Now, I know that I didn't technically live at the ranch, but I spent the majority of my childhood there :o)
"You know you lived at the Flying H Youth ranch if...
You threaten your kids with a white card
You hate day old donuts because you ate so many of them
You know how to build secret forts out of hay bales
You automatically do the sniff test on all individual sized chocolate milks
You ever hunted skunks at the pig barn
You didn't worry if your kids were out in the woods for hours
You wish your local public school had a rock pile
You know what a slop bucket is
You carefully inspect all forms of bread before consuming
You've ever hunted cats
Your favorite sweatshirt is a back room special
You understand what Hit the Loop means
The thought of going on an 8 or 10 day Survival Hike with food seems wimpy
You ever rode a snowmobile in your slippers
Your favorite gospel song is There is a Light in the Window
You didn't care if your kid shouted Mom, I'm going to the river.
You still have a stash of Y2K wheat and beans
While running baseball bases you keep an eagle eye out for cow pies
The sight of an elk hanging on a swing set while children play inspires joy
You bang the door loudly before going into a back storage room to scare away the cockroaches
Please feel free to forward to any past or present Flying H staff or staff kids or residents. If you think of another one, email me with it and I'll put together a part 2!
