I have a lot of things to tell you about, life has been quite exciting since Thanksgiving. :-)
First of all, as we were driving home from a very good day at Grandma's thanksgiving night, we arrived home to see a strange pick-up in our driveway. We drove in the driveway and crept up slowly in our suburban. We took down the trucks tag number as we looked at the house from the safety of the suburban. After thinking a bit, we backed down the driveway, closed the gate and zoomed to the police station. After arriving, we had the police run the tag number and we found that the pickup belonged to an old friend of the family and had most likely broken down and had been pushed into our drive. So we went back home, looked the house over real good and collapsed into bed.
Then, today Mom and I got to talk to a private investigator. :-D He was out working his day job with our electric company and he started telling us about his off-the-job adventures. He is a black belt in Judo and Ju Jitsu, and doesn't carry a gun on the job. :-) He told us how one time an old lady with a broom almost beat him to death when he served her with a court notice about her daughters unpaid for car.(she was a co-signer for this vehicle, and therefore could be served with papers) She thought he was trying to evict her from her house and defended it valiantly. :-) finally, they both started laughing and she quit hitting him long enough for him to tell her why he was really there. He was quite a fun fellow to talk to. I greatly enjoyed the conversation.
I have so many ideas for articles, the problem seems to be having time to write. I hope to see all of you here again soon.
