Nothing’s wrong with, “Beautiful day, isn’t it?”

I guess I just see it differently. It bothers me when people don't acknowledge this day. It's an important day, and it shouldn't be forgotten. Even though it's a little cringe-worthy to hear people say "Happy Memorial Day" I'd rather they say that than have them not mention it at all.

No kidding. I'd call the police.

What police? There's no law enforcement here.

Maybe the sheriff's dept is a ways away, spread thin and has bigger fish to fry than driving out to try to quiet drunks? Just guessing.

Yes but I live in an isolated rural area, they don't patrol here. My property borders a federal wildlife recreation area (which is where all the weekend nonsense was) so the local sheriff won't go on that at all.


They spend most of their time serving eviction notices and protection orders. Anyway, just another thing I put up with here.

Jim, if the idiots are violating rules on federal land, call the relevant federal LE. For instance, in our area if that stuff happens on BLM land, the person to call is a BLM ranger. If the stuff happens on private property, the person to call is a county sheriff. If it looks like there will be violations affecting both areas, one LE officer might call in the other as well.

Were they trespassing your property to get to the wildlife area or is there designated public access directly to the wildlife area, AND is the wildlife area even open to the public? Contrary to common perception, not all federal land is open to the public. Regardless, when they are on YOUR land, it is county’s jurisdiction. That doesn’t mean the sheriff will actually do anything, but have you tried calling them?

We had a nice quiet day here. Beans and franks and broccoli slaw for dinner and then went to a concert in the park.

They played the salute to the armed forces where veterans stand when their service song is played. Usually when they play Semper Paratus for the Coast Guard, I am the only one. This time I spotted another person on the far side of the amphitheater and we waved. Later we got together and talked for a bit and traded contact information. My wife said that we were like a couple of giddy kids because we were so happy to find someone to talk with about our service time. Finding a fellow Coast Guard veteran in Middle Tennessee is like finding a hen's tooth.

All in all, a good day.

Yes I've called both agencies several times over the years, neither of them care and won't do anything. It's just another thing to put up with here.

Anyway, 38 degrees this morning very quiet night was able to sleep soundly. Had a nice morning walk with the dog, forecast for rain and 50's today. I will sure enjoy that.
