Kids do the crazyist things
Original post made by tango, Vineyard Avenue, on Feb 26, 2011
With all the stories lately about young people doing crazy things, I thought that I would tell the story about my youngest son taking an inertube down the arroyo in Pleasanton. He started somewhere up stream near the moble home parks. It was winter and the water was high. One of his friends came to me and told me what my son was doing. I got in my car and went to the Main st. bridge by the Pleasanton Hotel, I got there in time to see him floating by. If I hadn't stopped him there I don't know how far he would have gone. He is also the kid that has had more broken bones than anyone else in the family. He is my risk taker child. Kids will be kids and we can only hope to guide them in the right direction and that they live through the teen and young adult years.
