    There was a lot of police cars and an ambulance at my next door neighboors' house last night so this morning, I went over to check on them. Sadly, I was told by the woman, who has been very open to the chicken in my yard, that her husband shot and killed himself in the backyard. I can see the chair they found him in, as well as a beer can and his walking stick from my hen house. It's really upsetting! They moved here recently, and I don't think they have any friends or family! It's just so sad.[​IMG]

    That is so sad. He must have had some disturbing issues blocked up inside. You here about this type of thing everyday, but when it hits home, that's when it's an eye opener

    She will need you as a friend at this time, so go and give her a [​IMG] from all of BYC 11444 members.
