    Vacation memories from childhood

    since everyone seems to be in a rather yucky mood today, i thought i would tell a funny story - a friend of mine was just bemoaning the fact that the children of her bosses get to go to on fabulous vacations to prague, italy, vietnam, etc. while we as a child she got to go to the cape during the summer -- i told her my one childhood vacation story -- here it is - does anyone else have a funny/happy memory of summer vacation as a child

    hey, i got a week trip to canada in the 4th grade - ten of us and a german shepard dog in two seats of a station wagon cause the box on the top of the car with the luggage fell off about 5 miles up 95 -- three little brothers young at the time - pissing into a maxwell house coffee can in the car cause we didn't want to stop every three minutes on the 8 hour ride which turned into a 16 hour drive cause we ran into an accident where a tractor trailor fell over on two twin girls and killed them -- we get to canada - my grandfathers home (no running water - outhouse in the back) and someone had left his fridge open and he hadn't been there in a month or so - filled with maggots -- my sister sometime during the week has had a fight with the cousins up the hill -- my grandfather who hated his son percy's wife vera and their kids takes a shotgun out to go get revenge for my sister -- that was about the extent on my vacation as a child -- i don't think i could have withstood another -

    We had "palmetto" bugs - basically giant flying cockroaches - they were everywhere. When I moved to NE and saw one of the cockroaches here I cracked up - they looked like babies compared to these things!Go to fullsize imageOur vacations were to my aunts house on the beach 15 miles away.

    those things are so gross -- i can take most bugs -- i don't get too creeped out by bugs -- but those and centipedes kill me - in costa rica one crawled out of the sink drain -- it was a nice hotel too - and i almost died -- i woke up the so with my scream -- the huge thing crawled back into the sink drain and we put a glass over the hole so he couldn't get out again --

    guess i don't know the difference between a milipede and a centipede - what i'm talking about has a gazzilion legs and is kind of beige -- they usually come in my cellar during wet periods -- i don't remember seeing any in costa rica but there were lots of unknown bugs there - big big bugs

    And the love bugs! They fly around real slow while they are stuck together mating and then

    they die after they mate and stick all over everything.
