TP'd !!!!

I was driving down a street when I saw this.....

Do kids actually do this anymore?
Well, apparently so :p

Naturally, I thought BLOG!!
and, naturally, I didn't have my camera with me!

So I made a quick run home, and dashed back lest the tp'd parents pull down all that glorious paper waving in the breeze.....

And look at this!
They even got the fire hydrant!
And left some cardboard reminders that they had been there....

When I was in high school, I got tp'd -- I, of course, thought that was the absolute, hands down, best!! 

My father, however, did not share my excitement, and proceeded to have me pick up all the paper on the grass -- while he got out the ladder and got all that he could from the branches. And it was a BIG oak tree!

I begged him to leave it for a day (so others could come by and see, you understand) but no, he had to take it down right then. The yard had to be pristine and who were those rapscallions anyway who would do such a thing? Those rascals. Those scamps. Those scalawags and hooligans.

My friends, that's who!!
and I secretly smiled.

♥♥♥  Linking up the TP fun over at Miss Jenny's for Alphabe-Thursday where we are studying the letter T!

My neighbor's house was tp'd today/last night! And someone threw eggs at mine & my brother's cars. :(
I was not too pleased about it, however, because I was awoken at 7am by the police - informing me that someone had vandalized the house. Haha. :(

OMG - that looks hilarious! However, I can totally understand that your parents did not like the 'decoration' ;)

Saying 'hello' via Alphabe- Thursday - mine for letter 'T' @ ImagesByCW is about the Ticino / Valle Verzasca

I thought that only happens on halloween but I guess someone started early. it doesn't look bad at all, like a party going on with the trees or something

have a great day.

Ha Ha!
I TP'd a couple places in my day!
My daughter got coned when she was in high school.

Kathleen said...

haha - too funny! We got TPd by mistake - lol - DD was a baby when it happened. I think somebody got the wrong house.

Oh man! I don't know that I've ever actually seen that! How neat;)

BeadedTail said...

That's funny! They did a great job! Not much tp'ing happens around here or at least I don't see it. I've never done it or had it done to my house and I'm glad!

Rose said...

It's good that kids still know how to have some old fashioned fun. It's great that you were able to capture this.

My daughter's house looked like this several times as my granddaughter was in sports and they do it a lot to the players! A spray nozzel on the hose brings down much of it!

Wanda said...

There's a large waterfall feature at the entrance to a subdivision near where we live. Kids love to put soap into the works because it ends up building enormous soap mounds that look like piles of snow--and that's as close to snow as we're likely to get here in the Tampa area!

Judie said...

I hope a rain storm didn't come along before the TP was removed! Now that's REALLY a mess to clean up!!

LimeRiot said...

HA HA!! What fun!! I was tp'd once as a teen and LOVED it too. I'm glad pranksters still do this :).

Yes, I get that it's a badge of to speak...but man, if it rains....ugh.... LOL

Geneva said...

I'm glad you decided to go back and get your camera...the photo's are great! I see a yard like this from time to time and it always brings back good memories! I've always wondered how people got it down.

What fun to come across! I bet those kids had a hayday!

Jenny said...

I grew up as a military brat. I suspect TP'ing would end you in the brig. ha!

It would be kind of a fun thing to be the recipient of.

Probably not quite as terrific to clean up!

Thanks for a fun link for the letter "T".
