    You understand then. So there is hope?

    Maybe . But I have to warn you, you will lose your hair and develop a taste for scotch and cognac on alternating days.

    They're really good kids, but I'm already there with the alcohol.

    Yes, they really are good kids. Wait till they are older, have their own kids and come to your house for a festive occasion. You are sitting around and having a drink with the "kids" and out comes the tales of truth of what they did as teenagers. As a military person, there were times that I was not at home and the little darlings would take my Vette or Harley out for a ride or a car I just restored (70 1/2 Camaro, 64 Impala SS,etc) to show off and occasionally cause a little damage to my toys and the scrambling to get it fixed before the DADA came home. Or the time they almost burned down the barn when we were stationed in CA. Oh the list goes on. I can laugh at it all now. Good luck, my friend

    Oh I am sure. My parents were for the "old country" and pretty strict and we still found out ways to "do stuff" and we too have shared stories with my parents about the things we did. Appreciate it.

    I'll be turning 40 next year. But I've been told I look 25. So I've got that going for me, which is nice...

    Hey guys; love the banter and the info passed on this forum, the Corvette forum and the Harley forum. Never too old to learn from you "whippersnappers" and maybe, occasionally, you get a little help from the old man.
