Strange World

It was another beautiful summer day on Thursday.

Around 9:00 I heard a helicopter. It didn't move away, so I went outside to see what was going on. It was slowly circling over the buildings and it said POLICE on the side.

I went back in and remarked how strange I thought it was. Courtney said they were probably looking for the guy who robbed a local hotel this morning (I hadn't heard about it).  Someone else came in and said Plymouth road was temporarily closed as well.

Sidebar: Why would anybody rob a hotel. Everything there is usually done with credit cards.

I had to go to the hardware store, so I ate at Big Boy again (its right across the parking lot). In the hardware store, the checkout lady was telling me about the hotel robbery and she said the guy was wearing (what else?) a clown mask!

When I got home after work, I turned the news on. The story got even stranger. Turned out the cops were in pursuit of the guy down Merriman Road when he started shooting back at them. I don't know if they stopped the pursuit so nobody else would get hurt, but the clown got away!

I worked in the garage while it was still light out, then I came inside.

I made a tuna fish sandwich for my dinner, watched a little TV and then went to bed.


  1. "Why would anybody rob a hotel?

    He is a clown and it is almost Halloween. Perhaps he has a couple ghost friends who are in desperate need of sheets.

  2. Interesting observation. Oddly enough, he extended his crime scene all the way down to Ohio where the FBI finally grabbed him. We live in weird times, my friend...
