Reminiscing

August 8, 2008 @ 12:12

My sweet darlin' had to work this week so I was up at the tin palace all alone, until yesterday. In the late afternoon, my buddy Doug arrived.

Doug is my longest and dearest friend. We've been friends since we were five years old, and we've been through a lot together, including many great times on the lake where my trailer sits.

As kids our parents rented lots at a nearby park and we spent every summer in the Kawarthas gathering memories which have led to great stories.

A good portion of yesterday was spent looking up the lake and prefacing most of what we said with "do you remember that time?"

It's actually bitter sweet because as much as fun as it is to remember, it's a bummer to realize how the years have flown by.

Doug and I talked about things that happened 40 years ago, as if they happened last week.

Spin the clock ahead by the much and we'll probably be like Scruff Connors isn't.

I wish I could have been a fly on the wall and heard some
of the stories you two were
remembering.....mostly about your two fathers I'm sure. They were a pair like we will
never see again..."Who makes
the best breakfast" could
always be heard Sunday mornings....and then you could hear their roars of laughter. I would say that
between beer and rye they would remember about half of
the summer. Oh to live those
days again...the men were
healthy and our kids were young. I must say you all
made your daddys proud...you
learned to drink like them and
cuss like them. Have fun
Doug and Fred.....but just
remember your kids will sit
and discuss the things you two
did someday...I would like to hear that too.

to get heard of the modern Kinect? Its truly awesome! I never had a great deal fun playing video games before, eventhough I will call myself a new hardcore player that will usually plays adventures like Call of Duty and so on. The Kinect is simply so different than whatever else I have ever before played before. this motion controles work really well, and in addition to that, but not needing to use a controller to experiment with is the personification regarding freedom! No troublesome button smashing anymore, a single word is enough! You should really think about getting the Kinect!the xbox 360 store
