I just now met another Neighbor Lady,,Jen knocked on My door and said
broke Her key off in the front door..I grabbed a few tools and went to
help..I could'nt get hold of the broken part of the key with My
needlenose pliers and She wanted to just kick it in! I had one more
idea tho and picked up the small prybar I had brought with,,stuck it
between the door and jam right by the knob and pried against the jam
pushing the door one way and the jam the other way,,the door popped
open and just a dent in the wooden jam/doorstop for damage..She
from inside and I asked Her to test it to see if it still latched,,it
did so no more adjustments needed by Me..She and Her Boyfriend can
work on gettin the old key out or replacing the entry set with
new..That's My good deed for the day..
I shoulda told Her to get a deadbolt,,it's too easy to gain entry
Are you sure the lady actually still lived there? And that it wasn't the
BF's house, and she was the ex, and the locks had been changed on her? Such
things are not unknown, and it would be awful hard to explain your
participation to a black-and-white that rolled up on the scene.
I installed a security system for a guy many years ago whose sister had let
in some guys who said they were there to move some furniture for her
brother. Then she went to work. They cleaned out his house. they never
found any of it. boy did she feel dumb.
Understood and TY Guys..
If a Sherriff shows up I'll hand Em the tools and My Hikers so They
have the evidence to convict Me for helping a neighbor in need,,there's
a plain set of My tracks over and back!!I'll just tell Em what happened
if it comes up and let the chips fall where they may..The black n white
would have to be a white n gold Deputy Sherriff cause this town is too
small to have a police force..I get what Yer All sayin tho and
thanks..It's usually pretty mellow here..When I crank-up the old Bose
901s I'm about as loud as this town gets!! except for the one and only
bar accross the street occasionally.. On the few occasions when I
thought something was stolen I found it right where I left it later
on,,,all except one small compressor but I might have left that on the
jobsite,,I just dunno..My stuff being borrowed and not returned
tho,,THAT'S another story lately!!
Speaking of the 901s does anyone have a set of the same for sale? I
need two more for the back channels! Gotta make My classic rock(top
tracks DTV)reeeelly shine sometimes!

I doubt if anyone intending on breaking in would go to a neighbor to get
help. After all that just attracts attention to something going on. If
they are into house breaking, they would have brought their own tools.
If you were concerned about her welfare, you'd have done it right. She
could have gotten cold out there. Invite her in to your place to take the
chill off. Open a bottle of wine so she can relax from the stress of this
ordeal. Pull the curtains closed so bright light would not cause her a
headache, may be rub her shoulders to relieve the stress.
Carry on with your good deed.
Hey Edwin,,I like the way You think!!Is Your real name
Casanova?!?!She's a good lookin Brunette!!Just the way this balding
blonde guy likes Em! But,,sadly,,She's maybe 1/2 My age and mentioned a
boyfriend..Not to mention I got slapped for playing with the other
neighbor Ladys' cat while drinking wine!!LOL,,no lie,,was almost 2
weeks ago.. Riesling and insane Strawberry Blondes just do'nt mix for
Me I guess..One minute She was showing Me a photo album and the next
minute,,,whap! AND,,the cat bit Me..
Petting its' head..Then it bit so I thought it was playing and played
back,,not mean tho,,just petted and when it tried to bite again I
pulled My hand away quick..I guess it was "all My fault" but what I
have issues with is the punnishment,,it did'nt fit the "crime" so I'm
not goin back over there..When a woman hits Ya,Ya ca'nt even defend
Yourself,,just leave and stay away from that action..I did tell Her off
on My way out tho,,I was pissed off,,Gettin slapped is rare for
Me,,nuthin I'd care to do every day..
.Not to mention I got slapped for playing with the other
Methinks you were playing with the wrong pussy. <G>
With that thought, and the copius amount of plumbing advice found on
this newsgroup, the following lim seems somewhat OT:
His lordship is frenziedly plumbing,
A barmaid whose pussy is humming!
Since he pleasured her twat,
With the first load he shot,
She'll rejoice in the lord's second coming!
It's all good Guys,,,all good,,no cops knockin down the door yet and
looks like Her car is still there too..Heh heh,,I do'nt remember
exactly when She mentioned the BF,,coulda been after..That's something
I learned a looong time ago,,respect another Guys Gal as His and leave
it alone,,I felt bad for many years the one time I did'nt..Did get a
pretty good Son out of the ordeal tho!! Hard to believe He's 25 now!!
But this is'nt a sounding board and I gotta get My dose of TV plus work
Mr Bundy,,Al,,thanks for the input,,How's Peg and the
Kids?,,hallerb,,thanks for defending Me from Als' scathing tounge.. I
coulda been killed!
Moral of the story,,If Ya do'nt have a deadbolt,,,get one,,,with a 1'
prybar it was quick n quiet gettin Her door open..
I had one like that.
I took a couple of nails and crossed them with their points at top and
bottom of the slot, and turned it.
The key portion still had to come out, but the door got opened.
