My daughter, granddaughter and I went to see Puss in Boots last night. It was a cute movie.

But I was all excited over the previews. I saw there was a new penguin movie coming out, Happy Feet 2. You all know how I like penguins.

Another preview that got me excited was there is a new Tim Burton movie coming out. Dark Shadows. I love Tim Burton movies.

The Pedersen Device (named for it's creator) replaces bolt in 30-06 rifle, converts to a semi-auto 30 cal pistol cartridge. They WERE issued, generals did not like them (needed two types of ammo) were scrapped, only handful survived, value SEVERAL thousand dollars.

These neighbors are from a different country. They are probably in their mid 50's and have grown children and grandchildren. My daughter noticed one of their grandchildren was a little girl and my daughter had a bunch of clothes her own daughter had outgrown. She brought them over to these neighbors to see if they wanted these clothes. They got very angry and waved her away. The only thing I can think of maybe is in their country, offers like that are implying they can't take care of their own families but I'm not sure. *shrugs*
Okay. And now my daughter came home from work today only to find her recycle bin gone.

It's ticking me off...........

Time for some explanatory talking to with the neighbors. They need to know who the bin belongs to or who is responsible for it and what they will have to do to get their own.

They also need to know what will happen if they "borrow" it again.

So... You know those yellow speed limit signs? I always thought they were more of a suggestion than an actual law... Yeah, you can totally get a ticket for driving too fast around a corner. I plead ignorance

I think the reason why they took my daughter's is because they don't speak any English, but their grown kids do and to order one you need to call the waste management people and ask for one. My daughter is not very confrontational and is just going to order a new one. They are free. Even though my daughter just shrugged he shoulders and said "Oh, well" I'm a little ticked.


What WILL happen if they borrow it again? I don't know how to handle this, really. Any suggestions, anyone?

*sigh* I wish I had enough money to buy more guns. At the rate of one per year, it'll take me forever to get what I want. *cry*

When fish breath oxygen, where do the actual oxygen molecules come from?
