    Just for fun, name the weirdest, strangest, or downright funny thing you have ever done.
    Can't wait!

    I'll start!

    I went on a Honeymoon with 40 guys! (yep I know, the mind boggles!) long story, my hubby had been a naughty boy before I met him, and after prison, (only silly things, not dangerous)  and stayed at a halfway house on a farm with other guys. So, what did I do? Well, obviously we went there for our honeymoon. it was in Somerset England and was a beautiful place. LOL'
    Now you!
    Bring it on!
    Oh, and I ran away with a Romany gypsy and lived in an old Vardo! (caravan)

        Now Janis, I'll bet that if you thought about it, you could come up with something as silly as I did.

          OK. One time a friend and I began crawling along the floor at a store pretending to look for a contact lens that had popped out to see if anyone would help us look for it. To our amazement, a few people tried.

    Hi Nell,

    I cannot top your story, however, my friend Edie and I in Girl Scout Camp wrapped  little clear water snakes around our wrists and anckles and swam with them in the St. Johns River. We had a lot of adventures growing up. 

    One Sunday, when we were supposed to be in church, we went skinny-dipping in Devil's Den. We were 14 then.

    Take care, and it's great to hear from you.

    In the summer before my senior year in high school, our family became Carnies for a time. We were on vacation, didn't  want it to end,  but had run out of money....
    My very cool Dad said let's work here and hang around a little longer, and so we did! I will never forget the experience.

      Wow! now that sounds really interesting! What did you do as a job there?

    I was the operator for the bumper cars. No worries...I had an hour's training! LOL

      LOL! I would have loved that! I recently went to a Steam fair, where there were all the old showman caravans being pulled by steam engines! I would loved to have done that. My hubby used to work at the Fair too.

    I guess this really isn't strange or all that daring but .... There were a lot of old mining pits in the Ozark Mountains where I grew up. In my mid teens some of us used to get together and go swimming at one place we referred to as "The Pit" because nobody had ever dared swim to the bottom of it. Really original, huh? Anyway one beautiful summer day there were about a Baker's dozen of us all swimming and having fun, and I realized that all but one of us had our Red Cross Life Saving badges. So I guess we were pretty safe as safety goes.

    My mother knew that we were swimming at The Pit, but she didn't know what it was. My dad did, and when he found out I'd been swimming there with her permission, he wasn't happy. But when he realized that most of our crowd were trained "life savers" and compared it to some of his young escapades, he didn't forbid me to go either.

      HIya, It does sound quite scary! I like feeling the bottom of the swimming pool with my legs, so it wouldn't have been very good for me, LOL!
