DeanT - Posted - 08/03/2012:  10:58:07



Yep... I'd be right. So sad.

OM45GE - Posted - 08/03/2012:  11:07:56



That is sad.

dat - Posted - 08/03/2012:  12:50:12



hopefully some of the other kids will pay attention

OM45GE - Posted - 08/03/2012:  13:46:08



It would be nice, but if it was substance abuse, those things have a way of shutting out reason.

dat - Posted - 08/03/2012:  14:08:22



I heard rumors that she drank, not all the time, but when she did it was a lot,  I don't know about what else if anything she started.   



she moved away about a year and a half ago.  seems like she ought to still be 12

OM45GE - Posted - 08/03/2012:  16:31:33



It's sad when stuff like that happens. It makes me want to hug my 11 year old and not let go.

DeanT - Posted - 08/03/2012:  17:22:53



I lost some friends back then who didn't survive the party years. 

OM45GE - Posted - 08/03/2012:  19:45:32



Me too. It's odd, but it effects me more now that I have a son. I realize that they were someone's baby.

DeanT - Posted - 08/03/2012:  20:11:57



Yep. Drugs and alcohol isn't choosey. I've got grown daughters (24 and 28) and thank God they don't seem to the party insterest their old man had... 

OM45GE - Posted - 08/04/2012:  04:55:48



I look at my son and can't help thinking about what I put my parents through. It's frightening.

DeanT - Posted - 08/04/2012:  08:06:07



Most of my heavy stuff was done after I left home... my parents never knew



My youngest daughter is a fitness freek... she won't even drink soda, or white bread because of how "bad" it is. Her mom died (drugs alcohol tobacco) when she was 14, and that really impacted her life. 

OM45GE - Posted - 08/04/2012:  11:45:45



Sorry she had to lose her mom so young but it's good that she can learn from the mistakes of others. A lot of people can't.

DeanT - Posted - 08/04/2012:  13:04:45



Her mom left many years earlier, I was too boring, didn't want to party any more. She actually lasted longer than I thought she would.

OM45GE - Posted - 08/04/2012:  16:01:01



My ex died a couple of years ago. No drugs but a very heavy drinker. I hadn't seen her in about 15 years but it was weird when I heard she was gone.

DeanT - Posted - 08/04/2012:  16:10:41



I know the feeling. Mixed. No further explanation needed...

OM45GE - Posted - 08/04/2012:  16:16:43



Yup.

DeanT - Posted - 08/04/2012:  22:25:29



I've got another x on the same path... man I could sure pick em back then...

OM45GE - Posted - 08/05/2012:  16:21:48



I had two that were mighty poor choices. About the best thing I can say is that I didn't have children with them. #3 is working out pretty well.

DeanT - Posted - 08/05/2012:  17:36:41


I went for the trifecta... the boozer, the material girl, the druggie.

OM45GE - Posted - 08/06/2012:  04:13:24



And then came the thought that it was ME making THEM crazy! cool

I've been lucky, my bride put up with me through my drinking years

DeanT - Posted - 08/06/2012:  07:05:57


It was easy for me... I sobered up, went broke, and refused to loose my job by failing a drug test... they left to find bigger idiots than me to play their games :)

OM45GE - Posted - 08/06/2012:  09:17:54



Not especially fun games.

dat - Posted - 08/06/2012:  09:48:33



I tried playing some on the banjo last night, fingers still sore but I somehow got a little picking done,  I'm gonna wait a while longer before I try again

OM45GE - Posted - 08/06/2012:  09:59:38



Has it healed up pretty good? Sometimes the nerves can stay sensitive for a while.

dat - Posted - 08/06/2012:  10:17:43



it still has a way to go, pretty tender right now,   I think they'll do ok

OM45GE - Posted - 08/06/2012:  10:24:05



That's good. Interesting how the body heals itself isn't it?

dat - Posted - 08/06/2012:  10:25:28



as long as you don't cut too deep

DeanT - Posted - 08/06/2012:  10:32:02


did I miss something you get injured?

dat - Posted - 08/06/2012:  10:52:11



not bad, I just got a little closer to a tablesaw blade than I should have, took off the skin on my pointer and middle finger on the tips of my left hand

DeanT - Posted - 08/06/2012:  15:46:39


You could alway play your banjo with a bottle neck for a few week... hope all heals quick!

OM45GE - Posted - 08/07/2012:  04:50:18



I cut the entire nail off my left index finger on a commercial paper cutter. It took about two months before I could fret with it. I played a lot of open tuning guitar three finger.

DeanT - Posted - 08/07/2012:  06:53:36


Our bass player used those little finger tip rubbers when he hurt his fingers.

dat - Posted - 08/07/2012:  09:01:15



I don't believe those would work for me, at least not yet, I still can't put much pressure on the fingertips even with a band aid on to cover the ends

OM45GE - Posted - 08/07/2012:  09:21:58



Sounds like rest is the right approach for now.

dat - Posted - 08/07/2012:  09:59:32



you're probably right, but I had to try anyway just to test it out

DeanT - Posted - 08/07/2012:  12:25:36


rest and beer

dat - Posted - 08/07/2012:  12:43:55



or rest, not so much beer anymore,     we are going to the Guadalupe river towards the end of this month though, I'll probably drink a few beers then

DeanT - Posted - 08/07/2012:  13:40:22


bring an extra inner tube for the beer keg

dat - Posted - 08/07/2012:  13:45:52



there was a time that the beer cooler inner tube was my most favorite spot to float

OM45GE - Posted - 08/07/2012:  15:20:54



We do that off the boat on the lake. Cooling and relaxing.

DeanT - Posted - 08/07/2012:  16:07:01


don't get sun burned

OM45GE - Posted - 08/08/2012:  04:36:32



Nope. I've had skin cancer and am a dedicated sun block user. Later this month I'm going out to the Bonneville Salt Flats with a friend to try and set a motorcycle speed record. Sun block city!

dat - Posted - 08/08/2012:  05:42:10



Good luck on the flats.      I'll bet the sun shines from all directions out there

OM45GE - Posted - 08/08/2012:  06:21:25



Yep, they warn you to put sun block UNDER your nose and chin because the salt reflects the sun so strongly. cool

DeanT - Posted - 08/08/2012:  06:55:42


When you are out at the flats, say hi to Tom Hanna. My wife works for him. He goes every year

dat - Posted - 08/08/2012:  08:13:05



THERE AIN'T NO PLACE THAT THE SUN DON'T SHINE OUT THERE

DeanT - Posted - 08/08/2012:  09:29:28


that would make for a bright porta potty

dat - Posted - 08/08/2012:  09:40:45



probably need an air conditioned porta potty

 Does he go for the Bub Motorcycle Speed Trials? If so, what does he run for a bike?
