Hey y'all, thankx for posting on my last (kitchen) thread. I enjoyed 'going back' in time in each one of your post. So many suppressed memories!!! Well, I was telling you in that thread about my neighbors dad measuring his shag carpeting with a ruler to show off the length, remember? Well the nuttiest thing that the whole neighborhood ever saw was when his dad hand-shoveling the mounds of snow off of his large front lawn. This is in Montana in the middle of winter, mind you but it was on a clear day without snow being in the forcast too soon, I guess. After he shoveled that snow off his whole lawn, (dumping it on the street) he spray painted the lawn green. You should have seen the cars come screeching to a halt on their way by just to stare at this one odd (standing out like a sore thumb) green lawn! Looking back now, it kind of reminds me of Darrin McGavin in "A Christmas Story." Those are precious memories now. What are your unusual childhood memories?
