My leopard geckos
I woke up in the morning on my birthday, i got an amazing breakfast of eggs and pancakes in a smily face. We went in the car for a car drive, i fell asleep on the way to our destination.
I found out that i fell asleep on my seatbelt which gave me a mork on my forehead when i woke up. I woke up and we were in a petsmart parking lot for some reason. So i asked my mom,” why are we in a pet smart mom?”
“For your birthday present my love” my mom replied
We walked in the store and we were greeted with a dog barking at us. He was just a little morkie just trying to find out what we were. We got to the reptile section and my mom said,” Which one u want honey?” I was confused so i asked,” WHAT?!” and we looked at all the reptiles we looked at the lizards and i choose them because they were just so cute! And i choose the best one of them all! WE got some cool stuff for him to like rocks, sticks, logs, and sand. We walked towards the cashier and we scanned everything and i remembered that we need to get i tank, i rushed towards the tank section and i got a 50 inch tank for $50 i rushed towards my mom so we can buy it. We bought all of they stuff for him and we walked towards the car and drove to my new reptile loving life. We got home, we decided to name him tippy because he was all back with just 1 little dot of white on the end of his tail. We set up his tand with the stuff we bought him. We put tippy in the tank and he rushed towards one of the rocks and made himself at home.
That made me think of the time when my cousin had a lepard lizard and I held it for the first time.
I liked the part when you got your bog, it reminds me of getting my bog for Christmas
Crashing my dirt bike with my friend on the back of it.
It was August 6, 2015 when I crashed my dirt bike, with my friend on the back of it. How we crashed is because of bald tires, and my back tire kicked out around a turn. My friend on the back of it went flying off in the air for about ten seconds and hit the ground hard. When I went flying off I went over the handlebars and hit my body off a tree and sliding across the dirt into a large bolder. After that I layed there for a few seconds and so did my friend. When my friend and I got up from laying down you could still see dust in the air and you could smell gas leaking out of the dirt bike from either the fuel pump or I might have cracked the gas tank. When the dust cleared up fully I picked the dirt bike up and it actually turns out that there was a big hole in the engine casing, the carburetor was all out of place, the gas tank had a big crack in it, and it also had a dent in the side of it. I also assumed that it landed on the rock that it was right next to. While I was looking over the dirt bike to see what was wrong with it my friend was picking up all the pieces that fell off it when it hit the ground there were pieces scattered everywhere the piece that was the farthest away was like ten to fifteen feet away from the dirt bike. Also I forgot to mention that the hand guards broke off. After my friend picked up all the pieces that were scattered I walked the dirt bike back to my house and my friend carried the parts that fell off. When we got back to my house my mom came running outside and said, “What happened, are you guys ok?” And we both said, “Yes.” She brought us to the hospital any way just to be positive that we both were ok. When we went into the hospital my mom had to call my friends mom for her to come and fill out paperwork for the hospital to have for him to get checked out. When we actually got checked out they took x-rays to make sure nothing was broken on my friend and on me. When the doctor looked at the x-rays very carefully you could see that my friends nose was broken, but still in place. The doctors came out and said, “Since your nose is still in place we don't need to do anything on it.” After words my friends mom took my friend back to his house, and I went back to my house as well. If you ever ride something that requires gear for example a dirt bike, or a quad, or even anything I recommend for you to put gear on before going riding.
This story he minds me of when my sister went on my bike and crashed into the parch with out stoping. overall amazing story.
that sound like i did not feel good.
