  1. Well, it’s really more about hard to believe calamities boys will get into with too much time on their hands. Is it any wonder? Just look at them! They’re all trying to scare or punish their parents–directly– in one manner or another.

    At least all I did was play with matches and electrical sockets. Apples and arrows must have been a popular thing in the 50’s, obviously. At least in the top one Dad’s awake. In the rest he’s sound asleep. And what about poor Mom in numbers 2 and 4?! My Mom would find empty cans of her Aqua Net (my bugs blow torch) in the garbage can until I started buying replacements.

    Not to be a hypocrite, but I have a boy too. I know!! BUT he has 4-legs, is well behaved, and we have as much fun as is possible in these times. If it’s not raining or too cold Sunday, a trip to the dog park sounds good to us.
