Was born before the maple leaf was our flag.
3. Didn’t have electricity, telephone or indoor plumbing for the first 4 years of my life.
4. I’m a hillbilly but not a redneck.
5. Spent way too many years of my adult life volunteering for various community organizations.
I remember saying the lords prayer and singing national anthem in morning, then at end of the school day singing god save the queen (this will date me by not saying the king).
I don't give a damn whether people/posters like me or dislike me, I'm not on earth to win any popularity contests.

This is hard and shows me I'm not very interesting. lol

1. My dad owned a Ready Mix business so I have finished concrete. I did 2 sidewalks by myself.

2. I have thinned and picked apples and then worked in warehouses sorting and packing apples, I packed apples for several years.

3. I have horrible nightmares if I don't read an occasional horror book.

4. My mother was told she couldn't get pregnant. I am a "miracle baby". [icon_lol2.gif]

5. I begged my parents for a sibling and they adopted my brother to shut me up. A few years later I wanted a baby sister, so they adopted a baby girl. I finally shut up. About that anyway.

Dang! I didn't even think about that! hahaha There were times after my brother and I got into a fight or my sister got into my stuff that I wondered what I was thinking.

1. I was a linesman for 4 NHL exhibition games. (I was way too small at the time and the players skated all over the ice with me.)

2. I've only ever had one real job in my life. At times I wore shorts and a T-shirt and at other times I had to wear a Canadian flag pin on my lapel. (It had its interesting moments, but overall it sucked.)

3. I'm a recovered adrenaline junkie that now prefers to be in a seat during takeoff, flight and landing.

4. I've made phone calls that have shut down Dunsmuir, Georgia and Howe streets during rush hour so that I could drive down them the wrong way. Yeah, I was that guy - you're welcome.

5. I like sunsets, long walks on the beach and late evenings reading technical papers and legislation with my cat. (You wouldn't believe how interested a cat can be in the CSA Z1600-17 and NFPA 1600 standards.)

Wait, wait, wait! I've got to edit this because I don't want to be outdone by Queen K and Seewood.

The front tire of my suburban, my boots and pant leg made a cameo appearance in the movie "Shooter" as an FBI agent. :smt045

It did. I wouldn't trade either one my siblings for the world. Even if they do tick me off occasionally. lol