it did not
The Dog Bit
The day I got bit by my dog. That day was not fun, here’s what happened I was messing with my two dogs. My one dog bit my hand and I didn't feel it. I put some ice on it and my mom drove me to the hospital. The doctors had to put an IV in my arm but I did not feel that either. So that keep me at the hospital to make sure that I was ok. The food was really good theo . But I was there for 4 days. The cool thing was that they had a ps2 and it was fun to play, they had fun games. My mom stayed with me the whole time and that was nice. My brothers came to see me we played games and that was cool. That all might sound fun it was but at the same time’ every night they had to wake me up and take my blood which I do not like taking blood. I don't mind seeing blood but when the needle is in me, that’s a whole different story. My nurse was very nice to me shy let me do what I wanted and I could not get up all the time so shy asked me if I wanted something and she was nice. The B.L.T is like my favorite food and gass where I found out about the b.l.t it was when i was in the hospital. I was hooked up to a IV all that is itself is not fun but my dog is a good dog. He did not mean to do that and he felt bad. He knew what he did the wrong, but he still did not mean it. But like I said I did not feel a thing. I think adrenalin was pumping. I didn't have to what is the waiting room. But they did have a tv and my favorite channel cartoon network and abc fam. I remember it like it was yesterday. It's a cool store to tell and i have a scare from it and and people ask what happened and i tell that the store.
that happened to me one time with my cousins dog on my leg
I was confuted in the beginning because the timing was really weird and you didn't put enough transition words in it...other than that it was ok
The trip to the tennessee land editor max simsic and miss andreson
By Cory Crawn
On a summer day in 2008 we left our house. We were on our way to tennessee driving down the
highway. It was horrible because we always had to find a place to stop, to go to the bathroom,
every hour or two. We left in the afternoon so we also had to stop so my father which was the
Driver, could sleep. We also had to stop somewhere to eat after we all slept.
We started on the road again,we all got told to look over to the right from my mom because to the right was the place that we were staying at. The hotel we were staying is right next to the river, so since I'm young enough, I could fish without a licence. I went fishing there but didnt catch anything.
Everyone got ready, we went to another town. We found a dinner and we went to another town walked around that historic town and we found a dinner. We went to another town walked around that and then we walked around some more then went back to the hotel and slept for the night, then got up and ate breakfast that morning then we went to nashville We wanted to go into the grand ole opry but at the time they were closed. Then we left and went to a bbq place to eat dinner. We walked around a little more then the next day we went to the smoky mountains. We also went to dollywood and went on rides. We went to the hotel after to sleep then the next day we left to go to virginia for our cousin's wedding which was the next day
FUN IN THE SNOW
I was at my uncle's house. He was having a party at his house when he asked me if I wanted to go snowmobiling. At first I did not know what to say, I was just happy that he asked. I needed to ask my mom, she did not really care at all and told uncle John “ yeah I will be happy to go.” My aunt and my mom mad arrangements for me to go with uncle John. The day before we had a lot of snow almost a foot. The next day I got a text from uncle John saying, “Do you want to go snowmobiling to day.” I was like, “HIT ME UP.” He told me what time and I was so excited. It was my first time going. In between the time 9:00- and 1:00 I was sled riding with my neighbor shane. I when inside for a little bit so I could dry my winter clothes, get ready for my uncle to come and pick me up. When he got to my house I ran down the stairs and got right in his FORD F 150. We got to uncle John's parents house, Johnny was waiting for us playing in the snow. The sleds were all ready for us to ride. Uncle John was turning on the snowmobile I was going to ride and then he turned his on. He showed me the path I should take for me to praktis on first. I got the hang of it after a couple of laps then we went on the little lake that is right next to his parents. We took a little break before we went in the woods. It was finally time to go back in the woods out to the corn field but this time it was my uncle, cathey,and I whent. I whent 75 mph and my uncle went 100 mph, went right past me. We went from one corn field to another and I got stuck. He had to get me and cathey out and then we went back to the first corn field. We were there for a little while, it was getting really dark so we called it a night and when back home. My mom picked me up around 9:00. Once I got to my house I took a shower and watched some netflix and went to bed. The next morning I told my friends my experience.

Sadly the whole trip to florida wasn't sunshine and rainbows, mostly because
of the trip there...but there were a couple other interesting parts as soon as we got there. I couldn't even imagine being the person driving the car. My mom and I had been planning this trip across the coast for about two months now, and she forgot the most important thing. She forgot to book a hotel somewhere for us to sleep in.
