Gerald, you are my kind of guy, just a hares breath ahead of trouble, always figuring what we could do & get away with next. We once tied a cotton reel of thread to an old ladies door chain late at night, ( she locked her house with a big padlock & the chain)I guess she was scared out of her wits , she told all the neighbours that the Devil was outside her house all night. Needless to say we did not do it again in case she had a heart attack & it would be our fault. Mick B.
One of my late uncles was an OPP (Ontario Provincial Police) officer and the one time I needed a criminal check done for a job he ran one. He phoned my wife and said that I had thirty years of undetected crime and the report was in the mail.
Regards,
Gerald.

there are name variations and it is a widespread game.
