Our home has been the target of teenage boys throwing eggs. Most recently on Friday night we heard the pop of eggs hitting the house and cleaned up the mess on the walls of the entryway. Unfortunately eggs were splattered on more than the house and our 87 year old Grandfather who walks with a walker slipped on the walkway that was coated with slippery egg white. He has a hip fracture. We live in the Baron Park area and our son attends Gunn High School. The boys responsible ride their bikes to our home, they obviously have strong throwing arm's (baseball veterans). We should all speak to our children about the unseen dangers of a prank like this, creating a hazard on walkways can and has caused a serious injury. It seems like a simple prank, with a clean-up job being the only consequence but for an 87 year old it has changed his life.
