Oh mine were from all the stories that I heard that occurred before I was born and they were cool afterwords. I could never be like them.

I remember my mama talking about once she encouraged her brother in law to make a Dukes of Hazard jump of part of the road that was missing. I asked him about it after she has passed away and he said my mama was a little firecracker back then not scared of anything.

My dad was funny as hell, he could crack off one liners and never break a smile.

Your parents sound so much like mine was. My dad used to stand in the parking lot at the stores talking to people and when they would walk away I would ask who they were and he would say "Not a clue, but they needed someone to talk to at the time".

My mama knew her way around the kitchen with her eyes closed. She could cook for 100 people and not break a sweat or lose concentration.

My father's father got religion and moved to a farm in Tohellandgone, Utah, and Grandma left him. When he was in third grade he carried a bullet to school and the teacher blew a gasket. (They had gun control freaks then too.) So he stopped going to school. In those days, whatever you got from the teacher, you got worse from your dad, so he didn't go home either. They found him in the woods a week later. He said he just didn't want to be around people like that.

He departed his father's household at age 13, hitched a ride across a state line, and got a job as a construction laborer. At age 21 he married a 15 yo girl. For a while he manufactured lead figurines which he plated with copper. Competition from the new plastics put him out of business, so he opened a lead mine in the desert and ran it by himself for a long time.

Every detail of this story is a crime now. Unfortunately, he became a parent with no idea how a parent was supposed to treat kids. My father was a legend, but there was nothing cool about him.
