happy saturday!

did i say we had drama in the 'hood?  wow, let's take that up a notch or five.

this morning i woke up to a gunshot.  i'm truly not trying to be coy or sensational, but to spare you the gory details, a neighbor decided to take the law into his own hands and protect himself against another neighbor's pitbull.  it did not end well for the dog.  and it ended right in my backyard.

this wasn't even the drama i was alluding to in my last post.  not even close.  i'll take mean juvie hoodrats, underaged drinking and illicit drug use, street fires, debauchery and general disrespect any day over bloodshed.

but i typed that last paragraph this morning; just now i called the elko pd because the juvie turds just hucked something at my house.  this mommy blog just turned into a police blotter.  so gross.  it would be so great if i were making up this stuff because i'm bored.  

please bless that tomorrow i won't see any guns or blood or mean teenagers.  amen.

I don't think you want THIS kind of fame.

The pit bull wound up in your yard? I think I'm going to be sick.

Do you own a gun? Or at least an air-horn?

i don't think i really have sufficient words for this. a bleeding pitbull in your backyard and... it's making my head implode. all i've got here are a few internet back pats. these ladies up above have some good suggestions, though... i should maybe give you a ring this week...

I'm not even sure how to comment on this post. Sounds like hell. WE didn't have that drama in the Bronx.

I am so so so so sorry.

Who do these delinquents think they are messing with? Do they know you used to live in Mexico, NYC and Hong Kong? You show those turds who's boss. I'd start off by lighting a bag of Gunther's itshay and leaving it on their doorstep.

Just caught up on your last few posts. So fun. Your writing and humor is right up my alley. Love it.
Sorry about the bloodshed. I'm assuming you're referring to Lucifer? In which case, should I really be sorry? :) Speaking as someone who has also had fun 'hood times, hang in there. And in the meantime, if you'd like, I can send you a list of Mark-inspired solutions??? :)

old me.
