Just a good ol' boy, never meaning no harm

Here is a picture of Yellowstone National Park from earlier this summer. No one in blogland has seen this little gem yet. It's fresh off the digital camera, direct to your irises.

It makes me wanna go back so bad. If you haven't been to Yellowstone, it's something you must see before you cross into the empyrean. Essential viewing in this thing called life.

The sheer untouchedness of it just plum amazes me. I struck a few things off my "to do before I die list" this year. I went across country this August - for the second time - and got to see a lot of truly amazing scenery and meet some really nice people, too.

While thinking of how huge my "to do" list is and how much I still have left to do and see, I got to thinking about all of the crazy things that have happened to me. These are things that weren't part of any list until now.

23 crazy things Suley has experienced in his 23 years on this planet:

1. Shot in the face by a paintball gun, sans mask.
2. Reenacted the Spanish-American War with firecrackers.
3. Shot in the side by a dart gun, fired by my father.
4. Made a moonshine still from a crockpot – and drank the moonshine.
5. Chased by park rangers on ATVs.
6. Shot in the ass by a BB gun – twice.
7. Directed and acted in a pro-wrestling version of Beowulf.
8. Built Potato cannons.
9. Fired at by a Potato cannon.
10. Bought a friend’s soul for a nickel.
11. Voted “most likely to take over the world” in high school.
12. Visited the future birthplace of James T. Kirk.
13. Filled an empty waterbed with car exhaust and then used it as a trampoline.
14. Gone completely naked in the woods.
15. Chased by a bear.
16. Rode a Great Dane.
17. Drank my own blood.
18. Went dumpster diving in the dumpster where they caught Eric Rudolf.
19. Stabbed myself with an exacto knife.
20. Clotheslined someone riding a dirt bike.
21.Have seen William Jefferson Clinton, George H.W. Bush, and Robert Dole in person (I even shook Bob’s good Viagra hand).
22. Almost died from hyponatremia at the Grand Canyon.
23. Went cross-country, from North Carolina to the west coast and back – twice.

And that's just the PG-13 stuff.

"Boss Blog" Suley out.
