    Actually 2 stories with this. First one an 81yo man tells the Sheriff he's gonna get a gun and carry it everywhere after being robbed multiple times - better late than never, I reckon. Lesson here is that not all "bad guys" are guys, but both often show up in groups - Is 6 or 10 rounds really enough? Maybe, but maybe not.

    The second one is more about the girl gang that's been doing the robbing in his neighborhood.


    And a very similar , but unrelated, story from Boaz, TN. This time 3 meth heads. 1 in the morgue.

    Every man has a limit or breaking point when he has had enough. I suppose he had over 80 years of taking. I know that when a man retires, he does not want to spend the last years upset because idiots have no RESPECT for elders or their selves.

    There's a shirt I want with the Jolly Roger on it that says "f*** everything and become a pirate."

    Funny how that works. Back around 1812, the British were calling my great ancestor (Capt. Zach) a pirate. Actually he was just one of the many merchantmen running their blockade. :)

    At the great risk of impressment, perhaps the primary casus belli of that conflict.

    Seems 'spin' is not a new practice, just one with a new name.

    I like the idea but I’m from Jackson and we knew better than that, in the 70’s. I still keep everything locked up now that I live in the sticks.

    In the 60's, we only threw the latch on the screen door at night. This was in S. Jacktown:eek: but did move out in 1973. Only problems in the 'hood at that time was a long haired hippy down the road who was on drugs pretty bad. His whole family was. I won't name the name but hope he and his family are better now.
