My Uncle Jimmy was a prankster as I remember him and always enjoyed a good laugh. The one thing I know about him is that he was so afraid of snakes. He had a diner in downtown Weston and one day I took a fake snake and walked up to him in the diner and pulled it out and I though he was going to have a stroke. He was ready to whip me other than the fact the snake was in the way. The whole diner was laughing when they saw it was a fake snake. Another time me and Bubby his son took my walkie talkies to his house and while Bubby stayed outside I walked in and was showing my walkie talkie to Uncle Jimmy. He had no clue about Bubby being outside and when the voice came over it telling me I was on a govenment channel and I could be arrested didn't set well with him. It didn't help either when I told the voice I wasn't afraid and I would kick their butts. The conversation got more heated and all the time Uncle Jimmy was telling me to turn the sob walkie talkie off. About the time Uncle Jimmy was about to have a cow the voice on the walkie talkie said they could track me and knew where I was. It was when Bubby knocked on the door I thought Uncle Jimmy was crappng his pants. When Bubby walked in with the other walkie talkie and said got ya Dad I thought I would die. We pulled a prank on the king of pranks. The best thing about him was he knew he had been had and he wasn't mad. He truly appreciated a good prank. But on the other side he was relieved that Uncle Sam wasn't at his front door. I wish he had lived longer because I am sure there were many things he could have taught me. Darrell warner
