    I know I have signed this book once but I have a memory to share that will always stay with me. When I think about this it always makes me laugh. When I was 11 yrs. old I was a prankster. I took Buddy's shoes one time and keep in mind he ironed his socks. I snuck his shoes outside and cracked two eggs and put one egg in each shoe. I placed them outside in the hot sun. After a while I brought them back in and placed them back where I got them. Early the next morning he put his nice ironed socks on and placed his foot in his shoe. He woke us all up yelling about me. Oh he was mad then but after a while he laughed about it.I called him rotten foot. This memory will always be with me forever. Hope you enjoyed this and cracked a smile as I always have. Love, Barbara
