had two boys help me some with mixin hod an totin some block. the oldest feller tolt the other one to check the end of the hose for packed mud or a rock or such. it wernt lettin water through. well the younger boy looked into the end of the hose and the older feller turned on the water. after a good face washin the younger feller had a pretty bad attitude at our laugh at his exspence.

well later in the afternoon that older feller done the same thing to him again. this time he went to elaborite lengths to make out like he wornt foolin with it. he walked to the spickit and cranked on it, then walked to the end of the hose and looked. then shook the hose and poked in it with a coat hanger. he walked back to the spickit again and cranked on it. no water. then the younger feller picked up the hose and looked into the end of it again. whoosh! another face washin.
lord, i nearly fell apart from laughin. my sides hurt afterward and my cheecks ached. that younger feller laughed at himself that time and we laughed off and on about it the rest of the day.

Here's a trick that has worked reliably for me - drink a bottle or can of pop all but the last swallow, seal the opening with your thumb and pretend to look thru the can at the sun. When your accomplice inquires, just say "I had no idea these things were that thin" or "It's like a magnifying glass" or something and pass it to him. He'll grab it, look in, tip her back and SKLOOSH! :)

During most of the toughest demanding times throughout my Naval career the best memories I have is the crazy stuff we sailors did to each other for a good laugh. I'd write a book onnit but no one would believe it....except other sailors! :^)
