STEALIN WHEN I SHOULDA BEEN BUYIN'

Tagged by my new friend Akelmalu for eight things you might not know about me....I've already done 6 things that make me Crazy and 5 things that make me weird so lets see if can't play this one straight.
And I still owe half of another tag from Gewels, I think, some kind of foursome thing....but I would'nt hold my breath.

Soooo....

1) The name of the Nursery Scholol I attended was "The Little Hoss Ranch". We got Orange Juice, Crackers and watched Felix the Cat every afternoon.

2) The street I lived on had no little boys for me to play with, so I always got to be Tarzan, or Superman or Ken. I discovered that when the girls are through playing with you, you are outta there.

3) I was in Indian Guides, a Father-Son group activity group. My Dads Indian name was "Walleye" and mine was "Yellow Perch."

4) The day I turned 11, I went to the Boy Scout meeting and fulfilled all the requirements for my Tenderfoot Badge.

4 and a Half) I am an Eagle Scout.

5) I still remember the Oath, Slogan, Laws and Motto and I still know enough knots that I could tie you up pretty darn good.

6) I used to build and launch Model Rockets and was President of the Rocket Club. My nickname was "Rocket Renfro".

7) I was also President of a Junior Acheivement Company, but my Company went belly up because I was screwing three of my Employess. Excuse me...Associates.

8) I am a Rule Breaker and Risk-Taker. But you knew that!

Scouting was born in England in 1906? by Baden powell?

How about a Bimini Twist? ...Blindfolded! Did people call you an underachiever, too? Isn't it annoying!

GEWELS said...

Did you practice any of said knots on any of said employees..er, excuse me- associates?

Beth said...

Hey — I went to kindergarten at Kiddie Dude Ranch! We got grape juice and graham crackers.

Akelamalu said...

Well done. Not that I'd know if you are right, I was never a scout! ((wink))
Now, about that rope......

Barbara said...

Definitely crazy, but I'd take you camping any day if you are an Eagle Scout. Was there some sort of disconnect between becoming an Eagle Scout and screwing your employees? Those two seem a little incompatible! :)

GEWELS said...

Popped over to wish you a HAPPY FATHER's DAY.

Tell those kids they have to be nice to you today.

I discovered that when the girls are through playing with you, you are outta there.

Ha! A lesson that I am sure has served you well in adult life.

Old Lady said...

Happy Father's Day!

dAVE- I have actually tied the Bimini before...when it first appeared in a sports illustrated you granpa and I tried to tie a few.
Gewels- What kind of guy do you think I am?

Beth-That makes us Alumni! i wish we had had Grape Juice.

Yes, Barbara, somewhere between Scouts and Junior Acheivement, a whole new world opened up for me!

Grizz- Yeah, i'm sure it kept me from making a bigger fool than I already had on a few occasions when I tried to make someone change a mind that was already made up.

steve said...

ol lady- thanks; I am ready to be "dished on"...

kissyface said...

Is that a rocket in your pocket, or are you just glad...

but "walleye"? do you have a lazy eye? or did you just have to go stand in the corner a lot?

steve said...

KF- would you like a closer look? Maybe a demonstration? lol

Dad was ol Walleye...I got to pick the names and I didn't know what I was saying!
