Roof Jumping

When I was very young one of my favorite pastimes was to jump off of a roof. My friends and I would find old abandoned houses and climb up on the roof. Wed play up there and then get the nerve up to jump off the highest part of the roof. I did this many times. I was very lucky that I didnt get hurt.

We were more safety conscious. We had a hay bales to land on and a rope to tie around your waist. The rope wasn't to stop your fall. It wasn't tied to anything. It was a leash for the others to grab if you couldn't stop rolling.
We calculated all kinds of horrific deaths like your shin bones ramming through your brain if you missed the bales. These brain storming sessions never once stopped us from jumping but no one ever missed the bales either. :-)

sometimes, the fact that I lived through the dangerous things i did as a child is miraculous. It was way easier to jump off of high things then *LOL*

I know you will. You always do!!! ;) lol

I will catch you! :)

I used to climb the roof of my parents' house and then relax at the top, with my back to the chimney. Wonderful views. I had a ladder to get me to the tiles, but then crawled the rest of the way!

I bet they were!!! lol Id loved to have seen that!

Oh but the mushroom clouds I could send into the sky. lol

They were beautiful...

I can imagine Blue hun!!! That was very dangerous.

Dad had a ton of gun powder..

I would make bombs and cause quite a stir around the neighborhood. : )

Until I blew a barn up..

I settled down some after that bit of trouble.Not to mention the pain of the burns I received...
