Our paper publishes the police notes daily.   There is little crime here so sometimes it's fun to read.   Today's tidbit:

Police received a request to assist individuals who had forgotten where they'd parked.

4:13 PM:  Officers received a report of kids riding their bikes too quickly on Seagull Street.  They attempted to contact the parents.

2:45 PM:  Big Red was reported to be loose and causing a traffic hazard on South Avenue.  The responding officer called the number on the animal's tag and left a message for its owner, and a neighbor walked the animal back home.   There was no mention of what type of animal Big Red is in the officer's report.

"Officers received a complaint of a loud tennis instructor on Ray Street.  The caller specified that the complaint should be added to the log, but no police officer need respond."

  Why even call if you didn't want anyone to come out?!?

My guess is they are building a complaint file against the tennis courts.

Sunday, 12:39 AM:  Caller reports a man yelling loudly for more than 45 minutes.   Police find the yeller at home; he was watching the Mayweather vs. McGregor fight and said he would pipe down.

Good one! We had a family of Sox fans here one night who were yelling at the TV. I got Gomez up because I had no idea what was going on. Opened the door of our apartment and it became obvious. As they were only keeping each other awake, we went back to bed.

Next morning we disavowed the idea they kept us up.

Hi Seashanty. One of the funniest cards I ever received was of

an enormous herd of sheep in the road with the caption

"rush hour in Scotland". I got it in the 80's and still have it!

 

Love those sheep.

That last one is sad. I'm guessing it means in the actual roadway, but possibly not. What's sad is that 'back when I was a kid' any person walking by would have told us not to play in traffic. Now they call the police.

If they called the cops for that here, the cops would have nothing else to do. Where the heck else are you going to play street hockey. Heck, adults pay street hockey here.

But you will play hockey in the street.

I'm not sure anywhere else but NYC does the fire hydrant thing. I've not seen it anywhere else.

Winnipeg Manitoba. When we were kids this was wonderful times. Love   when they opened them up. Sad when fireman closed them.  Hot days high heat . 

Fire ball running down the rail way tracks. 

Wonderful  lighting shows . Northern lights dancing in the sky.  Flat land bring some neat experiences.

Those were the days.

I was trying to explain what a racoon was to DH the other day - he understands what they look like but its their behaviour he struggles with. Im like well its sort of like a really cute fox with with opposable thumbs so it can get into your trash cans and have a party more easily!

We once had a pet raccoon.  She and her siblings had been rescued as infants when the mother had been run over.  Since the vet and the staff had been caring for them before they opened their eyes, they thought they were human.  Very friendly.  Now the vet also had a litter that were rescued after the young had opened their eyes.  They were NOT friendly at all and had to be cared for with very thick gloves.   Like night and day!  

Princes was a great pet for a while.  She had a cage and when frightened would run in and close the door.  She loved playing with shoe strings, small balls and other toys.  When she matured she would wander off in the woods, for hours at first, then days until she decided to not return.    

They are very smart.  We have one that is now coming to where we feed the chickens.  Has learned how to open the PVC feeding tubes so they can get a free meal.  Very aggravating as we find a way to out smart them.  But I rather they feed on chicken FEED and not on the chickens - or their eggs.

They are also nocturnal animals and carry diseases like rabies. NOT friendly animals.

If cooked properly, tasty. Their skins are also used for coats and hats.

IN our previous house, we had a screened porch attached to the kitchen.  In the summer, we'd leave the kitchen door open because it was screened outside the door.

One night, after watching a movie, we came out of the living room into the kitchen and found a raccoon eating the cat food!!!   It had come through the cat door on the screened porch and through the open kitchen door to the 'free' food.   

We had to believe he had been there before.   Lucky for us, when we shouted, he ran out the door instead of hiding under furniture or running upstairs.

We closed the cat door after that.

 Every day in Scotland, these sheep stroll into the road and stand there. Just when we would think they were on their way, a few would stop and stare us down. Get out of the car, and they'd rush over. You can't see them but there are about twenty beyond that wall to the right of the bridge. We know whose road it was ... sheep rule there. You just had to wait.
