    'A suspect was arrested in Benton County, MO today, for assault and battery on some children. Garhkal shot at some youths last night, with an unspecified weapon.

    He was turned in by Unca Rastus, who stated at the time Garhkal was arrested, "Garhkal, kids will be kids!"

    The local police released the weapon used into the custody of Unca Rastus, for further testing'.

    retiredAFcivvy,

    We are the same person, but don't tell anybody. It will be our secret!

    Really. I thought it would be silly to keep up two different accounts, so I ditched the DocBones deal. That, plus I am too old to to either care, or to remember my password for the DocBones account.

    Just think of me as Clark Kent, that had to change into Superman every time he was called upon. Or Bruce Wayne, having to hide his identity as Batman.

    Although, back in the day, I did depend on spectacles, now I don't because of some very cool SuperBat surgery, to rid me of some of them there pesty cataracts.

    I am telling you on the QT. Loose lips sink ships!

    Pretty sneaky, huh?

    Since I am the only Drill Instructor from the USMC in here, and I have mentioned that in my new persona also, I do believe that almost everybody knows who I am.

    Well, everybody except my cat. Every time I go out on the porch, she hisses at me, and takes swipes at my legs. Then she realizes that I am the guy that feeds her. Pretty soon, she is caterwauling at me, because I wasn't fast enough in feeding her. Ever.

    It is great to see you back, though!

    The police department just says that kids will be kids. Since we moved out here, about 11 years ago, this small city has been held hostage to these kids demands, come trick or treating time.

    A couple of years ago, we did the candy thing, and my pickup truck still got egged. I suppose that the kids got tired of egging just candy Nazis, and just let fly at whatever they wanted.

    Next year, I am going to camouflage myself, and just wait and watch, to see whoever it is that eggs my neighbors house (which happens every year). Then I shall tell my neighbor whichever vehicle is being used, and wait to see what happens next.

    Maybe I will just set up a security camera.

    Or maybe I will rig up an Egg Shooting Device, and have at them. The only way that this could work is if I hard boil the eggs, first.

    Then I could tell the police that I have a childish streak in me, and just as they have said, "Kids will be kids!"

    Since I am working on the Egg Projectile Thrower, I have noticed that if I put the hard boiled eggs back into their carton, then send them downrange, my device more copies the beehive rounds fired from 105 howitzers, during the Vietnam War.

    Since this method delivers a trick, while also providing treats, I have called it 'The Trickster'. Or maybe the 'Treater', depending on whether they are being pelted by these hard boiled eggs, or if they are eating the hard boiled eggs, either way, it will be very satisfying to use this device.

    Maybe I will just call it my 'TnT' gun.

    I am not sure if this legal. Do you want to come on out here next year? I will let you do the firing of this device. As a matter of fact, I will gift it to you! Make sure that you handle the gun all over, before you light it off. There's nothing like having your DNA put on the gun, with your very own fingerprints, to gain ownership of such a nice piece of craftsmanship!

    See you next Halloween, Garhkal!
    It is interesting to me how, even in the U.S. Halloween traditions vary greatly.

    Where I grew up in N.J., we had a thing we called "Mischief Night". It was the night before Halloween...and kids would go around doing little deeds of mischief, usally like soaping windowns or TPing houses...maybe some egging. Some would get more carried away..the flaming poop bag on the doorstep, or even heard of pouring Coke on someone's car which is especially nasty. 99% of it was pretty harmless though.

    Us kids weren't allowed out on Mischief night...but we'd say up peeking out the windows to see if anyone came by, and get up early on Halloween to survey the damage...some neighbors would go so far as hiding in the bushes with the hose and drench anyone coming by their house. Oct 30th was sometimes pretty cold in NJ.

    Anyway, I've never really seen that tradition anywhere else in the country I've been...and when I mention it, most people don't know what I'm talking about.

    The other thing we did back home...was we would trick-or-treat during the daytime...all day if Halloween was on a Saturday like this year...there would be kids all over the place doing it....and into the night. Where I live now, no one comes trick-or-treating until dark...zero, nada, zilch.
    I have heard of horror stories like that many a time. And what gets me every time i hear it, is IF a parent or adult retaliates against those kids, THEY are the ones the cop's arrest.. Such as the time some kids (over on the Biloxi side of house) supposedly went around tossing rotten eggs into people's open windows.. Someone tossed a british style Cricket ball at one of the kids, hitting him in the face and knocking out a tooth.
    HE got done for assault, while nothing happened to the kids (that i ever heard of that is)..

    This town does a Halloween party down at the Community Center, where the kids can get loads of tooth rotting confections. Once the CC runs out, though, the kids are rampaging through the town.

    I go to the extent of putting up 'dead faced' scarecrows with glow sticks coming out of their kissers, where ever there is something that kids might run into.

    If the kids want to keep running around on my yard after I give them their treats, that's their deal, because I do provide them with a warning that my dog uses the yard for his toilet. I am not sure if any of them know that I don't have a dog, though.

    One year only, the police did do something. I didn't even know, until then, that they had riot gear, but they were out in force (not a large force, mind you, this city having about 2000 residents). They called in all shifts, and the cops were strategically placed.

    They had a buttload of candy with them, to give the little snots their treats, after they had scared the bejeebers out of them. That year? No eggs thrown.

    I wish that this would continue, but that's as may be. Too much pay went out to consider ever doing that again.

    Since my wife is skilled in pottery and all things clay, I am thinking about having her make some nice and heavy clay eggs, for next year. After she kilns them, and admires them for a few months, I do believe that if I throw a bunch of them at the kids that are trying to egg my house, I can always rely on the good old, 'But these were thrown at me! I just returned them to their owners'!

    I mean, after all, my friend, they would be not be Cricket balls, right?

    By the way, where are British Cricket's balls located on the Crickets? And why should the police get involved in giving the guy a hard time? It's not like Cricket testicles would do that much harm to a child.

    Man, talk about kids and their entitlements!

    Are you saying that homeowners should be able to knock the teeth out of a kid who throws an egg at their house?

    Or is this another one of your Mannix scenarios where everyone goes to jail?
    All behold that fancy strutting peacock, the bake sale diva...

    Maybe not knock out teeth, but at least have the capacity/right to return fire against people tossing stuff at you/your house/car..
