What The Deuce?

It was a quiet Sunday afternoon. Then the coppers pulled up with the K-9 dogs. Then the streets were shut down.

After a while a firetruck and ambulance showed up, then left. Then the big truck came out and put down their braces and got the big ladder out. Much to the delight of the the kids in the neighborhood.

Undercover police on the scene had to convene to probably discuss this damn car that was in the way. Like the owner knew that some jackass was going to run from the cops in a stolen car, then ditch said car in our quite little neighborhood and shimmy up onto our neighbors roof.

Ladder is finally in position.

Let's send up the rookie in the bright fire coat because it's only ninety five degrees outside!

"Hey Chief! Found something."
"Don't touch anything! I'm coming up!"
"Yup. Found something."
Do note, the chief is not wearing big heavy jacket in the ninety five degree heat. Nor does he look like a rookie up on that ladder like the previous fire dude.

And like all guys in authority they have to stand around and discuss.
"Is it drugs?"
"Yeah, it's drugs."
"Everyone agree?"
"Aye."
"Drugs, it is."
"Nothing to see here folks..."


Don't you wish you were my next door neighbor? All this action plus my sparkling witty conversation and food, because I would feed you. Imagine all the fun we could have? Here's the actual article from the newspaper and the robber was a little bloody afterwards.

I sure as heck wish I was your neighbor, and lived in a house like that for so cheap! Homes in our area are sooo expensive!

Wow - good food and hot firemen? I'm soooo there!

You get to have all the fun.

Of course I wish I was your neighbor! ;)

Very exciting! That happened on our street once, minus the rooftop pursuit and fire engine. In other words, not nearly as interesting.

Kristin said...

I'll take the food, but no thanks on the drug-toting, roof-climbing criminals.

Sharon said...

Nice play by play. i always like a little excitement in my life plus some good food and stimulating conversation. Consider me your new neighbor!

But did they catch the guy?

Biz said...

I had excitement this morning too! A small bar by my house burned this morning.

I didn't even hear a thing! Not even the school calling saying that the buses weren't running because of all the fire equipment.

No one was hurt though, so that's good!

Terri said...

Wow. You have much more fun in your neighborhood!

Funny stuff...

melissa said...

Fun. Yay Stockton.

Still. I'm with comment #1. I could so afford that house. And I even like it cause it has brick and wood.

But buying down here? Impossible.

I don't know why your title made me think of this video in particular, since he doesn't say that exact famous line in it...

melissa... wonder twin powers activate!

biz... the robber well he didn't fair so well.

everyone else... house is way over priced! seriously it should only be in the 200's even the realtor says so but the dude who owns it is 90 and has no mortgage, so he's getting every little drop of money he can get!

Jen said...

We are almost neighbors! I am in Manteca...small world!

Mrs. L said...

Why do I have this photo of all of us on your lawn drinking beer and having awesome food while watching the events in the neighborhood.

At least it wasn't because of something you left on the stove. It is always much more entertaining when it is down the street.
