At the age of 4, I drowned and was revived by my dad. As a kid, he was a Boy Scout and remembered his emergency training, thank goodness.

Health is much better thank you. Our Maddy is now almost 9 months old. We are trying to work out what to do for her first birthday. Not sure but we will take lots of pictures. What did you do for your kids first birthday?

Hope you are well & give your dog a big kiss for us. Are you ready for the mad xmas rush. We will be coming to LA & New York early next year. We will get the plane diverted to your house. Please make sure your driveway is clear for landing!!!

Always good to hear from you. Have a awsome Xmas & 2016!!

I thought my cousin's goldfish was dead...so I flushed it down the toilet right after I let her cat claw at it...I felt so bad

Kinda pathetic I know, but I had a pretty easy going childhood

My sister and I left our mother sleeping on a bed at a furniture store. I think it was Ashley's Home and Furniture Store. It was pretty hilarious but then it wasn't so funny after that. But still, it was fun! :-) But we were pretty young, around 6 or 7. She and I didn't know any better.

I shot my brothers foot with a slingshot, with a sharp rock on it. Turns out it stuck to his foot. Had to go to the ER to get it pulled out. I was around 6 years old when it happened.. I still feel ashamed and satisfied at the same time..

I had a pretty awesome and fortunate childhood. The worse thing I remember is losing my grandfathers. As for what I don't remember is around the age of 3, I drank lighter fluid for the grill. My dad rushed me to hospital and I got treated right away. FYI lighter fluid will not kill you but it can cause permanent brain damage. The only reason why I got to the hospital on time is a cop saw my dad run a stop sign when he tried to pull my dad over he lifted the can of lighter fluid and pointed at me. The cop then escorted us to the hospital.

I am so sorry to hear that. I lost both mine while I was in my 20's and I still wish I could give them call.

In third grade, I broke a girl's leg by accident. This girl also happened to be the daughter of the Youth Pastor at my church, and she was in a "relationship" with one of my best friends, so I got a lot of hate afterwards

When I was 3 I think, I drowned and was revived by my uncle Bobby. I don't have the exact details but that's all I remember.

Ok. What happen with your cousins?

It was our own little secret. No one else knows about it even to this day. As for my cousins, it's never been brought up since and was just forgotten about.

Ok. 25 years ago I would have sought revenge on those two over and over. I'm glad u didn't.

Nothing happened except I was separated from the love of my life until I sailed out to sea and came back 8 years later. Then  I decided that it was time for me to head on back to the USA and so I did and then I met the love of my life . . . Again. She said where have you been all these years and I said that I had to go out to sea to clear my head. She asked why and I told her that I had made a few mistakes in my childhood. She then continued to press these questions in my face. I told her that I made  the same mistakes over and over again. I think she forgave me after that.

Signing off,

Hmmm, I broke my arm, fell off my deck, got a brick in the face, sliced my finger in half, dropped a knife on my toe, fell down the stairs and i ended up ripping my upper lip.... Plenty more where that came from
