I remember as a child you would burn aerosol cans in your fire barrel where are you burnt your trash and Louise would get so mad because they would explode in the barrel and you would just laugh We would hear it inside the house we always knew it was you it was a happy memory A wonderful childhood growing up as you and Louise and Lisa as my neighbor
