    Default Dumb, dumb, dumb...

    My wife and I were driving down this old back road yesterday doing about 65 mph (in no mans land- Montana), and I was eating an apple.


    SOoooo, I took my last bite and threw the core out the window...

    The window was up....
    Duh...I thought the window was down.. Hey, it was so clean I really thought it was down.

    The apple smashed against the glass, splattered, bounced off the window, smacked me on the left cheek of my face, then fell between the door and seat.

    Had apple all over the place.

    My wife had tears in her eyes as she laughed at me.....What a memory I left her with!


    I would have sworn that window was open..

    I tossed my High School ring out the window with a beer can back in the day. It was a loose fit.

    Don't get me started on littering! I suppose an apple core thrown out side of the road will degrade eventually, but anything else is unacceptable, especially beer cans and bottles. I walk the road side of my house almost daily and pick up sacks of litter thrown out by uncaring, unpatriotic, a$$holes. I would be really disappointed if any current members of this forum would even think of littering.
    Excuse my rant, but I'm sure most of us like to ride the countryside and see grass and trees and celebrate the freedom and beauty of our country, and not see beer bottles, Walmart sacks, fast food bags, candy wrappers, cans full of tobacco spit, water bottles full of urine, cigar and cigarette butts, baby diapers full of poop, etc.
    THANKS, I feel much better now!

    back in the day, when I didn't know nuffin, I tossed my cig butt out the window .... after a while I smelled something burning coming from the back seat ... apparently the wind blew the butt back in the open rear door window where it landed on the back seat and burned a big hole.

    Karma's a b*tch! LOL

    Back in my young days, people walked the road shoulders picking up pop bottles for the deposit and aluminum cans to recycle for cash. I haven't seen that happen in a long time.

    Yeah that Karma thing. One Christmas when I was in high school back in the early 60's, 3 of my buddies and I were riding around throwing cherry bombs. I drove by one of our male teacher's home whom we didn't particularly like and the plan was to toss one on his yard. The guy in the back seat didn't get it out of the car. He yelled firecracker in the car. I put my elbows on the steering wheel and covered my ears. I found out where it was then. It was between my back and the seat back. It blew a big hole in my London Fog jacket, a big hole in my shirt, and t-shirt and burned an area on my back about the size of a silver dollar. Not to mention what it did to the car. I stopped and pulled out some burning cotton from the hole in the seat. When it went off it felt like someone hit me in the back with a baseball bat. Those old cherry bombs had some powder!

    I should have prefaced my post with, "When I was young and stupid" , agreed neither action proposed in my post were the actions of a grown adult, I am much better now, never litter and never drink and drive. Not meant to offend anyone, Eck's post reminded me of something that happened a long time ago, still was not the right thing to do.

    Me too. I did some stupid and dangerous things during my misspent youth. But, I did not ever hurt anybody and with age comes a little maturity.

    I gotta tell ya Eckster I am right there with your wife ... THAT is a classic my friend!!

    Now let me tell ya one that happened last night.. Tip comes home late from visiting with her mom, asked if I was hungry - of course I was hungry, I am always hungry.. I made the suggestion of heading to Taco Bell for a Taco.. We head out, its dark, we turned the corner by the Pizza Joint and there in the road lays a bag with something in it.. One of my bad habits (and its a bad one) is picking up junk on the side of the road (oughta see the cool hats, shirts, gloves and Harley parts I bring home from Sturgis every year) so I instantly noticed the white bag with something in it.. Turned around, went back and found a fresh baked Pizza that had probably fallen off the top of someones car!! Picked it up, looked at Tippy and proudly announced "Dinner is served" ..
    Remembering my brother and friend:
    "I'm not Yammer Dan" - Yammer Dan
    Proverbs 18:24 - "There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother"..
    Miss you bro - Puc
    Life is just one step after another..on a rocky hill side-Sly
