any activity that involves vigorous physical or mental activity. Certainly not posting their daily diary on a newspaper website

Learning how to handle a firearm if they don't know, if they do, lots of time using lots of ammo on paper targets, so relaxing to shoot, put on the eye and ear protectors though.

Spend time? Let them squander it.

One thing my kids never dared to say was "I'm bored" They knew I would put them to work immediately.

Give them a BB gun and a utility knife. They will find something to do.

Oh My

Where to start.

There is the part where the brother kills the brother early on.

The world is destroyed except for one family and the animals.

Tons of swordplay and waring and killing and stuff.

Nailing people to crosses and hanging them out to die.

That kind of peaceful and happy stuff?

Kids should spend their time studying the Bible instead of playing stupid and violent video games so this world came become a peaceful and happy place where everyone lives in harmony and cats and dogs get along and people stop murdering little birds with cannons.

Oh, and find out what happened to my blog, Name That Baby, I hate to think of all the children that will be given the default of, "Yo, kid!"

"Sex, Drugs, and rock and roll......."

Upon this advice from counsel, I'll defer to babs & Ian & the rest of the blockheads.

Speaking of kids, University of Kansas Hospital, KUMC, whatever KUPI is called now and Children's Mercy just merged pediatric programs. I can't remember who will get pissed off at this, but some guy always gets mad.

Learn to make cookies and build snow forts!

Hmmm, snow. Maybe something other than snow forts in KS, like duck blinds.

"our resident gun freak beat me to it."

I prefer to think of myself as a weapons enthusiast.

Believe it.

I was going to jokingly say "play with guns- its the only American thing to do" but our resident gun freak beat me to it.

Reading, which was my favorite. But, a lot of my vacation time was spent on the tractor doing various farm operations, or worse, stacking hay or alfalfa bales. Feeding the cattle, that was OK.

Oh, the bane of being a farm kid,,, Actually, the memories aren't bad, that's because I forgot all the bad parts.
