Wow, I never thought you were that...mature, lol! Really, though I thought you were about my age or so. For the first ten or so years of my life, I thought the 'war' was normal and was warned over and over (when going outside in the neighborhood to play) to "Stay away from the hippies!" Lol, were you a hippie Harrison?

We had a two story house with a large deck on the 2nd floor. We had this porch swing where I would go and take my naps. I still remember swinging and looking at the mountains. I don't think I have slept that well since. In the winter the elementary school that I went to had the best sledding hill ever. I spent most of my weekends in the winter there. Mom would bring us hot chocolate and sandwiches because she knew we wouldn't come home for lunch.

That sounds like a truly beautiful place! Does your family still have it?

No. We moved to Kansas when I was ten. What a difference in scenery. I have so many wonderful memories of my childhood. I am always thankful to my parents for that. We went on a big vacation every year and there was always something to do. My dad was a cop and we would go to work with him sometimes. He taught the cadets and that was always fun. Anything bad from my childhood was nothing compared to the good memories I have.

story time....around 19 I started going to a bar/dance club. Bartender Bill never asked for ID (okay with me).
"Action Unlimited Show Band" had a steady gig there. Fri/Sat nights for better part of 2 years there I was, under age doin my thing. Now the good part....turned 21 Aug 69' and flopped my OLCC card (real ID) on bartender Bills bar.
Never will forget the look he gave me as he laughed and said "YOU POS" and poured me my first legal drink.

I was working a bar at 16. The law wasn't as strict then and we could get away with a lot more. Those were the best times of my life..

I guess you can say that my clock started at my very first breath and like the seasons some times we spring forward (like the birth of my son) or some times well fall back ( like when i was blown up),,,, so like John Camron Swayze you can lick/tiok me but I will still tock..

I spent 3 summers during high school working in the shadow of Mt. Saint Helens at Spirit Lake Lodge in Washington state. Years later and about 100 miles to the south living in Portland, Or. I watched the eruption and hugh plum of ash and smoke head my way.
May 18, 1980 was just another day in the clock of life for me.
I miss a mountain too.

I remember that day too. We saw it all the way in Denver. Lots of ash everywhere but I'm sure nothing compared to you.
