Have been sitting in the office in the dark playing internet hearts. The grandkids are here, and the youngest boy's new thing is to sneak up behind you and scare the crap out of you.[:D]

I had gotten up and walked down the back hall into the kitchen to get a drink of water and caught him out of the corner of my eye heading down the front hall towards the office on his tiptoes.[:0]

I looped around and slipped up behind him as he was trying to peek through the door to see where I was. I poked him in the ribs with my finger and yelled "Boo".[}:)]

He screamed like a little girl, and now he's mad at me![^]

My reservation has been confirmed! I'm bound for the hot side of you know where![:D]

    Naw...you wait til he gets you back....then you'll know you are just getting ready for your real test. If you punch him between the eyes (like your reflexes will want to) then you have a heated future.

    He wanted to have a squirt gun fight last week and I filled mine with ice water out of the refrigerator. He's still mad about that one too.

    Last year I kept telling him he had his shoes on the correct feet, but he had his left sock on his right foot, and his right sock on his left foot. He would pull his shoes off and swap his socks.

    That one worked for over a week until his mom ratted me out![;)]

    They don't care, a few Sundays ago after church the youngest one tripped me (on purpose) heading across the parking lot. Ruined a perfectly good set of suit pants when I tore them hitting the ground. They all laughed like it was the funniest thing they had ever seen.

    I will get even![}:)]

    I will store that one in the memory banks. My next plan is to give him some ice cream (his favorite desert) with salt on it. Little toot!

    Just before sending him home to mom, make him a nice big cup of hot chocolate, but liberally lace it with ex-lax. That should even out the torn pants! [}:)]

    best time i got my son was when he had been scareing the crap outta his lil sis...
    they had been watching fright flicks all day around halloween when this happened, so i waited till they were just about asleep...
    it so happened i had smashed my hand pretty good at work the week before and the middle 3 fingers were nice blue/purple/yellow-white, with nails starting to come loose!
    i crept up the stairs and crawled on the floor so he wouldnt see any shadow or movement, then from the floor along side his bed i slipped that mangled hand up just beneath his head in a patch of moonlight... and grabbed at his throat!
    he jumped, saw that corpse-like hand and screamed so loud the neighbors accross the street came out to see what was going on!
    told him through the tears of laughter that now he know what it is like to get scared.
    last time he tried to scare sis for a LLOOOoong time.

    Sorta like my recent "trip" Daniel H...
    concerning 'coming or going'.

    "God may stll have a use for us, so here we may stay...
    Too,
    the devil may not want us, cause we might mess up his play..."


    All these young/new voices around GB,
    seein' you as the calm, sedate, and well-respected grandpa...
    Coupla of us 'round here... have seen up close, your 'evil' side...

    Devil see you comin' Marine,
    he'd be sneekin' out the back door... [;)]

    BTW, dad said to give you his best,
    he'll never forget "that letter".

    In fact, his hearing is sooo bad now that I write him about every other week. Pleases him to no end. Helen says he reads them three or 4-times over several days. Then he phones me on the weekend and replies. And no, we don't discuss politics...[:0]

    The conversation is a hoot, 'cause my hearing not a lot better than his...so here we are father and son, 92 and 61...hollarin' at the top of our voices...
    both saying 'HUH' about every two sentences... [:D]

    But we communicate!
    His spirit is still high, livin' life to its fullest...
    and he's still out before daylight in robe, underwear and rubber boots ( quite the picture now ),
    feeding the pigs and chickens...[^]

    Ol' buzzard may outlive me and you both...

    Nephews (2 boys) were into really scaring people when they were about 11 and 9 respectively. They'd come up with these elaborate plans to really SCARE folks. After they'd pull one of these on someone they'd sit there and whisper and giggle about it. One time they made the mistake of tryin' that crap on me. Payback is a B**$@# !!

    They had pulled some stuff earlier in the day; was the source of their mirth all day. In a completely serious moment after pulling up to the curb in my car, I left them both inside while I went into the house to get my wallet. It was dark out. As soon as I exited the car I dropped down and crawled around the car to the other side out of sight. They had not even seen me.

    They were both inside yuckin' it up. Once around the other side I got by the passenger door, my face up real close to the window, and moved up into view...real fast and just stayed there. They didn't even see me at first. When they turned around and saw me, I ROOAAAAAARED!

    The oldest one screamed so loud you could hear it a block away. He then trampled his brother scrambling across the car to the drivers side, plastered up against the far side of the car...screaming. He screamed and cried for about 5 minutes. Had to calm him down.

    Their scarin' people days were over!

    Forget the ex-lax.

    When my brother and I were 5 and 4 respectively, we got into an industrial-sized bottle of Keopectate. We pretended it was coffee. We drank the entire bottle.

    I don't think either of us took a dump for at least a week.

    When I take my daughter to the playground, there is a playset that has 2 seats on the edge of the set. She asked what game it was and I told her that it was a very hard game and that I wasn't sure she could do it. Me and her had to each sit in a seat and see who could be the quietest the longest. lol.

    She is still young enough that I can get away with that when I need a rest (all too frequently).

    Then pulling a knife on the young'n that tries to scare ya must be worse yet.[;)]
    Long ago, when working evenings, I came in and my son thought it'd be a good idea and try to scare dad. He hid behind the door, and just when i was inside and closing the door he yells BOO! I had the balisong to his face before he got to OO. That was near 25yrs ago, and to this day he says "You don't scare dad!!".[}:)]
