At least you can't blame yourself... Some years back, when I was just a little tike, my family and I were fishing for pan fish with small jigs out of our boat. I was sitting with my back to my mother. She whipped her rod over her right should to throw out a line and unfortunately met some resistance. The jig went through my eyelid just under my brow and thankfully narrowly missed my eye. Needles to say, she almost passed out on the spot.

We had to go to the emergency room to have a doctor remove the jig. She still feels bad to this day, though I was fine and actually made my dad take us back to the lake to do some more fishing (although this time with bobbers and very little casting). Unfortunately we did have a camera around and that video is still a crowd pleaser at family get-togethers.

I still think I may have been the one to set the trend of eyebrow piercing.

Last night I called my son's cell from my bedroom and told him I needed help, that my hand was attached to the floor. He didn't laugh He has lost all humor in it.

I can associate with your Mom. Many years ago I had loaded groceries and shut the back hatch to my Saturn station wagon and it didn't come down all the way so I did it again. It was then that I saw my sons eyes start to tear. I had slammed the hatch on his head twice. He actually didn't shed tears. He tried to be all tough! I cried all the way home.

And to any of you wondering if it was the 100mph kid. Yes it was. Maybe he was getting even or maybe I was just getting a headstart!

I do not know why this popped up again but it was a hoot. I think the timing is awesome. Kid qualifies for Nationals and has Mom unhooks him from rug. I think that is why he still lets me fish with him, so I don't tell.

Well that didn't work too well. I have 2 sons not 1 and I love them both. They torture me with mis-placed humor. The younger might be a bit brighter. Doesn't spend all of his money on fishing stuff.

When I was about 5 years old I sat on a fishing lure from my Fisher Price telescopic fishing rod. I don't remember it that much but my mother says it was stuck in my rear through my pants and into the back seat of the car. I guess there weren't car seats back then, at least I don't remember them. She said it was real terrible because she didn't know why I was freaking out in the back seat at first and she couldn't get it out because my pants were in the way. I don't know exactly how she got the hooks loose.

When I was 18 some friends and I went to Ontario to fish one summer and after the long drive home (all night), I dragged my gear into the front hall of my Mom's house and plopped it all down right there and crashed on the couch. Some time later I hear my Mom's poodle (mean old dog) making some awfull sounds and realized that I still had the Rapalas tied on the line and stuck in the hook keepers. Needless to say the trip to the vet was expensive and it took a couple of weeks pay to get right with Mom. The dog still hated me though, oh well she's dead now.
