LIVING IN THE HOOD!


Okay, let me set this up for you. I come home and Mandi meets me in the kitchen with a warm hug and a kiss. As I open my eyes, something catches my interest outside of the kitchen window. Some DUDE is climbing over my backyard fence! Mandi asks if it's the guy who reads meters. I thought it strange he would be hopping 8' fences to cut time. I watched him head to the side gate. I ran out my front door and noticed a cop in front of of my neighbors house. As I went around the side of the house, a guy was crouched down talking on his cell phone. I asked him . . . what's going on here? He stood up acting casual and said . . . awe nothing. By this point, the cop was aware of what was going on and got out of his car and approached us. I felt like my feet were in cement now that I realized the guy they were looking for was standing right in front of me. I backed off as fast as I could as the officer asked the guys name and proceeded to cuff him. By the time it was all over, we had 4 police cars in front of our house and neighbors wondering what the Mackey's had done. Boy, I'm going sleep good tonight!
