    Love it. You should keep a journal.

    This buddy of mine who used to run a liquor store here in Bardstown used to do long, involved Facebook posts documenting the weird stuff he would see or people would say/ask at the store — especially the drive-thru. Sadly he got out of the business before we could team up on a best-seller.

    I was doing community service in BG for a college mishap that landed me in the hoosegow. It was at the Girls' Club in BG. One of the days I was there, Muhammad Ali showed up.

    I was totally defensive, and got creamed 10-2. But I was just happy I scored!
    Always a good thing.

    I owe TAC a chicken dinner from some kind of challenge several years.

    It's looking pretty rough in the back of the fridge these days.

Saw Kennedy in OR room, obviously deceased, nurse dropped bloody scrubs in trash as he walked by, thought about picking them out of trash, but didn’t. Jackie was outside the room smoking, no one knew she smoked.

    When I was in the 5th Grade I broke my arm in 3 places playing tackle football. The kicker was I was wearing my Girl Scout uniform(yes little green dresscomplete with sash which I used as a sling, never dawned on me that I broke it because I'd never had broken anything. I called my mom & told her I was sick to my stomach when she arrived I told her my stomach hurt but my arm was killing me. She took one look at my arm & declared it broke then took me to the hospital as usual she was right. The school 'outlawed' playing tackle football from that day forward.

    On June 1st I will have been with my current employer 35 years.

    I've broken both of my ankles twice.

    When I was going to UK, I ran board for a local band called "Mystic Traveler".

    I was the morning DJ at WMOR for one weekend. It's the only job I was ever fired from.

    I really like this thread. It's fascinating to hear all of these stories.

    In all sincerity, I feel I've had a pretty blessed life, with wonderful, loving parents and caring friends. Thankful for each and every day. I know that's not terribly interesting but it's so very true.

    I kissed a girl and I liked it (my wife, of course).

    I have drank one cup of coffee in my life. I was 11 and it was to wash down medicine.

    I watched a plane crash into the gulf when I was on vacation in Destin eight years ago

    Never watched a plane crash but it is a recurring dream that I've had many times. I wonder what that dream is supposed to mean?
