Just thinking today about being a kid and if I could remember things I got.

Very first present I remember was 1970 I was 8 years old and got a huge toy tow truck it was white and had working winch and lights , that was 48 years ago .   Next present I remember was 1976 my mom got me a tent and we camped in it even in the winter . Dad died when I was 1 and mom raised 12 kids alone so life was hard and I was sick most of the time so money was tight but Mom did the best she could .

Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.

“Life is tough, but it’s tougher if you’re stupid… There are some things a man just can’t run away from. A man’s got to have a code, a creed to live by.”

In 1970 I was 21 and just got home from vietnam, that Xmas eve I was with a group of people walking and a volkswagon ran through the middle scooping me up and I went head first backwards through the windshield! My mom gave me a doeskin jacket with fringe and doeskin knee length moccasins for that Christmas!

I was just thinking yesterday of the ozarkhunter christmas giveaway we did a few years back, I got a duckcall from Dspeakes and somebody won a box of steel shot from Unce, he sure griped when he found out the postage to mail it.

i've always heard, hard work never killed anyone..............but why take a chance?
