A few more bits and pieces

There were a few comments/emails I want to address.
Kim- I can't get those people from my last post out of my mind either. If it were only the adults I could shrug it off and hope they didn't fall asleep at the wheel and hit someone else on the way home but those kids, especially the youngest will not get out of my mind. I think I will go to the derby this coming Saturday night just to see if they come back.
To whomever emailed me about the snakes- I admit it I can not remember who emailed me. I have a bad habit of deleting emails thinking I will remember things and then I don't. To answer your question (which was do I know how to tell a poisonous snake from a non- poisonous snake?) I have a sure fire way I always use to tell about snakes. Some people can tell by the shape of the head, the fangs (hollow or not) or the colors. My method is much easier. I start by running away from the snake screaming at the top of my lungs and stay back until Superhubby finds out what kind it is and lets me know, usually by calling the neighbors one by one until he finds out how far I have gone.

I would do the same thing, Katy. And if they are there again, I would have to go and get a cop or somebody, and say "DO SOMETHING." I just...man, I don't know exactly what. But I do know why you couldn't write about this right away. Let me know what, if anything, more happens because I don't think it's going to leave my mind for a long time.

People delete emails?? If I did that, it would be like deleting my life, my journal. No, wait. Recently I just deleted hundreds of emails that I'd like to forget ever existed.

About those kids, can you call social services before Sat. and see what can be done, legally? Even if it's just to get a license plate # so the police can follow up on it, at least you'll know you did something.
