So the daughter did the cold call to the schmuck yesterday. It was from the police HQ and they were monitoring the call hoping he would say something to incriminate himself. It was obvious to all he was ready and knew exactly what to say. He suggested this wasn't the first time this had happened and that if she was having these sorts of things occur while she had been drinking then perhaps she should consider not drinking. Needless to say someone she told, told someone who told him. So - no case. I truly believe though this guy will get what's coming to him one day. Karma plays a big part in life and someone will teach him a lesson. For now the daughter is just pissed off and so are we.
Apparently yesterday while everyone was at work someone stole the catalytic converter out of our neighbor's Toyota truck. It sits in the driveway and is rarely used. According to the police this is pretty common lately so needless to say I am watching my Toyota really closely.
So Hillary won Pennsylvania. I didn't see that coming, I must admit. Just the thought of her being in the White House makes my skin crawl.
Still no list from International Pen Friends... I am going to write a letter today and get it in the mail tomorrow. I don't remember how long it's been, but it's been WAY TOO LONG.
The tutor is on hold for now. The son is deciding his next move and after a long talk again last night we are hoping he sees things a little clearer. Time will tell.
Yesterday the DH and I read in the Marine Corps Times that young Marines do not like being called "Devil Dogs". They feel like it's derogatory and an insult. For those of you that don't know the term Devil Dogs refers to the nickname given to the Marines who fought at Belleau Woods in WWI. The Germans nicknamed us that after the conflicts. It's a proud tradition and has never been associated with anything bad. It's an honor to be referred to as a Devil Dog. The young Marines can kiss this Retired Gunnery Sergeant's ass.
