Cheese it! The cops!
10/10/2010 5:07:28 PM
Believe it or not the whole clan got together this weekend. A great time was had by all…well most of us. Jayne had dislocated her shoulder recently, and put on the best face that she could. Kim, Louie and Matt crashed at the far-back in the camper, but not before we partied around the bon-fire for hours on end. The twins were looking alike… and Louie? Well Louie was Louie. You gotta love him. Pam was just back from her two and a half week vacation at her sisters, and I am just getting over a nervous breakdown (kind of) from Pam being away. Our Thanksgiving Dinner consisted of pizza and KFC since the pork roast wasn’t behaving. I know...I know it’s supposed to be turkey…so sue me. Well as the night went on Jayne was really sore so she went to Windsor to have her shoulder checked out again or to see what they could do. After a couple of hours she called me and said “Hey I’m just entering LaSalle. How in the hell do I get home from here?
Well it looks like she went the wrong direction on the EC Row expressway.
“Um… You’re going to half to turn around and come back. You went the wrong way.” I really had a hard time doing this, because I knew that she just wanted to be home.
“I don’t want to turn around.” Her voice wasn’t really strong at this point.
“You have to. There is a back way through the county but you’ll get hopelessly lost…especially in the dark.”
Well after about an hour and a half she showed up… but not really too frazzled.
Anyway Jeff and I have the bonfire just a-roarin’ out the back. Matt comes out of the house and tells us that the OPP are on their way. Somehow Aunt Kims’ cell phone went into emergency mode and called 911. She apologized to the operator but they informed her that they have to come out anyway just in case that someone is holding a gun to her head. Hmmmmm…maybe not too bad of an idea.
Well the flames of our bonfire were about 5 feet high because we were burning some brush. I figured that I’ll just throw it all on to get it burnt before the cops come. No sooner did we get the stuff on the rip-roaring fire, and the headlights were approaching the house. The female cop was really nice about the whole thing and didn’t mention the fire. Phew’’!
If I ever turn into a bad guy I’ll make sure that Kim checks her phone at the door.
