We have clowns scaring people here too. Not sure they're stealing grannie panties, but they might be.

OK, now you've got me thinking. I'll have to go check my underwear drawer and take inventory.

I just looked up "commando" in my Danish-English/English-Danish dictionary. In Danish, it's spelled "kommando". Danes and Swedes don't always spell words the same way, even when they sound the same. Sometimes they spell a word the same way, but don't pronounce it the same. E.g., the word for "machine" is "maskin" in both languages. The Danes pronounce the "k" like in English. In Swedish, it's a soft "k", so they pronounce the word almost like in English.

I know of one clown that has given up pranking folks. Someone came after him wielding and waving a machete. That clown couldn't run fast enough as he started pulling and ripping off his costume.

Then we just had a father dressed as a clown following his son's school bus as a joke. The driver had the good sense to call the cops. One father who won't be showing off his sense of humor. Had a hard time explaining his way out of that one.

Wondering how it's possible that as of today, I'm the mother of a 40 year old daughter. Happy birthday to Rebecca...my first born baby girl!
