I don't even know where to begin. My guardian angel deserved a major raise and bonus.

I'm not saying I did any foolish things as a kid but one thing I can guarantee is if I did do something foolish, it wasn't recorded on a cell phone to come back and haunt me later in life

As an avid animal lover, this one still haunts me.

Can't remember exact date but 1960's.
Was asked by neighbors to watch their 2 poodles for the weekend and replied yes as it actually made me feel like a man that I had this responsibility.
They gave me a key and showed me the amount of food to feed each day.

All went well until last day when I let the dogs out and realized I'd left the keys inside and was locked out.

I collaborated with my sister and we came up with a great plan " in our minds ".
Proceeded to climb a tree and jump over on roof as my sister slung the pooches onto roof.

Um Um I dropped the dogs down the chimney back to the safety of their home.

Parents paid the vet bills, got a really good whip'n and was not asked to dog sit EVER again.

Some of our dumb stuff was recorded with a VHS camcorder. At least those tapes (if they still exist) aren't on the interwebs for anyone to see.

Let's see. This firecracker didn't go off, it's okay to hold in hand. Right, until it went off.

We didn't need a padded dash.

Grandmom had a 57 Chevy Impala. The back window dash was big enough to sleep in while riding to somewhere.

Let's ride in the back of Granddad's pickup and throw tomatoes at stuff.

Let's throw firecrackers at cars going down the street. Unfortunately one landed on the windshield of a car. When we got home, found out it was the fire chiefs car and he knew where we lived. Real small town in Texas.

Oh so much more...

One boy = one brain. 2 boys = 1/2 brain. 3 boys = no brain!
That was a comment my wife’s grandma used. She raised boys!

This is the base of my idea the best first car for any teenager is reg cab 4 cyl stick shift small pickup. 1st, assume they will wreck. Body on frame is a plus when that happens. 2nd small engine increases probability of lower speed when wreck happens. The stick shift means must pay more attention to driving, helps reduce chance of wreck.
But most important, think back to your teenage years; Every time you got in trouble, or got away with something, there was 3-5 of you in the car. Small cab stick shift, can't get below that half brain level.

I would have to agree with you except modern trucks 4 cylinders produce lots of power compared to the 4 bangers we grew up with.
