Ok, so I am a paranoid person... Had a bio parent go looking for the daughter that got him locked up and he was coming to kill her.. Anyhoodles, this is one of MANY reasons that I hardly ever go around unarmed.. so yesterday a car slowly goes by my house, stops, then backs up and is just slightly out of sight by the big oak tree in the front yard. A guy gets out with lots of ink, leather jacket and slowly walks back and forth across the front of the property looking back. I have 2 of the 5 vehicles we own parked at the back of the driveway. Not liking how he is checking things out I head out the front door as I'm putting one in the chamber of my .45 and slide it in the back of my belt. He must have heard the slide slam closed because he jumped. There was no way he saw me, and I did it as the front door was closing itself behind me. Obviously he knew what it was. He saw me walking towards him and I hollered hello. He hi'd me back and walked within 20 feet of me. "Any of those cars for sale?" Um... No buddy, they are not. There is no for sale signs anywhere. "Oh, cuz I noticed you guys have a lot of ........ (and he looks towards the back again where I'm building a new shed with all of my outdoor tools in view) uh.... cars.." No buddy, nothings for sale here. Oh... And he keeps staring and looking at me. I get a funny feeling from this dude... He looks wacked out. He starts moving forward towards the driveway and I tell him bub, time to move on.. he looks at me, then he notices my hand on the butt of the gun and finally gets the idea. Do these feces bags really think we ALL go quietly? Didn't get the idea from the first no? After thinking about it last night and today I am thinking that I am NOT a statistic because I was armed and ready. I could have read this situation all wrong but somewhere, some primordial alarm was going off and I listened. This afternoon I was reading about break in's happening in my area... and I wonder... Who else did he visit yesterday? Was he related to any of the kids I've taken in over the years? Was it random? Are ya'll ready and willing?
