A True Story!

I got an email from my friend Kathy. She lives about 5 miles from me, in the middle of an orchard. It can get pretty dark at her place at night, because, well, she lives out in the middle of an orchard! Anyway, I got this email from her. Just had to share it.



"Last night, my alarm system started sounding and woke me up. I just figured the wind may have blown the side garage door open, because I didn't lock it secure enough. That darned door has swollen and is hard to get in the lock just right. But that was not it. Called the alarm company, because resetting the alarm wouldn't work. They said they would send a tech out today.... great. Tried to get back to sleep, then the front driveway light sensor went off... called the Sheriff at this point... Two officers showed up and said there were two rabbits in my driveway... 5 minutes after they left, there was banging up on my roof. Called the Sheriff again. This time, I asked the officers to go check out my garage, so they had to come through the dark house, as I had all lights off, not wanting a possible bad guy to see me. They turned the corner............ drew their guns and............


almost shot John Wayne!!!! They grabbed their chest from near heart failure, as they thought he was real!! Nothing was found, and this morning a technician will be here to fix my alarms. Whew!

I sincerely hope those rabbits and raccoons enjoyed themselves!"

  4. Yeah, after I figured out all was ok, I just about died with laughter! Funny part of it is, the first time I was in her house, I about had heart failure myself, and that was daytime, and I wasn't looking for bad guys!

  7. Cute story, though at the time doubt anyone was laughing. If I were your friend, I would have been really freaked out! Glad it had a good ending. :)
