JP's security alarm
« on: June 20, 2012, 10:37:33 PM »

1. Go to Goodwill and buy a pair of size 14-16 men's work boots.
2. Place them on your front porch, along with a copy of ‘Guns & Ammo’
3. Put four giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazine.
4. Leave a note on your door that reads:


Betty Sue, Duke, Slim, & I went for more ammo and beer. Be back in an hour.
Don't mess with the pit bulls. They got the mailman this morning and
messed him up real bad. I don't think Killer took part, but it was hard
to tell
from all the blood.

Anyway, I locked all four of 'em in the house. Better wait outside. Be

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called the government. They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

The old story that used to go around was some people who had a cabin in the mountains.  They really didn't mind people using it, but when they posted things like "enjoy the cabin, but please clean up after yourself" they would come back to find the place trashed.  Finally they tried just locking it and people would kick in the door and still trash it.  They got an NRA sticker and put it on the front door.  Then they put a note on the door that said "Jake, I'm up in the north meadow hunting sheep.  Be back when I get one" and no one ever broke in again.

I may need to get a sign that says if the dogs don't get ya the four foot lizard, three snakes and eight scorpions will likely take up the slack.  :-D

My work shop has large spider webs in them with large shed spider shells. I never clean them off. Never had any one try to break in through the windows either.  :-D

A swarm of bees in May is worth a load of hay; A swarm of bees in June is worth a silver spoon; A swarm of bees in July isn't worth a fly.
