Never a Dull Moment in My Neighborhood
Last night, shortly before ten, I was working at my computer in my office. It has a window looking toward the street. My husband was gone for the night because his bed had been moved to the other house to make room for the new one arriving today. So I was alone. For the night.
Suddenly I heard shouts and the sound of the shouter chasing someone. I couldn't see what had happened but it was scary. A few minutes later I saw a police car parked across the street. I got brave enough to go outside and have a look.
I saw one police officer talking to a young kid who was sitting on the curb. I heard the officer tell the kid that “since he was with them, he was part of the problem.” Evidently some other kids he was with had done something. I'm still not sure what or if the other kids got away. I hope the police made an impression on the one they were talking to and that they found out who the others were and dealt with them appropriately. I never did find out what happened, but my neighbor across the street thought they were throwing rocks around, perhaps at cars or windows.
I usually sleep with my windows open in this weather, but I didn't want to do that last night. Fortunately it got cool enough for me to sleep with the windows shut and locked. I couldn't help but wonder if these were the kids that broke into my house two years ago.
