I can still remember as an eleven year old going on a
fishing and camping trip with my friends Jerry and Kenny
Day and their uncle. We were camped on the banks of the
west branch of the Susquehanna River next to a cow pasture.
The owner of the camp ground told us that the fence was
only on during the day when the cows were out of the barn.
Well about the third night there I woke up about two in the
morning and had to pee real bad and didn't feel like going
to the outhouse so I went to the bushes behind the tent and
went right on the fence wire which was still turned on.
Well my scream woke up just about everyone in the camp
ground including my friend's uncle who yelled from the tent
"what the hell's the matter" and without thinking I yelled
back at the top of my lung's " I p***ed on the f***ing
electric fence!!!!" Well the entire camp ground was
laughing hysterically at that point and the next day
everyone was trying to figure out who the kid was who went
on the fence. And that's how I got my childhood nickname
"Sparky" and became an electrical engineer and a ham.
