    Always had a thing for fireworks when we were kids....I would collect deposit bottles, cash them in, and take the subway down to Chinatown, returning with "mats" (80 packs of 20 in each pack, 1 1/2-inchers) of Black Cats and Yankee Boys, rockets of various sizes, and of course, a nice big bag of M-80s (my favorite)….those suckers were powerful, dangerous, and LOUD ! :)

    Let's see ...

    -- My mom and dad having a screaming match culminating in her throwing a full wineglass at him (he ducked).

    -- My folks going away for the weekend and my teenage sisters throwing a huge party during which I (11 years old) got thoroughly gassed and several hundred dollars' worth of property damage was done.

    -- Smoking stolen cigarettes with my JD friends down by the river.

    -- Friday night street racing on the highway that led out of town.

    -- Painting the fence and getting paint on my new T-shirt, causing the old man to remark, "You don't have the brains to pound sand, do you?"

    -- My mother getting buzzed with the neighbor ladies on Valium and Gin & Tonics and collapsing in hysterics as I arrived home from school.

    -- My sisters getting caught sneaking out to smoke pot (with boys!) late at night.

    -- Guests getting drunk and behaving boorishly at my folks' cocktail parties and my folks refusing to be outdone.

    -- Notes sent home from school about me hanging out with "bad influences".


    It wasn't all My Three Sons and The Brady Bunch, you know!
