In My Day, We Called It "Wrapping"...!
It was all in fun, hurt no one, and gave us a true rush just to know that we could get caught at any moment!
No guns, no fighting, no damage done to property (other than making a really big mess), and often we would show up the next day and help to clean up!
Even though we thought ourselves beyond brave and owners of big, brass ones...I doubt if we ever had the gumption these guys must have!

DENVER — It wasn't fresh mountain snow but toilet paper that blanketed the front lawn of the Colorado governor's mansion Thanksgiving morning.
Gov. Bill Ritter told KUSA-TV that he and his wife noticed shortly after dawn Thursday that someone had "teepeed" the front lawn.
State officials said it was the first time that happened to the 101-year-old landmark.
Ritter joked about it, saying he has teenage children at home and that it was probably a prank. First Lady Jeannie Ritter said she would be worried if the house had been egged or damaged but the toilet paper prank is harmless.
The 1908 Georgian revival home is near the state Capitol in Denver.
It's really nice to see that kids can still prove their bravado and count coup without shooting, stabbing, or being destructive. Not a bad way to show that ANYONE can be touched, if the conditions are right!
Best thing? The governor and hi wife are laughing about it! I wonder if that could be because they don't have to clean it up themselves!
After all, being the Top Dog in the state does have it's perks!
My friends, let's get some coffee and sit outside for a bit. Leftover pie is available...but I'm still full! How about you?
