My old man had his veggie (and fruit) garden that produced more tomatoes than the family could have consumed in 50 years. Well, when Halloween rolled around we had lots of squishy, vine-ripened tomatoes to throw at people.We had an apple orchard on the farm that I grew up on, we used to have apple fights. Worst hit I ever took was an apple to the top of my head. My cousin had a darn good aim.
One afternoon my cousin and I took our "potato guns", hid under an enclosed balcony and had the brilliant idea to shoot at cars passing by through the stairway...Tomatoes, eggs, rocks, dirt clods +1.
Yeah, when I was a kid, and we weren’t throwing things at each other, we were throwing them at cars.
Got chased down by a few angry motorists, but never caught.
Always said that is why God never blessed me with kids, they would have turned out just like me!
