I was extremely fortunate. Many of the guys that I was good friends with in high school are still around, and we're still close. A couple of these friends are part of a group we called "the guys." We were a lot of fun, we fished together, played driveway basketball nearly everyday during the summer, and just generally had a great time. We were fiercely loyal to each other & still probably would be. If a member of the "the guys" did something to irritate or somehow turned his back on us, he was fair game. Getting his house toiled papered was the least of his worries. We'd play a game with him called "Lights Out". WOOD18 could tell you about that one, we'd invite the offender over & explain the situation to him & how he had gone wrong, then flip off the lights off & we'd lock up and make 'em remember not to do it again. We were all best friends, but we'd beat the sap out of each other occasionally. I had it done to me a few times too. We never really hurt anybody, just a few pop-knots. Then we'd all go outside & play catch or do something else silly. 1 of these guys is now my fishing buddy, numero uno WOOD18. We talk to each other nearly everyday. Another one of the guys is a coworker. We see each other nearly everyday. We still get on each other's nerves occasionally, but since he's now about 340 lbsoooh: we let it slide. Some of the other fellas have gone on to bigger & better things & we've lost touch, but 3 of my childhood friends are still very close to me. Has anybody else been blessed like this?
