Early interesting Cars:
I don’t really use the term 'cops' often, but I have heard it a few times, ‘I’m calling the cops.’
Have you ever called local law enforcement to report a disturbance or other things such as speeders in your neighborhood?
I was going to tell of the one time I did call local authorities about a dog across the street that barked and barked at the same repetitious frequency it was driving me bonkers, this was long after ‘lights out’ and into ‘quiet time.’
A neighbor I didn’t know had tied the dog outside and left for the night evidently. Animal control came and got the dog. I don’t know what happened as a result, I never heard.
But now, I just remembered an incident when a neighbor’s daughter was blocking our driveway. I asked her to move her car so I could use the drive. She said, “YOU have another F---ing driveway us it.”
Zeke the neighbor and a friend, just
stood there. The daughter ‘cussed me’ using words I had only heard aboard ship
and never in the presence of a lady. My
wife was there. The girl said, “I am calling the cops,”
I said, “Please do.”
We waited, when it was sure no one had called I asked Sherry to call and she did. The officer arrived and in very few words told the girl, “Move the car or I will cite you, you cannot block his driveway.”
She moved the car. Zeke apologized later and said the girl was out of control. That was obvious. We never had another problem.
after writing this drivel someone reported our neighbor for an open
fire. I smiled, this is in a state where sugar cane fields are burned
and the flames go over a 100 ft. into the air.

WE are in our 80’s and that is the only time we have felt a strong need to report anything. How about you?
I have no doubt old Woody (retired LEO) has arrived at much worse situations.
PS: WE support the Blue, where would we be without them? There is no profession under the sun that is completely clean and pure, methinks.
