Ok I have been known for having a sick sense of humor, That being said I was working with a friend of mine bulling a engine out of a sport fishing boat, we were pull the the port engine out first, after the hoisted the 3500 pound plus out the boat weight of the starboard engine, the boat listed, and when the that happened th deck fell and hit my buddy in the head Ok I know this is not good up front busting his head having staples in his head, but on the lighter side (which is my side ) that dag gum 100 pound Hatch had to bounce 6 inches or more off his head LOL I told you I had a sick sense of humor, but we can sit an laugh about it now. And for the record he he would hav done the same to me once we know were fine it's not funny someone getting hurt.

In the early 70's our grandpa drove a tractor trailer, hauling travel trailers, well the special trailer that he pulled to carry RV's had a long tongue (big steel beam) on the front to pull the front trailer up as close to cab as you can get. well the truck he had had a rear window in it and my older brother who was about 13 at the time was attempting to hook the truck to the trailer, well his first try didn't go very well,So grandpa told my brother to pull to the end of driveway and as he was backing up he yelled "hit er hard doodle" (doodle was his nickname for my brother) well he did as he wast told,the pin missed the 5th wheel and the beam went right through the rear window right next to my brothers head. that was 40 years ago and we still laugh about like it just happened.

My older brother and I were out playing with are home made bow and arrows and my brother said he could shoot his over the house,course I wanted to see this so I dared him. So up the the arrow goes over the roof and then you here blood curdling screams from are sister, first thing we thought we were gonna get beat by are mom.( even though I had nothing to do with it I was sure to get it too just for being on that side of the house or even on the property for that matter)
we ran around the house as fast as we could there was our sister with the arrow stuck in her forearm, oh man we started to panic, but my brother went straight for my sisters weak spot "money" he offered her the 50 cent piece not to tell, this old man that my dad knew used to give all of us kids when he came around, You know she never told til we were all adults and not living at home anymore which was still risky.
