IN THE 1920'S MY UNCLES , ALONG WITH SOME FRIENDS OF THEIR'S, WENT
OUT TO PLAY PRANKS ON HALLOWEEN AND WOULD TIP OVER PEOPLES OUTHOUSES.
THERE WAS ONE THAT SAT AT THE TOP OF A SMALL RISE IN THE LAND.
THIS ONE THEY TURNED OVER LIKE SOME OTHERS THEY HAD DONE EARLIER AND
WERE SURPRISED TO HEAR YELLS COMING OUT OF THE OUTHOUSE AS IT ROLLED
OVER DOWN THE HILL. THE OLD MAN WHO HAD BEEN INSIDE AT THE TIME,
DID NOT GET PHYSICALLY HURT, BUT HE DID RECOGNIZE THE VOICE OF ONE
OF MY UNCLES.
