    I posted on our local neighborhood social media. Everyone said theyve caught kids pulling door handles on their security cameras. I mean, crime does go up when these kids are out of school.

    I pulled it in the garage. I`m gonna call around and see about a window motor.

    612Detail- Huh, wonder if any of those kids caught on video are, uhm...ID-able. But then again, I guess that the days of talking to some kid`s parents and getting `em squared-away are long gone

    Yeah, get the window motor (for a few good reasons ), but I`d keep your Situational Awareness cranked up anyhow, sounds like bad [stuff] could happen around there.

    Oh man do I feel fortunate to live where I do...don`t always appreciate it until something like this gets me thinking.

    I realize that my my inner "old fart" is showing. But when I was a kid (I know, I know) the neighbors didn`t need to have the friendly talk with my parents, they took it up with me directly.
    And my parent`s backed them up.
    The devil made me do it the first time.
    The second time I done it on my own.

    Nutbread- Yeah, same here. It was sorta a not-goofy version of that Takes a Village thing that I tend to disparage. I learned some *very* valuable lessons from (other) adults who caught me doing stuff...and actually, the best lessons weren`t even reported to my parents; the job was done and there was no need because the lesson had already been learned. I always respected adults who treated me that way- calmly and objectively, taking time to explain why I was out of line and not condescending to me just because I was a kid.

    Pull the trim and unplug the switch. I am not saying i know from experience but well it stinks when you get your self back in the same boat again with window down from hitting the button while not looking and or thinking about it. Even with tape on it you can still push it out habit for few seconds then (*^*&^)(&))(&*&%*%% the darn window is down.

    Re: Random thoughts thread

    I put a treble hook in my thumb last year. I am not sure whats worse yours with barb all the way through or mine barb buried in the meat but only a 1/4" in. Yours way worse going in all they way through but at least then you can cut the hook or barb and pass it back with minimal resistant. Mine only in a little but bard stuck in the meat of my thumb, I had to just grab it with pliers and ripe it back out and a little chunk of meat muscle with it. I was doing ok with it stuck in there and using pliers to remove the hook from the bait (as it was a jerk bait with 2 other hooks I didnt want to risk burring in during the ripping the hook out process)but once I ripped the hook out I went white as a ghost and started the cold sweats and my stomach felt like puking. That was one day I really felt bad for the fish with all the hooks I have pt into them .

    Also this is a pic of the hook style i had in my thumb its a reverse barb treble that comes on Megabass lures.

    Re: Random thoughts thread

    oh no my friend, it was a treble hook from a rattle trap that went straight in past the barb. those pics are after I cut that part of the treble hook off with a pair of side cutters and curved it around to push it back through my finger.

    Actually it was the 3rd hook of the lure that stuck me. I had the rattle trap in both hands after taking it out of the box and it started sliding off with the lid open. My son was standing back with me so I tried to grab it....2 hooks went in my right hand and a third in my left hand. One barely went in and pulled out easy. The 2nd went barely past the barb so I ripped it back out. That 3rd one went buried straight in. There was no ripping it backwards.

    Re: Random thoughts thread

    Rattle traps are dangerous. That story made my &$^^ pucker, three hooks in . I have a box full of ratle traps and to make them easier to get out the box and to make them easier to handle I wrap the hooks together with a elastic (ones meant for braiding horse mains) so the tangle less and the hooks are not dangling during knot tying then cut off the elastic when ready to fish. Also do my crank baits (looks sorta like this but with small elastic you dont have to wrap as much it fits more snugly and also they are super cheap so you can just cut them instead trying to unwrap them.
