Not only do we have rabbits we also have a huge fence running up the middle called the Rabbit Proof Fence.

What a fun piece, Karen! Is it a large piece? I would imagine. How it must change in different light.

Getting back to Adillo303's question of 5/08 (I haven't revisited this thread in days) No, the truck was a ford F250, 351 engine, duel gas tanks, snow plow, lift kit, 4x4, w/airhorn. My toy. I got rid of it when I came down here, but used to drive down here 2 times a year, knew alot of truckers from my job, and would cb all the way down (1500 miles), only stopping for a catnap in Roanoke Rapids, N.C., and gas, of course. The truckers would tease me and say, "hey Jersey, what cha doin down here with that snowplow?"
(only the frame was on of course-no blade)
I'd say "see. Shows how much you know, it's a sand plow".
Well I stopped saying that when I parked in a gas station parking lot (sand) and even in 4 wheel couldn't get out.
The truck was so front heavy I had to be pulled out.
I am glad I don't have to pay for the gas to fill it today.

Pacanis, no, no scateboarding since the originals in the '60. The boards nowadays are 2-3 times wider and alot longer than the ones we had. We never did the stunts they do today either. SCARY STUFF!

The ones we used to make from those metal roller skates that clamped to our shoes?

Oh, funny, funny. No, now those are called rollerblades and have a single row of wheels. I can't handle them, but I can ice skate. Go figure!

Funny story about a skateboard. I was helping our youth group with a "garage sale" fundraiser in our church gym. One of the guys had a skateboard and I told them how I used to love skateboarding but they were a lot different then. The guys convince me to get on this one and they will hold me up just to see the difference. Well, they let go for about a half a second and I go over backwards and hit my head on the cement. The only thing really hurt was my pride. Moral of this story - don't let crippled middle aged women on skateboards.

Ouch, ouwee, ouch! So sorry! I'd be tempted too! Not crippled yet, but I bet I'd wind up that way.

See, pacanis, there are other dinos out there beside me. We may be fading fast, but don't under-estimate us quite yet.

The older I get the more I become myself!

Don't worry quicksilver, I am not THAT crippled, just some arthritis back then - it was before my leg decided to give me major problems. But yes, us "old fogees" still have some youth in us yet!!!!!!
