OMG negirl, what a horrible incident about the violinist. Sad but true, yet another lesson to be learned in keeping yourself safe.

And who the heck doesn't have a cell phone these days? Ran out of gas my foot.

Dh sez the reason wht so many folks up here have a 'ban the safe act' sign (new law against large magazines of ammo in guns) is really a clear statement of 'why, tes, we are armed in this house.'

Iron screen door or not, if they really want in they will get in. After you shoot be sure to fire one into the ceiling, the 'warning shot'. Forensics can't tell in which order they were fired.

I don't have to do any of that. I already look the part.

I just ordered the "world's most powerful whistle" from Amazon, lol. It's supposed to work even under water.

LOL ani, I have a litterbox by the front door. They run!

Yeah, I'm going to be healthy for Labor Day. Go away, sinus infection and cold! I have hope.

Seriously, nada. Just me and DH hanging sharing our ailments. Hopefully I will feel better and put up some more junk on ebay.

Story not about wasp spray, but about opening front doors:
Before I got the iron door at my last house, I was working in the kitchen and the doorbell rang.
I went and opened the door.
Shocked, and horrified faces on religious pamphlet people.
I had been cutting up a huge hunk of deer and opened the door with a bloody knife in my hand.

Yeah, I did it on purpose

LMAO Gand. Nothing better than a gal who can kill, gut and butcher her own deer. (not me)

I would think an NRA decal near the front door would be a deterrent. Of course, to be convincing, you really should have a pickup with a visible gun rack in the rear window.

And a good dog. Or two.
