I had this skeleton hand that was handed out to all the cub scouts at the Pack 3617 Cub Scout Halloween Party. It had bendable wire inside of the plastic bones, so I could bend then into a grabbing position which is what I did. As soon as I saw my sister's ankle come down, my warped sense of humor over rode all common sense, and I put this skeleton hand right around her ankle. She let out a scream that woke up the entire house.




I bet she was scared half to death! :lol: I would be.

Nick, the only time I ever heard her screem as loud, was when she encountered a June Bug in the bath tub.

I also did not come out of that deal unscathed. Both of my parents were angry, and I was punished. Now that I look at it from the perspective of a 50 year old man, I deserved it, but back then, I just thought of it as 'good clean fun.'

darn parents... i never thought to play "scaring" tricks on the rents when they grounded me... hmmmm maybe it would've made em think twice about punishments?
Last night 'twas witching Hallowe'en
Dearest; an apple russet- brown
I pared, and thrice above my crown
Whirled the long skin; they watched in keen;
I flung it far; they laughed and cried me shame
Dearest, there lay the letter of your name!

...or military school :?
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

that's very true... i'd stay away for the pranks then
Last night 'twas witching Hallowe'en
Dearest; an apple russet- brown
I pared, and thrice above my crown
Whirled the long skin; they watched in keen;
I flung it far; they laughed and cried me shame

My parents were strictly 'old school' when it came to how men were supposed to treat women, and how older brothers were supposed to treat their younger sisters. Back then, my younger sister was particularly squeemish about some things. Spyders, snakes, rats, mice and other 'creepy crawlers' were simply not her forte. Additionaly, she hade a morbid fear of skelitons. Even those little 12 inch tall model skelitons woudl give her night mares. When I brought that skelitol hand home from the Cub Scout Halloween party, I had to stow it in my toy box so she couldn't see it at night, or she would be too scared to go to sleep.

One summer, while we were at a family picnick, she was seated at a picnick bench eating an ear of corn on the cob when my niece, who was only abour 5 at the time walked up to her with a garden snake in her hand. The snakd sort of slithered around, fork tongue oscilating in and out of it's mouth. "Would you like some meat with your corn" she asked. My sister took one look at that snake, and took off like all hell was on her tail.

It sounds like you've had a pretty interesting childhood.

It certainly had it's interesting moments, Haunt Master. But all in all it was pretty good. Halloween was definately a high light. In fact, two of the highliths of my childhood are Tirck or Treat, and Summer Vacation.

Oops. You looked at my rank instead of my name. :lol: Or maybe you meant hauntmaster.

No problem, Hauntmaster. I will try to remember that your name and rank are one in the same.

Well I went to a Haunted House last year, and one of the guys that was part of it had a real chain saw as well. But the chain was off it. For three bucks though, it was actually a pretty good haunted house; way better than I expected.
This probably seems crazy, crazy, a graveyard theory,
A ghost tried to approach me and got leery.
Ask him a question and he vanished in a second...
