New moon rising tonight. Is that why we had a little excitement today?
Yesterday we were talking about how we are house poor. Hubby declared he was not going back to work, no matter what. He was "done with working". Okay. Right.
Today we went to the chainsaw shop to pick up his chainsaw which had been in (a long time) for repairs. As we were paying the owner looked out and noticed two city police cars pull in to the neighboring business. We finished our business and got into our truck.
Just as we were backing out of the parking space Hubby saw a figure flying through the back storage yard of the chainsaw business, the two officers in pursuit.
So what does he do? He drove the truck into the back storage yard and ran after the officers.
When he came back he explained that he identified himself to the two officers as a retired officer and asked if they needed help. "Sure!" they said. So they got the suspect surrounded (he had jumped the fence and was in the tall weeds by the river at that time.) They ordered the suspect out, got him on the ground and handcuffed him. At that time Hubby left the two officers to their business.
I guess Police Officers don't ever really retire, do they?
