There was an old man who lived by a forest. As he grew older and older, he started losing his hair, until one day, on his deathbed, he was completely bald. That day, he called his children to a meeting...
He said, "Look at my hair. It used to be so magnificent, but it's completely gone now. My hair can't be saved. But look outside at the forest. It's such a lovely forest with so many trees, but sooner or later they'll all be cut down and this forest will look as bald as my hair."
"What I want you to do..." the man continued. "Is, every time a tree is cut down or dies, plant a new one in my memory. Tell your descendants to do the same. It shall be our family's duty to keep this forest strong."
So they did.
Each time the forest lost a tree, the children replanted one, and so did their children, and their children after them.
And for centuries, the forest remained as lush and pretty as it once was, all because of one man and his re-seeding heirline.
****Groan now or groan later. You will groan!

Some of the best yet! The kid on the Big Wheel with a gun. That was my old neighborhood. Additionally on any Fall afternoon or weekend, you could see a couple of 15 year olds, walking through the neighborhood with Shot Guns. If anyone said Anything, it was, " Good luck Hunting..."...JJ

Yes! My friends and I would walk down Main Street with our shotguns to hunt on the river. When we were old enough to drive we’d take our guns to school after we hunted before class!
 
Those were all really good, Ray. Lots of LOL'ing! The Wrench, Drunk Monkey and the Hearing Aid were hilarious. Thanks again for these. Great start to the weekend.

My nephew just bought a new double cab pickup, I asked him if he really thought he could reach the gun, in the gun rack, from the drivers seat.

Yeah, things were a little different then.
I remember at 14 - 15 I could get .22 ammo and shotgun shells at the Western Auto in town no questions asked.
A country market (called a convenience store nowadays) would sell shotgun shells singly to us.
Got most of my rabbits in my teens.
This was small town Indiana in the 60s....

Western Auto and the Sear Robuck catalog. Didn't know anywhere else to shop.

In PA, back in my day, I could buy any Ammo' when I was a Kid.
However PA Hunting rules said age 12-13 must be accompanied by a "Parent or Guardian" when hunting.
And Age 14-15 must be accompanied by an "Adult".
Couldn't Hunt alone until 16 years of age.

They probably had the same rules here but no one paid a lot of attention. We were out in the country.
I didn't do any "hunting" until I was 16 or so anyway. Just killed a lot of tin cans....
