Figured it was time to talk about our local paper's crime column.

Over the weekend, we had a lot of people hitting other people for various/no reasons. Some of the hittees knew the hitters, some hitters were perfect strangers. Today's paper told about a woman being struck in the face by a man. He said she had no business being in his neighbor's house; she said she was invited. Another 'he said' 'she said' situation.

Sometimes they pull guns. Sometimes they threaten and sometimes they shoot. Yesterday an unidentified assailant shot at a car and left holes in it. No one was hurt, thank goodness.

Bikes have been taken from houses, and a lot of stores are catching shoplifters. Cosmetics, work boots, electronics, food, beer... You name it, someone wants it.

We also had someone reporting his flip flops were stolen off his porch.

Whoa! Flip flops? Who'd want to steal flip flops in this cold weather! It was 26 degrees by our outside thermometer this morning!

Makes me feel almost smart when I read about some of these criminals!


  1. Who'd want to steal flip flops in any kind of weather?

    1. Another good question! However, I must tell you that last week, one crime scene item was the report by a woman of getting into an argument with her boyfriend. No hitting, shooting or damaging property so far as I could tell. Just arguing.
