Detective Arola, who looked like Columbo said, “Please Mam, can you be clearer in your description? If we are to find your purse we will need as much information as possible.”

Ms. Jackson said, “First, he had squinty eyes, a large nose and ears, and was wearing a white-collared cape.”

Do you draw at all Mam? Arola asked. “Well, yes I do sir. I gave a nice drawing to the officer at the scene.” A statement from the lady that the officer could not believe.

As the handsome detective rolled his eyes upward he said, “It was a dog?!?

Growing up in my village in the 50s, it was common for the neighbors to watch over us and let us know we were doing something wrong or tell our parents.

Now a neighbor would not do that because they would be told to mind their own damn business.

The kids wouldn’t worry about the neighbor. No. They have to worry about their parents seeing them. A parent way too busy to ever catch them running down the road naked.

The neighbor won’t tell the parents after the last time when they were told off. This can only get worse!

What Are You Adamant About?

As I age, it is increasingly important to know what is in and what is out!

I grew up not knowing where I stood on much at all! Now the grandkids ask, “Grandma, what should I do about this? And I easily say, what do you want to do?”

I listen carefully and say, “If you want to know, I will tell you. Otherwise, ask someone else.” I am adamant about that. It is almost like I don’t want to waste my time.

The other day I was asked about what a grandson should do about having a girlfriend that may be considered related in the culture way. I knew exactly what to say about this!

  • Lol, a dog! Although you posted the dog pic before the story, I still didn't see it coming! Excellent plot twist! I'm also more or less like that, I'll just tell people to do what they wanna do. Loved all your stories!
