DO YOU LIVE IN A ROUGH NEIGHBORHOOD?




Years ago, Bud had a car that talked.  It would say things like, "Your washer fluid is low" & "Your right taillight is burned out."   If we had lived in the ghetto, it's repertoire might have been different.  I can picture it now.  Bud gets in the car & it won't start.  The car says, "Some motherf****r stole your battree!!"

I've figured out a way to keep burglars from picking your locks to get into your house or apartment.  Put six locks on the door & only lock three random ones.  That way, with the burglar relocking the open ones, he probably will get frustrated & leave.


If you see any of these, you probably should move:

Carol Wyer's newest book, "The Missing Girls", is, I believe, the best in this series so far.
There was no way I could have predicted the ending!!

  1. Our neighbourhood is not rough. Dull perhaps, but when the most common crime is not picking up after your dog, I think we are lucky.
    Loved the crack and quack house cartoons.

  5. I didn't think my neighborhood was rough, even after the road was blocked so the police could process the portable meth lab that was dumped on our gravel road. A few years later, I saw a parade of black SUVs go by my house, and saw on the news that a headless body was found in a septic tank about a quarter mile away. Now I believe that my neighborhood is rough...IF you run with the wrong crowd.

    I have seen that baby daddy billboard along the highway near here, too.

    1. The headless body alone would probably make your neighborhood qualify!!

  6. Once did but didn't know it. My neighbor that I liked a lot lived down the road from me in a rural neighborhood. I was stunned when he was arrested for racketeering and attempted murder. I also had a duffle bag with 3.5 million in cocaine dropped on my property from an airplane that was being chased by drug enforcement. Sometimes it is best not to know.

    1. Close your eyes, put your fingers in your ears & sing "La la la la"!!

  7. Our neighborhood is old, diverse, and fairly quiet. A while ago, there was a drug bust right around the corner from us, but we didn't know anything about it until after the fact. In the scheme of things, I'd much rather live across the street from a quack house than a meth lab. :)

  8. The police car on cinder blocks really cracked me up.

  10. Those crack houses do bring down values...I know a blogger who lives in a quack house.
