I'm home alone yesterday with the dogs and I hear a strange sound outside. I'm thinking it might be the roofers who were supposed to come and fix the loose shingles and clean the gutters. I go to the kitchen and look out the window and my window has water all over it, which explains the noise. I notice water has been sprayed all over the street, but I can't see anyone. I then go out the back door and this guy in his 30's is outside in my yard playing with the hose. WTF?
I noticed him sitting on a bucket earlier in the day and about to fall over in the busy street as cars went by, so I know he's a whack job and call the police for them to check him out. I do this frequently with the whack jobs who show up on the corner here. He disappeared and they didn't find him, but he came back later and scared the heck out of the store clerk and she called her dh to come sit with her. So my dh called the police again and all they did was send him on his way. He went directly into someone's yard to hide, so they arrested him and took him to the drunk tank.
I'm so glad for my dogs, especially ds' german shepherd, but I'm so ready to move. Sick of druggies, drunks and thiefs around here. Those who live in rural areas are so blessed!
