Archery. When I was a kid I was a pretty good shot with a bow and arrow.

I like archery, too. I was totally fascinated w/ Robin Hood. One day I decided I could shoot an arrow over our house from the alley. So I drew the bow back and let fly. The arrow arched upward - and landed in the kitchen window.

Dad had to replace the storm window. It never even dentedthe interior window. So much for using a kid's toy bow, however professional it looked<sigh>.

Never did get much grief for it, tho'<G>>.
