Another "STUPID BOB" trick

A couple of days ago, I was doing some work at an apartment building located on a busy street. Part of it had me removing two electrical boxes and metal stanchions encased in cement from the grass area in front of the building. I had a small hammer and was beating on the metal pipes, but since I wasn't making much headway, I went back to the truck to retrieve a larger hammer. I'm also wondering if using a hammer to beat these pipes out of the ground is the right approach.
It didn't take long to come up with an answer. As I was straddling one of the pipes and beating on it like there was no tomorrow, my aim decided to take a lunch break and instead of hitting the target squarely, I hit it with a glancing blow which then caused the hammer to head directly for my right leg striking it just above the ankle. OH, MAMA!!!....I wanted to scream out loud and cry like a sissy girl but managed to contain myself. Here's why. There was a bus stop about ten feet from where I was working and six or eight people was standing at the stop.
Of course, when one is waiting for a bus, boredom kicks in and how better to relieve that than to watch some monkey trying to beat on a pipe. I got to say, it's damn difficult to be macho in front of a crowd when a lump the size of a golf ball is forming on your leg. One ol' lady sez, "You okay?" "I'm sob okay, sob, it doesn't hurt, sob. Geez!....Where's that damn bus?

Easter egg hunt for future Social Security providers. Things have changed over the years. No real hard-boiled colored eggs in sight....Plastic eggs filled with money. Must be mom's way to cut down on the cholesterol and the colored stained fingers. GEEZ! Life is no fun anymore.
Breakfast first!
Her name is Serenity, but I'm always calling her Serendipity...She keeps correcting me and probably wonders why doesn't this ol' buggah ever get it right.
Okay kids....can you figure out where the golden eggs with the hundred dollar bills are hidden?
Someone pointed out that old ones aren't that perky, so here's a more realistic look.
The race is on
Who the heck is that "big kid" on the right?
