I am having a chuckle today. I was reading comments left by you wonderful people and one comment from Bobbie, over at Living a Charmed Life, on my "Something Lurks Under the Barn" post wrote,
Im just as scared as you. I hate things that make me nervous and living next to that would make me VERY nervous. Tell Mike to do something. You should not have to - unless you'er annie oakley, xena princess warrior type - LOL! it couldn't be me. good luck. cheers!!
Sooo a quick note about me. Before lupus, I was the warrior type. Mike and I lived remote for a few years. Yes just living off the land. I taught women and kids survival in the woods. I hunted both with a bow and riffles, I cleaned and tanned my own kills and not much makes me nervous.
(Except things I can't see.) LOL
In 1996 Mike and I closed up our frozen North Idaho home and spent the winter in my beloved Arizona. It was the best winter ever. Lots of fun things, very nice people, and an adventure in urban survival. There was a rash of thieves, stealing bikes. Mike and I had our mountain bikes chained to the back of our RV. One night I just couldn't sleep. Kept hearing things outside. Then all of a sudden I hear the chain snap and chang chang chang chang over the bumper. Mike jumped up and in his under wear chased two guys up the street with is 22 pistol in hand. I called 911 and ran after all of them. Mike had just had surgery so running was not a good thing for him.
Sooo to make this long story shorter, the meth head assholes who took our bikes had a PU truck on the side of the road to throw the bikes in and then take off. But because Mike went after them they headed into the desert. The cops had these guys on their radar for some time. We were asked us to watch the truck because of a shift change at the police station. Well sure enough they came back for their truck. We drove up on them as the passenger got out of their car. Mike confronted him while I took a stance and held the driver at gun point.
The police were amazing telling us we did a great job and called me "Annie Oakley".
I got a spot in the news paper and had my 15 minutes of fame.
Now you know why I am chuckling over the comment.
Me, my bike and my gun. LOL

Honor and integrity in art, in life.
