Alright... I consider myself 'paid in full' for all the youthful pranks of papering people's houses. This past weekend several young people... and I won't name any names... (Kelly Meacham, Shannon Pursel, Kimberly Pursel- who happened to leave her shoe at my house as she ran away, unknown girl from Iowa Park, and various others) papered and forked MY house after a failed attempt at the Jordan residence.
They would probably have succeeded without being caught had I not been unexpectedly up due to the fact that I had previously washed my bedding and forgot to dry it before attempting to go to bed. I was up an extra hour or so nodding off in the den while waiting for my sheets to dry.
Once I finally did get them dry, I headed to my room to put them on the bed only to hear something being tossed on my roof. Needless to say the evening, or morning, wrapped up to find myself running barefoot down my street in camo P.J.'s chasing the previously stated criminals down with my famous Crusader Camp Supper Soaker Flash Flood... one of my favorite toys.
Of course the real horror of the event has been the last several days. Toilet paper has been stuck in my trees for days and because it continues to rain it simply falls to the lawn in small heaps of mushy goo... only to dry in a few hours and fly around the neighborhood into everyone's trees and yard. A sincere, 'thank you' to everyone involved... (next time I will call the cops... my dispatcher friend tells me it's a $50 a roll fine... well over $600 for the nice little art work on my lawn... :0).
Love in Christ,
