Re: Re: son/military


I know it...LAST year, 4th of July, he is lighting one of those big,
missile launcher firecrackers...and his sister says, "NEAL...you have it
in the tube upside DOWN..turn it over"...his response "Be quiet Brianna,
I know what I'm doing". It's dark by now, so it's hard to see. So..he
lights it (wrong end) and runs backwards...but before he can get out of
the way the thing blows up on the GROUND and leaves a HUGE hole in the
dirt. Nice. Very nice. Demolition? I don't think so.

As it is, Sam as an MP, has to patrol for such devices. Scary.
