Dancing, camping, bowling and water-skiing! His life was definitely not over

Let’s keep it real. As far as what was considered fun when we were out there, I’ll have to agree with my old “homies” when they say, “The only trouble with trouble is that it always starts out as fun.” Ain’t that the truth?

I can remember how I used to show up to an evening party all clean and pressed with a six pack of beer and some limes (as if to imply that I was bringing them to share). Then sometime during the following 24 hours, I’d find myself facedown in the back of a cop car, or in a motel room with some crazy person on crack, or possibly whacked out on PCP and up in a tree, or some other type of “fun” like that.
