Dusty: So... all you buckaroos... what kind of a story would you like your foster grandpa to tell ya? Boy: Tell us about when YOU were ten years old! Dusty: Oh, I remember my daddy go me a BB gun for my tenth birthday! Man: Happy birthday, son. Dusty: WOW! Thanks! Boy: I wanted a BB gun but my dad said it was too dangerous! Dusty: Can be, but that's why you'd learn gun safety! Anyway... I'd grab my BB gun and my pal Jessie would hop on my handlebars and we'd ride down to the dump... Girl: Get out!! You rote two on a bike without helmets and played in a garbage dump? Dusty: All day, unless we were swimming in the rock quarry! Boy: Wow! Boy: Foster grandpa... didn't they have lawyers then? Dusty: I suppose so, but we kids didn't see 'em!
