'postal vigilante'

Sam and I played police detectives today when we were leaving the high desert house and I am happy to report...
 
We have a witness to the crime!
 
There is a house behind our property about 50 yards away... it looks as if no one lives there... but yesterday I saw an elderly lady watering a tree...
So Sam and I go over there and he knocks on the door...
She saw 3 kids, with 4 dogs and called the police....  A Black kid dressed in all white sweats, a Hispanic kid in all black, and another kid with a hoodie on, in khaki shorts but she couldnt tell what he was because of the hoodie, they had 3 pitbulls and a springer spaniel with them... they went in the back of the property [where the hole in the fence was cut but she didnt know that at the time]  she saw them climb into the back of Sam's old beater Dodge truck in the driveway and try looking in the garage, then she said she saw them doing something with a rope [we believe this was actually when they were beating the wood down and the motion looked like using a rope or a whip action]
She said she wasnt sure if it was us or not... she wasnt sure about calling the police in case it was us... finally she thought she better call the police... so she called the regular business hours phone but it said they were closed for the day and if it was an emergency call 911...  She wasnt sure if it was an actual emergency... so she didnt call 911... then later she saw a white truck there [Kris and his friend Mike waiting for the police and boarding everything up for us] so she called the police again... they asked her to go to our property and get the lic. #...
She said "No, I am an old woman... I am not going over there... what if it is robbers!"
Then she saw the police over there, later they drove in her driveway but no one came to talk to her...
 
Anyway... we shall see where this goes... the investigating officer was off duty today but he will call us... I hope he gets on duty soon!! 
 
or I may have to go 'postal vigilante' on some kids myself...
 
Sam and I are going to tie them up by certain body parts and give them a tour of the property from behind 'Old Betsy'  [an ATC we have]
Seems only fair since they like our property so much... right...

Good job Granny Neighbor Woman! She got good descriptions. If the kids knew the police were called, they wont be back.
Yes, you and Sam missed AI last night. It was a bit boring. This one chick has one a tube top dress and i swear to you her boobs were HUGE....i mean, shit, you could not see anything but her boobs....and all Simon kept saying to her was that she had a big " belt buckle".

i love you
