I never thought that living on this street would result in calling 911 so many times a year.

There was yet another fire tonight; this one a car fire on the next block. We'd heard gunfire earlier, four shots, and Wolfie called it in to 911. He turned on the scanner, but there was no traffic. Without a more detailed report, I doubt there's much they can do, and since we didn't know more than "It came from down there" (waves hand vaguely eastward), we weren't much help.

Something was afoot, though, and we both felt it. Wolfie went outside, and I made him take his cell phone with him. Ten minutes later, he called me and said, "Hey honey! There's a car on fire -- come look!" Sure enough, there it was, all smoky and stinky.

We're wondering if the gunshots and the fire were related. Be kinda stupid if they were, but crimnals aren't always the sharpest knives in the drawer.

Living in the city... it's never boring. I'll take chickens over fires any day, though.

i feel: thirsty thirsty

Chickens can actually be kind of cool.

Now geese... geese are the ones you need to look out for.

Am glad I live in the country, where the only thing with neighbor you worry about is that their livestock will molest your dogs. One of my neighbor's ducks really, really likes Indy (the dog in the icon...)

Re:

We don't know where the chicken came from, but he was fat and happy. We were just afraid that it was bred and trained for cock-fighting -- we live in a Spanish neighborhood. I didn't want it coming for my eyes when I tried to catch it. We're thinking that this is "our" chicken, but obviously we can't be sure.
