Thanks Nicky but my Daddy had that house built, it was our personal childhood home, mine and my siblings, it was a private residence. He worked real hard for it. Added onto it over the years. It wasn't part of the projects, not that there's anything wrong with that.

My life is also boring and dull most of the time. I prefer not having too much excitement because things tend to get out of hand. Seems like I attract the wrong type of excitement leading to situations that become out of control. My time is filled with hobbies so I don't end up in jail for being in the right place at the wrong time. One example of things getting out of hand is when I jumped out of a vehicle during a high speed chase. My friend's cousin came and picked me up in a 90's 4 door Cadillac. It was winter and cold when I noticed the reason why the window didn't roll up was because it was broken out. After realizing this I also noticed that the ignition was broken. The guy driving saw a police car in the distance and freaked out. The car was also on a spare doughnut tire because they had hit a curb earlier. The cousin and his brother were in the front and I was in the back seat. After 130 MPH on the freeway the driver exited the freeway and drove laps around the small town occasionally ramming police cars. I had my hands visible the whole time. Once the driver slowed for a corner I jumped out and was taken down by several officers even though I didn't resist. After explaining the situation the police let me off with a seatbelt ticket. I started to argue that I had to remove my seatbelt to jump out but I realized a seatbelt ticket wasn't so bad. The driver gave a fake name of a brother in law and was deported to Mexico. His relatives brought his ID and information to Mexico and they partied for a couple weeks in Mexico. His cousin we were on are way to see was just as crazy. He was a thief who would steal anything he thought he could get away with. He ended up robbing one of those big box stores after hours. He got put on an ankle monitor got frustrated and put the collar on a cat. He went to Mexico and because he was born there he was not allowed back into the U.S. Now he somehow became management for a bikini football team in Mexico. I am happy to have a boring predictable life. Growing cannabis is boring and predictable done correctly and much better than being threatened by motorcycle gangs in BC because of crazy friends. The local police as well as the cartel people know those old stories. A State Patrol had told me I was famous I told him infamous and famous are not the same thing. Famous usually indicates wealth and success. We did absolutely stupid things like taking window pain acid and jumping off cliffs into the snake river in the middle of the night. The Dude reminds me of these old times. Going to the bowling alley is like a midlife crisis on a budget. A strange place full of lost souls looking for reminders of the past. Makes me want to buy a TransAm and grow a mustache.

Sounds like a wild story from your youth, Ben, in which you were lucky to make it out alive, did you feel more alive while it was happening? And now are happy to feel more, well, subdued and sedate and safe? Do you still feel guilty? That's a bad thing about certain wild adventures in the past. A good thing is learning from them. Did that make any sense, LOL, I'm half-asleep and glad to be, it's the closest I ever get to feeling inebriated. Naturally so without chemicals except for my own naturally produced brain chemicals (which can make one feel kind of high, at times, at lucky times). I like to wake up early feeling drowsy and drunk. A "natural high."

I didn't mean the projects! I meant a project house like one that is a project to fix up! I forget that the word has two meanings. For our Brit friends "the projects" means like a council estate.

No I don't feel guilty for doing crazy things. Time only moves one direction sitting around dwelling on the past rather than learning from it is not useful. Some of us are red button pushers that don't always consider consequences. I make sure nothing is questionable about a vehicle before getting in it. Rebels built the West and part of living out here is feeling free. For about 8 years I didn't have a license and walked probably hundreds of thousands of miles. I lived in Spokane for about 6 years and walked 5 miles each way too and from work no matter what the weather. Deep snow through a blizzard it didn't matter. The jobs I had were low paying retail jobs but it paid the rent. I liked listening to people's stories. One customer I asked "What's going on?" and he would always reply "Time and the River". He always had on a Veteran of Korean War hat and was always calm and seemed content. It just reminded me that we are all trying to swim upstream instead of seeing where time and the river take us.