We both decided to go in the middle of spring because it would have been harder to go if my mom had to pull me out of school for a week. This was a good idea, not only because of that reason; but also, so we would have a better time at the beach because of how hot it was.
But as I said my mom forgot a hotel so that good time at the beach was definitely well deserved. It seems like the everyone else in the world decided they wanted to go to FL the same time we did. Don't get me wrong I love traveling, but not when everyone else wants to travel. Because there was more people on the road, there were more rooms taken in hotels. Every hotel we passed was booked.
We had to drive all the way from Georgia...from New Jersey!!! Luckily we finally found a hotel that had four more rooms left. But it reeked of rotten eggs. That's the only thing I remember about that state...is the stench. It was almost unbearable, holding her nose mom said, “The smell comes from the marshes”. I then remembered that I smelled this before, this was the smell of sulfur. It took a minute to get to sleep because of the smell but I eventually passed out because of exhaustion.
After the well deserved rest and McDonalds on the beach we head out for Florida. After about one more hour of driving we got to Orlando, which was the residential zone we were staying at. My moms friend lives in Orlando so we stayed at there house. We were planning to go to Coco Beach together but the car broke down as soon as we pulled out of the driveway! So I had to wake up before dawn and go to the beach then. But it was pretty cool to be one of the only people on the beach. After I put a towel down I fell asleep once again with the ocean waves as background.
One day my dog passed away and i had no idea what to do he was my best friend and my only dog. so after a couple months my parents decided that I could get a new one so we went to Father John's animal rescue. And looked at the dogs we saw a lot of amazing dogs and I really like them but my mom said we needed to get a puppy so I could train her myself. so we had to wait a couple more months 4 the puppy breeder to give Father John's puppies and then we had to go back with all of our other dogs to get tested So we met all the docs after much consideration we picked Mia the boxer Lab mix we love to but we didn't like her name So when you're driving her home we picked out the name to Kipper and we went to Tractor Supply to get a bed food and dog bowls for her
When we got home she immediately ran up to my room and jumped on my bed so we decided we set up all of her stuff in my room When she was all set up I started playing with her and teaching her to sit she learned very fast but she still needed extra help so we decided to take her to puppy School and we passed bold years she was a very good dog when she was a puppy and she still is now that she's an adult as an adult I mean 1 years old But she really looks grown up because she is going to get no bigger but she's a great dog and a great friend
One day my friend came over and we decided to go in the woods like we normally do but this time it was different me and my friends went further out than we ever did you were out in the middle of the Woods we usually have Fields by your house but right here we saw no fields who are playing by a tree when we heard a gunshot we were in a place that was leased out for hunting and we got scared so we started running and we bumped into one of the hunters he said you shouldn't be here and we said we don't know where we are so he decided it would be a good idea to bring us home so we got his truck and I drove back to my house if it wasn't for that Hunter we would be lost out there my mom was very mad can I could not go hiking 4 week but when that we passed I went outside immediately and went around the lake 5 timse when my friends came over again we decided to go out again but this time not that far I've learned a very valuable lesson don't go well you're not supposed to
I remember when I was 10 I got my first airsoft gun it was snowing out so me and my three cousins went outside and had an airsoft war but before we had the airsoft war we build a big igloo me and my cousin Gavin were on a team we hid in the igloo my two other cousin walk buy me and my cousin Gavin shot both of them then we set up 8 targets my cousin Gavin got two of the targets my other two cousins missed I went I only got four then I tied my sled to my cousin quod and he took off and hit a wooden ramp we built a long time ago then i hit the ramp I went flying off the sled I hit my knee on a tree I dislocated my my knee my older cousin mike grabbed my knee and pop it back in it hurt then we took the cover of his pool and set up a trampoline and and jump in the water it was freezing then we dug a hole in the snow and put bean bag chairs that we never use and jumped in the hole the we took cushions and put them at the end of the hill my cousin Gavin went down hit the ramp we build out of snow and landed on the cushions I went I almost miss the cushions then I went again I stood on the sled with two feet like a snow board and I flipped and landed on my back I landed on the cushions.
