My picture for the day is a ladder propped up against the condo where we are living. A crew is repairing the gutters and the ladder has been up there since the day before New Years. The crew took off on the 31st and have not yet been back.
Yesterday I realized that this ladder would be perfect for any dastardly crooks who might be lurking in the neighborhood. I don’t know if that is even remotely possible but after spending thirty five years in the country where it’s easy too feel safe, I still had to wonder about being a city boy.
Anyway, I went out side and tried to take the damn thing down. Not a chance. I couldn’t even budge it. Now What??
We don’t have firearms in the house to protect us and I have let my judo skills get rusty over the years so I couldn’t much depend on that either. I ended up getting my stapler gun and putting it beside the bed. The stapler wasn’t loaded but I figured I could bluff my way through any confrontation that might arise.
Of course, we also have our trusty dog, Poco but I don’t know how she’d react. Too bad she’s not Rin Tin Tin.
