    Granny Thwarts Intruder...In The Buff!

    Last night was a wierd one. After it all got sorted out, I have to say that I'm very glad I live in a state that encourages and rewards citizens who choose to arm themselves.

    Our Grandmother, matriarch and ruler of this large Kentucky family, had an intruder last night. She lives near campus in an old stone house with LOTS of antiques, but little in the way of 'liquid' valuables. She's 89, and about as mean as the day is long. This woman has lived her life telling it like she sees it and never apologizing for anything.

    Last night, when she heard someone force open the patio door in the back yard, she didn't hesitate a whit before grabbing Grandad's old side-by-side and heading downstairs. She's smart, so she knew enough to leave the lights out and CREEP down the double flight of old stairs. By the time she had the guy located, I guess she was angry enough (not to be confused with 'scared enough') to really want this jerk to know what he was getting into, because, as she took a bead on this guy's head, she shouted at him to get the hell out of her house if he didn't want her to paint the wall with his brains. She flipped the light in the room on just as he turned.

    He ran.

    She got on the phone and called me, then police (no offense, LE pals...she knew I'd get there LONG before a cruiser would show up). By the time I got there, she had the kettle whistling and every light in the place blazing. Man, was she MAD. I'd forgotten just how much fire that ol' gal keeps stoked just below the surface! Lexington's finest came, took a report and checked to see that the place was secure (the door wasn't badly damaged, and after throwing the bolt on the other side, I felt certain that she'd be ok until I can install a new set o' locks), then they split.

    Granny and I talked for a bit, and I realized how much this woman shapes the way I see the world. I'm very glad to have role models like her, teaching me even today how to make right out of wrong. We had a laugh when she said that she wasn't sure if the intruder ran because of the gun...or the sight of the 90-year old, 300-pound naked crazy lady waving it at him!


    Good job, Granny!!

    Glad your Granny is okay. Probably one reason she has lived so long is that she is so tough. Folks from that generation had to be tough to survive.

    Reminds me exactly of my grandma, who carried for decades before it was legal, and would take on anybody if the situation called for it.

    You're right: we are who we are in part because of our grandparents. They shaped our parents, who then shaped us.

    Everyone should be so prepared as your grandmother, and so willing to take care of themselves.

    Good job, Granny!!

    Did anyone think about checking the local ER's to see if a "blind" guy showed up there last night?

    Scary, but good for her, she did a good job and seems to have her wits about her. I hope I can do the same at age 90.

    Back in the 1980's I had an elderly aunt that fired off a couple of .38 rounds in the direction of a BG breaking into her back door. She shot high, the BG disappeared unscathed (though I'm not sure about his drawers). The police came, took a report, and reloaded her revolver for her. BG never returned.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    The image is probably burned into his brain forever.

    Seriously though, I'm happy everything worked out alright. Tell your grandma that we're all proud of her.

    You have to love our seniors and the way they do things. I was on the way to the farm one morning and my mom calls and tells me she and the dog have a coyote cornered in the barn. I ran the speed up to about 85. I was afraid that the coyote might be rabies. I rolled up on my mom (76 years old) standing there with a rifle ready to shoot. Makes a great picture. Congrats to your granny.

    It was definitely the gun. Had he seen her in all her glory, he likely would have dropped dead on the spot from a major coronary!
