I had been diving and working for a little while when I told my mom I was joining the Navy. I still have the straight jacket they put me in first before the burlap bags the second time. The rock hurt this time. If anyone needs to borrow it let me know.
That's the road I traveled. I got the same from my folks. Before I married my first wife she told me no more diving. I replied, "See ya!". Should have left then, would have saved me a lot of grief. Like Allan, I too am still alive. Lol.simonbeans wrote: ↑Thu Apr 09, 2020 11:49 amYes, really great your Dad was a diver. I remember when I was 15 and told my folks I wanted to take lessons to scuba dive, they had a fit. You want to kill yourself? was the reply. We will not take you they said, (nearest dive shop was 12 miles away.) I had to wait till I got my driver’s license at 16. Still alive, folks!!
