THAT 70'S LIFE

For Halloween, my coworkers and I decided on a seventies theme in which we dressed like the people at that time. We wore tie dyed shirts and bell bottom jeans. I took it a step further and wore an afro whig. I was a child of the seventies and though my father wouldn't let me have an afro many of my... Sign in to see full entry.

STICK 'EM SCOTT

My first year in high school and we are getting our uniforms for football practice. One of the seniors comes into the gym making big noise about what he was going to do that season. Of course, us under classmen are listening to this and thinking to ourselves, "This must be one bad dude." The... Sign in to see full entry.

BOYS WILL BE BOYS

Sitting in the theatre with friends watching Rodney Dangerfield in "Back To School." In one of the opening scenes, Dangerfield and his wife played by Adrainne Barbeaux are having a party. Tired of the event, Dangerfield fixes himself a sandwich then goes to the fridge. As he gets there he opens the... Sign in to see full entry.

5 O'CLOCK SATURDAY

I'm not a big fan of 5 o'clock Saturday afternoon. And I'm not a big fan of the song "It's 5 o'clock Somewhere." That's because of what I had to go through at 5 o'clock Saturday afternoon while growing up. As the youngest boy of eight with five sisters and one TV you can guess that there were...

TOUGH LOVE

I belong to a pretty large family. Between brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles and cousins there were plenty of us to go around. Most of us grew up together and still live close by. Growing up as one of the youngest, I had to put up with a ritual the older boys established. Knowing that if they hit... Sign in to see full entry.

One Funny Dude!

I love 'Sanford and Son' and Redd Foxx who played Fred Sanford was one of my favorite comedians. One of the scenes I remember occured while he was standing in the junkyard. His friend Bubba shows up and says: "Fred I need a favor. Can you loan me 20 bucks?' To watch Fred answers: "Bubba you picked a... Sign in to see full entry.

HOW DOES HE REMEMBER THIS STUFF?

One of my best friend's growing up was the class clown and the funniest dude on earth. He still makes people laugh. He could have gone to Hollywood he is that funny. But now he owns a a store where in his words he, "Peddles ham." Rumor has it that there is video of him stripping out of his tux at a... Sign in to see full entry.

DOING THE SPLITS

The first time that I bowled a 200 game was motivated by embarrassment. While warming up for the night's first set, I somehow split my pants from the seat to the crotch. I don't know how I noticed, but did and quickly worked to rectify the situation by pulling my shirt tail out. I knew that I was... Sign in to see full entry.

GEE! THANKS MEAN JOE!

Remember the Coca-Cola commercial in the late 70's when football player Mean Joe Greene tossed a kid his jersey after the young man gave him his Coke? We had a talent show when I was in eighth grade where a couple of friends did a parody of it. Their act came before the finale in which a group of... Sign in to see full entry.

THE MOON WAS OUT!

Just took a cruise to Bermuda with about 30 family members. Of course, they had games and contests in the ship lounge. One night they had a game called Quest, which is an adult scavenger hunt where teams are formed, the emcee asks us to find an item and you must bring it to him. Five points for the...
