    First of I really hope the victim is going to be alright. Second. You are both way too old for that type of behaviour. Great role models for the young men of today.

    @ CountryGirl. The younger of the two men does not deserve your comment re: role models.

    And Summer hasn’t even started yet!!! It is gonna be a long hot summer! When it gets hot people have less patients and tolerance for BS! I tell people all of the time, the same things you say to a person in the winter you CAN’T say in the summer cause peoples’ patience and tolerance levels are much lower because its HOT! People are more irritable! I’ve not only seen it but i have lived it!!
