@PO1 William "Chip" Nagel just after I got out of the Navy, before I got a job, I was staying with my parents. They had a courtyard in front of their house that I set up as a mini haunted house. I sat on a bail of hay outside in the courtyard wearing a hooded robe with a scythe and the candy bowl. I would sit perfectly still waiting for the kids to come up to see if it was a decoration, then I would whisper "boo" and they would scream everytime. Some of the parents really didn't appreciate it, but it was in the spirit. Glad it was years ago, nowadays someone would have called the cops.

Can't do stuff like that anymore. Several years ago just before Christmas I hung a bunch of tangled up Christmas lights in our apple tree by the driveway. Then hung a dummy by one foot upside down by them , and laid a tipped over ladder jus below the guy. People would drive down our street and slow way down. It actually looked like a guy was hanging lights and the ladder tipped. W don't get much traffic down our street and the neighbors know my practical jokes. So it was only funny for a couple days. But my pay back came last year when I actually did tip the ladder over hanging Christmas lights and bruised/broke a couple ribs while my wife was supposed to be holding the ladder.

Might have been. But she was asking me if I was okay and I couldn't even catch my breath enough to answer. Funny now, but not funny then.

Christmas will be here soon and my wife said I'm not allowed near any ladders. I'm the Clark Griswold of our neighborhood when it comes to Christmas lights because I like to really decorate. Like so many of us that were deployed at Christmas it was just another day.

Looks fine to me, did something similar except with a lawn mower, but then I had a strobe light and other decorations so there was no mistaking it for what it was ... just a halloween display.

Some people just don't get into the fun of things like this.
