    Proud..but interesting lunch @ home today.

    I came home for lunch today. Wife stayed home today from work to take a rest, she's very pregnant, anytime now.

    Anyways, I soon as I come in I notice the shotgun leaning against the wall with the bandolier of shells draped on it, near the couch which she is laying on.

    Me: "What's that doing out?"

    Wife: "Oh! just a little bit ago the dogs went nuts and I heard the back gate shut." " It freaked me out so I got the gun, but I didn't see anyone and the dogs calmed down."

    "I tried to call you but you didn't answer!"

    Me: "I've been in the server room all morning, I don't get signal in there"

    So I go outside just to look things over. The gate (this is a 7ft wood fence most of the yard) is unlocked...hmm, go looking around more and on the other side of the garage in the backyard I see two 16ounce cans of Milwake's best. Empty and warm. Really wierd. On that side of the garage is a waist high chainlinked fence.....That has a door that lets me move stuff from the backyard to the front...it's locked with a thick chain a thick pad lock....they were undisturbed.

    Just totally out of place. All around kinda wierd.

    I had to go back to work so I told wife to keep her head up and keep the piece close. I'll check things more over when I get home. Keep the dogs outside, listen for them.

    After thinking for a bit while back @ work...I'm sure it was the neighbor's guests that threw the empty cans over, disturbed the dogs. AND me taking out the trash this morning and not latching the large wooden gate back good enough so the wind made it bang (which has happened before).

    SO, I called the wife told here what it most likely was. SHe still said she'll keep the shotty near 'till I get home.

    heh.....

    I hate stuff like that. My wife gets creeped out when our dog sits with her in the morning and low growls at thin air. She won't touch the scatter gun though. Even last night he sat under our bed and would occassionally growl that low, menacing pissed off growl.. I was too tired to get up and go look around though..

    Hope all remains calm at your place.

    Living in an apartment, my new next door neighbors last year liked to throw their food containers, beer cans, ect. in my carport. Everytime they did that, it ended up in the bed of their truck, or at their front door. They finally got the message and stopped. I can't believe the disrespect some people have for their neighbor's property. Hope their "friends" don't cause any more problems for you and your wife.

    Yes it's the first. I crushed the cans and added to the recycle pile.
