I think being a paperboy shapes us into the men we are today. I mean.. getting up early on weekends to deliver those papers. Carrying your old t-ball bat with you for the dogs it teaches you...something.... ahhh the memories.....

Hey for the record I added numbers to your list so I could reference them to my list. I guess I'm not as young as I thought...
1. an inboard boat with a baby bee engine that was tethered to a pole and you started it up and it just did circles.

2. Atari 800 (I think that was the number). It was a game system that had a full keyboard. If that does not qualify then later I got a computer, no clue on the name of the company, that used cassette tapes instead of floppy disks. I think I was like 10 or so when we got that.

3. Walkman 4 (I think that was the number to that one) that used 4 AA batteries and was the size of about 2, 8 tracks stuck together.

4. Neil Young, Live Rust

5. The Doors, unless you count the read along stories I had as a kid.

6. Same as yours

7. 74 Chevy Luv

8. First time in jail, hmmmm does a cop car count? If so I was 9 or 10 and me an a friend accidentally lit the woods on fire near our house. If not I was 15 and was arrested with a buddy and a bottle of wine trying to sneak onto the roof to the elementary school.

As far as your #8 my friends and I were too smart and knew the neighborhood too well to get caught. We kinda did a Ferris Beuler's Day Off cut through the back yards thing if anyone ever tried to chase us including cops. We were generally laughing really hard at the people and cops trying to catch up but they were failing miserably falling over everything that we had bypassed easily.

9. My backyard with my gf that I had while I was in elementary.

10. Definately the same as yours!!!

11. Same as yours.

Thanks for opening memory lane!!! Everything was cool beans, however, no thanks for making me remember my ex!
