I just have to tell you

I recently posted about a weird night I had with the telephone and how I went out at 2 a.m. to check it out and Nancy from stitchesnstrokes threatened to come down and talk to me about that.
Well I just have to tell you that I laughed when the girls were telling me I shouldn't do that. I have lived in my neighborhood all my life. And in my defense, we have never had anything stolen in my 58 years but once.
As a child and teenager, it was nothing for me to go out at 1 or 2 a.m. and go walking through the neighborhood. I use to go up a high hill across the road and lay in the grass and stare at the lake below because it was so pretty at night. I have actually fallen asleep up there and woke up at daylight. So this is why I never thought a thing about going out to check things out that night.
Well I have just found out that someone has been stealing in our neighborhood! The night after I paraded around at 2a.m., they stole our neighbors rotor tiller, tarp and all!!! And the first thing I thought about was Nancy telling me never to do that again without waking up Chester first.LOL
This is about the 5th house they have hit right around us. And I have to say they better hope I am not the one that catches them. When the Bible says that "hell hath no fury like the scorn of a woman", it was talking about me!!lol
I am furious that after 58 years, someone is making my neighborhood unsafe to get out when I want. It is nothing for me to go out at 2 or 3 in the morning and sit on the porch just to cool off. I have actually slept on my porch swing with a pillow and blanky when I get hot so I could cool off.
But I guess Nancy wins this one because I cannot go out in the middle of the night until they catch whoever this is. And they better hope it's the law that catches them, not me!!!!!

Like I said, "Listen to me! Don't you ever do that again or I WILL come down there!" And that isn't a weekend trip! LOL

Sad, this is happening around us also! We work hard for what we have, and that does not mean you can just help yourself!

I agree Rose and it is really sad that you can't just get out and have lone time without worrying about getting mugged or worse.

Holy cow that is something! I so agree with Nancy!! Too bad I didn't live closer... I'd bring some manure, jumper cables, red ants and lots of syrup. I'm not sure how I'd put it together just yet but it'll come to me LOL!! I'm still giggling at Nancy saying it's not a weekend trip to get to you LOL!
Be careful... and wait to sleep out on the porch for awhile. :) ♥
Blessings, Dawn

Well needless to say Dawn, my nighttime adventures have been put on hold awhile. I'm afraid Nancy will bring a switch if she has to come all the way down here.ROFLMBO
