Good Tuesday Morning to all~~

Or whatever time of day it is for you. Koffee Klatch is all about fun and smiles. So relying on your memory...OK, stop the laughter.... what memory we all have left, look back at some of the silly and crazy things you done in your life and answer the following question:

What are three ‘nevers’ in your life?shocked

Yep, only 3! smhair OK, I actually have to think on this one. OK, my first one is...

Never... trust your older brother when he offers you a ride on the back of his new motorcycle...and I was about 12. I found out within the first 2.5 seconds his only goal was to frighten 27 years off of my life.

Never... Grease a ball hitch on the tractor, the one dad is selling and a prospective buyer is on his way. I was just cleaning it up and trying to make it look great for him. Greased all of the fittings and who was I to know you didn't grease a 'dry ball' hitch. nono

And never... Never EVER repeat words you don't know the meaning of to your parents...not unless you're real fond of the taste of Dial bar soap. Brother told me to tell mom and dad the new words I had learned...from HIM. I wondered why he whispered them to me. That's OK, over 50 years later I'm getting back...and revenge is oh so sweet!

And what are your 3 "Nevers"?

Um, let's see if I can think of 3.

1. Never preheat the oven without looking INSIDE first to see if your mother stored the toaster overn inside! If you do, it will be necessary to call the fire department (no kidding!), and there will be LOTS of smoke damage in the kitchen! This occurred when I was in high school and a friend and I were going to bake something.

2. Never jerk the tractor when you're starting from a stop after everyone has loaded the crates of grapes on the trailor that's attached. Many of the neatly stacked crates will wobble, some will fall off, and your father will in short order get a new driver for the tractor! (this again, in my teen years, before the advent of the mechanical harvester when all grapes were picked by hand!) I so wanted to drive the tractor and be one of the "boys".

3. When you are a very young child, and your father pulls the car over and gets out to talk with a friend, but leaves the car in drive (this was many, many years ago!) NEVER see what happens if you crawl on the floor and push the gas pedal with your hand because you're too little to reach it with your feet! It will result in major panic for your father (who shouldn't have left the car in drive to begin with, but that's one of his "nevers!"), and also result in you becoming so scared you're liable to wet your pants before you can get back to cry on Mommy's shoulder!

I can't think of 3 but one of my Nevers covers alot:

Never SAY NEVER because we truly don't know what situation we may be in and how we personally will react.  How many times have you heard someone or yourself say OH I WOULD NEVER DO THAT...I did that alot when I was younger and then the NEVER statement I made,..... oh yes indeedy I found myself doing.

3 things--- Let's see
1. Nnever preheat the oven with a plastic popcorn bowl half full of popcorn it melts and causes smoke damage. And don't listen to your insurance man when he tells you that the inc. company will pay you to clean up the smoke damage because it just isn't worth it.

2. Never go mushroom hunting is flip flops because sometimes you can step on a snake and it feels horrible and scares the bejesus out of you. humm that may have been my last time to hunt the darn things too...

3. Never go punch for punch with a brother 5 years your senior because he usually can knock your socks off and takes off laughing. I could beat him on indian leg wrestling though, they didn't call me Thunder Thighs for nothing......

Never play hide and go seek, in a grove of trees, that your dad strung up a hot wire, to keep the cattle in. I even helped him put it up, and forgot about it. Our 4-H group had a party that evening, and it was dark to boot. Next thing I knew, I was horse/shooed over a live hot wire, and it didn't take the other kids long to find me! :) I was screaming my head off! :)

Never forget to let the slack out of a chain when you pulling a Combine with a tractor! Dad was in the combine, and I was driving the tractor, came up to a stop sign, let out the clutch and pow! I looked back to see my dad picking up his false teeth off the floor of the combine, and he looked like a Pitt-Bull, and shouting something at me I cant repeat here. I never stopped once, and was hoping he would cool off before we got to the John Deer dealership.

Never buy your wife a Fry-Daddy for Valentines day!....and the marriage went down hill from there! Got a new wife now, and I know better than to try that stunt again! :)
