when it rains is pours...

it is not quite pouring (yet) I am expecting it to any day now! lol In addition to the 2 vacuums breaking, Dh's van is going to need some work again! I am afraid that dh's van isn't going to last much longer. I hate to keep putting money into it, since it is so old! I also don't like the fact that he drives through the ghetto to get to work, but his other option is the freeway. He works downtown, so the freeway is crazy too! So anyway... his exhaust is going (Perhaps we could compete with the "Genius" family car!) ;o) and his radiator hose has another hole in it. In addition to the Ac/heater not working and who knows what else! We also need to have an alignment done on our big van and at least one new tire! Cars! cant live with em' cant live without em'!

We had some excitement out front our house today! The city has had major problems with fights the past several years. This year the fights have moved to our side of town. Luckily this fight was only 5 kids. I have heard of gangs of 15+ Just about the time i was getting concerned, the police pulled up. We happen to know the one officer. (he is a bad a**) lol he was really angry with these kids. (I am sure the police are tired of dealing with these punks!) so he grabbed the one kid, he must have been smart mouthing him, cause Don picked him up by his jacket collar and carried him across the street and threw him against the back of the police car. All the time yelling at him. (it was funny!) he frisked this kid and yelled at him some more, then picked him up again and tossed him in the police car.
then Don went for the next kid. Don made this kid pick up all the belongings that they had thrown on the street, then took him to the car to frisk and cuff. while the kid was standing there, his pants fell down! lol He tried to pull them up but it only made don angry cause the kid was being frisked at the time. so he was put in the police car too. Next was a girl, she was so scared by this time, she cooperated nicely. While they were frisking the girl, these other 2 kids came walking up trying to start something. I guess they were smart enough to walk away. I told Em that she should go outside and get some action shots for her blog! However she wouldn't to it! I told her she should go out their and ask Don if he could throw the kid against the car again so she could get a shot of that! But! she wouldn't do that either! she tried to get some pixs from the window. I don't know if they came out or not. lol
And you wonder why we don't want to live here...... :o/ this is exactly why we got a dog...

Your eldest didn't want a big target painted on her back -- I don't blame her :-)

I had a dream that a giant fire truck pulled into our neighbors drive way and my mom told me to go outside and take pictures :P
