You know you live in a small town when....

You pick up the local paper and read this:

On Sept. 28, a woman reported someone pried open her front door and stole the following: Food valued at $4 and a speaker box valued at $50.

On Sept. 29, an employee of a local grocery store reported someone stole the following: A bag of chips valued at $1, two packages of lemon drops valued at $1, and a box of aluminum foil valued at $1. All items were recovered and the incident was cleared by an arrest.

Seriously?

Do we not have anything more exciting to report?

I have more excitement going on in my home than that.

On Sept. 29, a five year old stole his sisters Oreo and refused to give it back. He denied the incident but was found guilty when the evidence of said cookie was all over his face. Punishment is pending.

On Sept. 30, an incident of assault with a deadly weapon was reported as a thirteen year old, who certainly knew better, whacked his little brother in the head with a ping pong paddle. Punishment was immediately administered.

Oh, and for the record...if I am ever caught stealing, please let it be for an 87" plasma and not a ham sandwich and cough drops.

Oh I know what you mean...a couple years ago some guy backed into our front bumper in the drive thru....it was in the paper the next day ! Now I could see it if he ran us off the road or something while drunk or in a fit of roadrage but really he backed into us driving 1/2 mile an hour ! haha

Oh my goodness....what a crime area you live in. I'm sorry... I hope you have security cameras around your house.

Meanwhile come over and visit me.
There is gossip brewing. John has found a new honey. What should I do? Give me your advice ASAP.
Thanks, Lura
