A father passing by his son’s bedroom, was astonished
to see the bed
was nicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an
envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed,
With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and, with
trembling hands, read the letter…
“Dear, Dad. It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you.
I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wanted to avoid scene
with Mum and you. I’ve been finding real passion with Stacy, and she
is so nice, but I knew you would not approve of her, because of all
her piercings, tattoos, her tight Motorcycle clothes, and because she
is so much older than I am.
But it’s not only the passion, Dad. She’s pregnant. Stacy
said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods, and
has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream
of having many more children.
Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn’t
really hurt anyone. We’ll be growing it for ourselves, and trading it
with the other people in the commune for all the cocaine and
ecstasy we want.
In the meantime, we’ll pray that science will find a cure for
AIDS, so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!
Don’t worry Dad, I’m 15, and I know how to take care of myself.
Someday, I’m sure we’ll be back to visit, so you can get to know
your many grandchildren.
Love, your son, Joshua
PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I’m over at Jason’s house. I just
wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the
school report that’s on the kitchen table.
KAYAKING: Skaha Lake "YakSailing" Oct15th2012 - GuyThaLizard's LIVE blog (Posterous)
Join the 90 Day Challenge here: http://guythalizard.bodybyvi.com/challenge
I posted this about 5 months ago and had to re-post it again today, I saw them again today at London Drugs for only $129.00 these are great for kayaking and safety. :)
I have a pair and don’t go on paddle trips without them. If I go out alone I leave the other at home turned on and waiting if there ever is an emergency or if we go out paddling together or in a group we both pack these radios close by and turned on. These are waterproof and also have a LED flashlight built into the bottom. They also have the Weather Band with Weather Alert. With the 56km range it will cover quite a distance on the lake. If anything unexpected happens and we get separated we are always within radio communication. These radios do not need to be licenced and they come with a rechargeable 3.6v battery or will also use 3 standard AA batteries if you run out of power. They are GMRS radios with many channel and code combinations. Safety is important.
These radios came in handy when we were in the Shuswap while kayaking, where one of the paddler’s kayak had overturned and we able to assist and give communication up river as to how we were going to be able to best help out, also on other occasions one of us had an emergancy and had to break away from the group to head back to camp and return later to the group. Cell-Phones do not always have a connection but these radios do not need cell towers and can also all be set to the same channel and codes for group paddle trips and everyone has communication. If you paddle with us or plan to meet up with us we are normally tuned to Channel 3 Code 16.
BestBuy has them for $99.00

My Previous Post:
The other day I picked up a set of waterproof GMRS two-way radios, something I’ve wanted for some time & thanks to birthday bucks from my family encouraged me to go ahead and get them. They will make a great addition to our paddle trips. Managed to test them out last week when we went kayak fishing. Excellent audio clearity, weather band 24hrs a day, 56km range (under ideal conditions) and best of all waterproof and they float. found these Motorola Talkabout MS560 at London Drugs Click here for more info (The US version is much the same but with the repeater function the MR350R).
