That depends on whether or not there was a hottie girl you couldn't see all summer.

His favorite trick was to take our 50 lb English Bulldog out into the rain and get him all fired up with a ball and than throw the ball on my bed. I woke up to a wet blob of dog toenails and slobber bouncing on me looking for the ball. It will wake a kid right up.

I had to sit in his office during all the school orientation all the other new 6th grade kids got to see. Once they discovered my dad was Air Force I was a super star to the administration. They saw the big federal tax money the Air Force pays to each school for my education. It was usually way more than any other local student. They would give me a letter for my parents to sign and bug me endlessly until they had it. I did not understand that until many years later. All I knew is I missed all the instructions on going to classes and all the stuff all the other kids knew because their siblings went to the same school. I recovered quickly and fit right in within a week. That fist few days was rough.

That was the year my dad was TDY in Korea so we did not see him except for two days in a year and a half.

Oh, there were a number of girls scatter across all those school years that I always wanted to see. I think I first started to find girls interesting back in 2nd or 3rd grade.

Jim, what are you talking about? I started the cootie epidemic. I remember playing kissing tag in first grade where you chased the boys and kissed whatever part you got a hold of. You know, to give them cooties. For me, it was mostly legs since I bamboozled them when they would climb up the slides. They never seemed to learn that was my strategy.

One of the schools I went to was beyond suckage. Waipahu middle school was by far the worst. I was 50% of the haole attendance. Every single day I had some sort of torment from the local mokes. On Friday it was even worse. Friday is kill haole day. Only one teacher on the campus would help me. The rest did not care. I as a skinny runt but even Chuck Norris can't whip a entire school of upper class-men. It was a horrible year.

My parents were of the generation that you solved your own problems. They did not want to hear about it.

The one great advantages of the 15 inch wheels is cheap tires. I bought new tires for my trip to Utah. The 4 tires delivered to my door was under $350.

i lucked out on these tires... $350, locally, new, still stickered. they were on my shortlist of tires to buy on discounttires.com, but they were discontinued by the time i finished my research (about $600 from discount). then i lucked on the ad, locally, in the exact sizes i wanted. i could not believe it. 225/50/17 up front, 255/40/177 rears, fuzion ZRi. then, the local shop mounted them for $50 total!!! i stopped by today to thank them.

i am totally impressed after my one test ride. so much quieter than the BFG g-sports, night and day difference. good grip, but it is hard to tell as i think they still have the slippery new tire stuff on them. the car doesn't seem to be going as fast because they are so smooth and quiet. i got myself in a spot of overspeed trouble. i misjudged my speed (105MPH getting on the freeway) had to hit the brakes hard.... the back got a bit loose...
