Now where was I? Oh yes. Sixteen years old. It was a good year.
- I earned my driver’s license which granted me greater freedom and turned another teenage boy on the road with a two-ton machine.
- I was a junior in high school and on track to graduate early and skip my senior year.
- I had a part-time job working for people who owned sheep. As a grandson of a dairy farmer, the sheep work was easier and the animals simpler to wrangle.
- Girlfriends? No. Prospects were not plentiful in the small community, but there was plenty of time ahead of me. No rush whatsoever.
