    1. Well SAM was high on S'mores and Coca-Cola and he was bouncing around the campfire hooting and hollering and then he found the duct tape and for some reason stuck it over his mouth. Then he asked Dave to tie up his arms. Well, never one to let an opportunity pass, ol Bootcamp Dave not only tied up his arms, he tied Sam's whole body to the picnic table!

    1. He certainly did! Thought it was HILARIOUS! He only asked to be untied when the Jiffy Pop popcorn was ready to eat!

    1. I know. Every time I look at that picture I pee myself. I have photos of just Sam but what makes this one so funny is Dave completely ignoring him, like it's normal for a kid to be trussed to a picnic table.

  14. If you did that over here (and posted the pictures, too!) you'd probably get a visit from the police and social workers! (;-p)

    Other uses for duct tape - my son has a wallet his sister custom-made for him. Every time it starts to look shabby she volunteers to make a new one but he won't have it - he just slaps on another layer! (good job he has big pockets in his jeans as the wallet's girth is growing! :-o)

  20. Duct tape is cheap as well. Cheaper than ear plugs, cheaper than plastic surgery, cheaper than plumbers. It is truly miraculous stuff. Unfortunately it also has legs. If you put in down in a safe spot it will not be there when you return. So eventually you will have 15 partially used rolls lurking in safe havens in your house, your car, your handbag.

    1. You should try this at your house, Juli. With all those pesky boys you have, it could make for some nice quiet evenings!

      I wanted to buy some polka-dotted duct tape the last time we were at the hardware store, but Bootcamp wouldn't have it.

  22. LOL Cathy, and bravo for you beautiful son for playing along!

  23. Hilarious, so tempting, though my kids just did stuff like that to each other. Fail proof.
    In my twisted morbid little brain, it reminds me of my favourite Valentine:
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I've got a knife
    Get in the van.
