Just a Big Fish Story.
I spent much of my childhood looking for outdoor adventures.
The Other Side of Death.
On such a beautiful day with the deep blue sky and billowy clouds, I wasn’t prepared for that scene of tragedy.
It’s Creeping in Our Bedroom.
What was that noise?….It’s the middle of the night. What has crept into our bedroom?
Too Big To Turn Down!
There is a thin line between stupid and fearless, sometimes.
Have you ever been somehwere so nasty that the “ick” factor made you gag? Did your best friend help you through it?

Jump, John, Jump!

The flood at the creek nearly drown me. I never told mom what really happened.
The Crash of Glass.
The crash of glass was heard as I tried to make it through the door.

I snuck away from a church picnic to slide down the spillway at the lake and nearly killed myself in the process.
The Great Cave Expedition.
Exploring the church crawlspace on a secret mission. We thought we’d been successful until unforeseen circumstances intervened.
