I had an aunt named Beulah. She was the sister of my dad's mother and she lived at the lake with her husband Arthur. They had a polar bear skin rug made from a bear their son shot in Alaska, backed by thick green felt that had been cut with pinking shears so it had a jagged perimeter about an inch wider than the bear hide. The boy was killed trying to beat a train in his Chevy so I never knew him. I remember the rug though.
If Beulah's hair was red, the dad's mother's hair was not brown, and the bear was not the color of the felt backing, then what color was the Chevy?
The trains will meet at 3:18pm.

That's terrible! The foolishness of youth! But I'll keep quiet about my foolishness.....but the "youth" part would have to be expanded to about age 31. A local paper photographer happened to catch my shinnanigans on film and pasted it on the front page of the paper! Not good McDuff! :(

The big local rivalry high School football game was tonight, the 97th edition of the game, but attendance was limited due to covid, so I had to listen to the game on radio. Usually the attendance at this game is ~30,000, standing room only. Port Neches - Groves (PNG) vs Nederland. Nederland was ahead 21-16, 4th qtr, PNG's ball, 4th down and goal, 7 secs remaining. A short pass to the tight end for a TD, PNG goes ahead 22-21 with 2 secs remaining in the game. A flag is thrown for unsportsmanlike behavior, celebrating. PNG lines up for a 2-point conversion but the QB takes a knee.
The penalty is assessed on the kickoff, so PNG kicks off from their own 25 yard line. A fair catch is made on the kickoff, so 2 secs remain on the clock. The Nederland QB takes the snap and takes off running, ready to lateral, but no one to lateral to, everyone is covered, so he just keeps running, until he was finally tackled at ~ the 25 yl, game over, and PNG wins 22-21. Same 'ol same 'ol for this game. Wow!
I'm old but I'm happy. (Most of the time.)

Not sure if the "streaker" part was aimed at me....if it was: It would have to be me streaking in a 1965 Ford Fairlane sliding on snow in a park - headed toward the river - after I pressed on the gas in a joke, and my passenger said, "You ain't got the guts!" So I kept the accelerator petal down, UNTIL...I stepped on the brake pedal - - TOO LATE....and we slid over the edge of the river-bank to put the front quarter of the Ford in the River, and we had to climb out through the front windows, climb back over the top of the Fairlane to land. People came, Police came, Photographer of the Newspaper came....and finally a tow-truck!

When I saw the photographer I quickly jumped into the tow-truck, hoping the photographer would not seek the name of the fool who raced his car into the river!
