I think what caused my negative reaction was that it sounded like it was all one sided. Sounds like in your family it goes both ways. That's great! (How easy it is to take things out of context on these groups.)

BTW. Good one on the alarm. Should have had it on camcorder. Peace.

I love a good time but never at the cost of upsetting or hurting someone else. Family is grounded and knows how to laugh at ourselves. Trying to get my parents and siblings to join the forums too (they all camp). Sent them the link so sure sooner or later you will hear some of the stupid things I fell for as well. No need to bring those up until then..

Definately look forward to conversing more down the road in the forums. Perhaps one day our paths will cross and we can look back and laugh as well!

A three bro-in-law camping weekend trip which included a day long bicycle ride was capped by a handshake which went down in family history.

Two of us had camped often, but the third one was a newbie, so us "old timers" agreed that it would be fitting to "welcome" him into the clan.

Well, it was decided that I would be the photographer and my main man chose a nice country road with flowers and cows as a background and the two of them were posing and there was a short speech which ended when they shook hands, and at the same time my old timer bro-in-law grabbed the electric fence!

Hi Bob, loved your pranks and want to tell you about how I got my father in law to quit.

He was a chain smoker and would just lite up when and where ever he happened to be. I had quit some years before and one day he showed up for dinner at our house in Concord CA, (yep just over the hill from you) and sat down on the couch and lit up. We did not smoke and had no ash trays in the house anywere to be found but he lit up and then said "wheres the ash tray?'

I pulled out a small stainless steel saled bowl and handed it to him. He smoked about 8 or 9 cigs before dinner and then we went to the table. I took his bowl and dumped the butts out and washed the bowl and served his salad in it. He took a couple of bites of salad then said "oh you have a whole set of these" I replyed "nope, thats the only one" He did not finish his salad and never smoked in our house again. Never said boo about the incident and stoped smoking several months later.

Still get a chuckle out of that one when we relate it around the table, (without him there of course. He is now 89 and still kicking.

Don't stop...your giving me great ideas. When my Dad was alive, we use to wait for my Mom to go to the grocery store, then go move her car.

When I was a kid back in the late 60's, my Mom and Dad had their Saturday evening out. No drinking are anything like that, just Mom and Dad having dinner. So, I would alway try to do things to mess with Mom or Dad when they came home. My Dad was a Medic during WW2, so you never could really shake him up, but Mom was funny. I put Elmers glue on my hand one night, and let it dry. When they came home, I started to peel it off, saying I burnt my hand while cooking dinner. My Mom was going nuts, and Dad just stood there saying "It's not nice to scare your mother like that, but it is funny."

One night I got ahold of the glow in the dark paint that you could put on your body, and put this stuff on me from head to toe, hid in the basement under Dad's shop light, and when I heard the truck come home, snuck upstairs, waited for Mom to hit the door, (because she always headed for the bathroom when she came home) then jumped out, and well, she screamed, and didn't have to go to the bathroom anymore. My Dad's only reply was "Boy, you going to catch cold running around naked like that."

My Brother-in-law throught it would be funny if he run a jumper wire from my turn siganl to the horn on my old car. Everytime you turned on the siganl, the horn would go off.

As long as nobody get hurts, what is wrong with a little humor???????????????????????

Went camping with our church group. Came back from the beach before the rest of the group, to get a snack. When I saw our bikes an idea popped.

I grabbed my trusty crescent wrench & loosened up all the seats. Not real loose, just enough to turn side to side when you peddled. Of course when everbody else got back I suggested a bike ride around the CG. What a bunch of gigglers!

Of course the next morning we had to ride around again so I checked my seat very carefully. Shoulda checked the handle bars. Boy that maple syrup is sticky! Buncha sneaky gigglers!

One of our family favorites... When no one is looking, wrap a rubber band (or black pony tail holder) tightly around the sprayer nozzle on the sink, using it to hold the button down. Make sure sprayer is pointed in the right direction. Either ask someone who is up to get you a glass of water, or just sit and wait for the next innocent person to turn on the faucet. A better prank for the camper than say Christmas dinner when people are dressed nicely. :-)
