Last night at church one of the ladies there was telling me about and incident several years ago. It seems that someone was trying to aggravate, scare or spook her. She thinks it may have been her sister-in-law but that is another story. For awhile someone kept rearranging things in her yard or carport, ringing the doorbell, scratching on the doors and windows and all sorts of things. It became quite distrubing to her and her neighbor. One morning her neighbor told her that she had gotten a gun and the next time she saw anyone in the yard or carport she was going to shoot and it was not an idle threat.
Well the lasy from my church was talking on the phone with one of dthe local busybodies the next day and told her about the neighbor getting a gun and promising to shoot whoever she saw in the yard. She knew that word would probably get to the person doing the aggravating. For some strange reason the scare tactics stopped and she never had another incident after that phone call. Just the mere threat of being shot seemed to take care of the situation although the neighbor was ready to shoot someone.
