The Tonight Show

Post by Billyfish » Fri Sep 18, 2020 4:36 am

It was 11:30pm.

The group renting next door to us for 2 weeks were in the pool with all the floodlights on shouting, hollering splashing; making outrageous noise.
The Missus has had enough.
The pool is 30' from our bedroom. I was in the office other end of the house.
Outside she goes unbeknownst to me; up to the stockade fence separating their pool from our yard.
I hear: “HELLO…HELLO… HELLO…HELLO…!!!”
Her volume is 80 decibels at least; finally a response from the noisemakers on the other side.
“EFFING SHUT UP OR I WILL CALL THE POLICE!!” utters my spouse at the top of her lungs.
Silence…flood lights go out about 5 minutes later.

You go Girl!!

And that capped off the night of our 25th or 26th wedding anniversary; we’ve lost count.
I’m still laughing my ass off.
God I love her.

Never ask someone else to do what you can do yourself. :wink:
My Baby when pissed off is scarier than any pair of our town cops. :shock:

Speaking of pools, a lot of homes around mine have pools. Even during this Summer of Covid 19, pool parties are as popular as cold beer on a hot Summer evening.

You never know if the people are stoned or drunk, you could be stepping into a big puddle of hurt.

No worries. :wink:
I suppose a scenario like that could arise; but it hasn't in the 26 years since we built here.
Come to our door with violence in your heart and the door gets answered with pepper spray for an appetizer and a call to 911; the walls are covered with lots of experienced swords, spears etc. for anyone who wants to take things further inside.
Best part is she doesn't mind living an armory.

We've been living with situations like what happened last night for a very long time and we were here first.

Good on you but I'm still carrying a gun! First thing I learned in scouts was be prepared and I like 17 in my pistol and 30 in my rifle! To old to throw down anymore, don't mess with old farts.

I'd get hung from a lamp post by Mass. authorities; so the guns remain in the safe Sammy.
I did forget to mention the two very large and very protective Ridgeback hounds that are members of the household.
Now, if someone killed one of my dogs that safe might just get opened.
I have a cc high capacity license as does the Missus.

I have been staffed in Mass. for the better part of the last 9 years which meant flying there for the workweek, every week. I know the repressive self defense laws you have to deal with in Mass. and have heard and read about the ludicrous charges people face for simply defending themselves or their family. Seems you have it covered on good ole Amity :D

On a more negative note, we just talked to my daughter who lives in L.A. and was just robbed. The good news is she is ok but minus her purse with all the usual cards, and her laptop. Police said it will be 2 - 3 weeks before they can even look into it. The obvious results of defunding :evil:

We all know Sammy but would rather not talk about it publicly I think.

Shortly after my daughter was robbed there was a $500 charge at Footlocker on it. The fact that the charge was at Footlocker didn't surprise me, what would have surprised me was if the charge was at a bookstore. :lol:

The good news is that she won't be liable for the charge.
