That could be 1/8".

Who steals a potted plant? Who?

Someone stole a potted plant that was steal in the cheap black plastic pot that it came from Home Depot in, straight out of my landscaping. What's more is they left the tag on the ground where the plant was. It was a $3 plant people, get a life. Clearly these people have nothing better to do.

As for the rest of my plants, their in my witness protection program now on my front porch. Bring it on thieves, I dare you.

fixed it for ya. I know it was implied but there is non-poisonous sumac which is actually quite tasty and can be used to treat poison ivy.

Well the one they took was a thorny one while the one next to it was just flowers. I think it is kids messing with me because the other day my american flag hanging above my garage was in the driveway and it had been unscrewed from the pole.

You live in town? In my rural environment I would invest $2 in one of those 100 round strings of firecrackers, yelling like someone put my sack in a vise right after the first one exploded.

Visit your neighbors and "explain" to them that you are legally required to notify the neighborhood that you are a convicted sex offender. Kids won't come near your place after that.

I always blame the wife or kids. I'm not saying it's their fault. I'm just saying I blame them.

The problem is, I don't know of any kids that live anywhere around me. Mostly older people.... And some gangsters next to me but I'm trying to be extra nice to them so they leave me alone
