An Encounter

A few days ago I mentioned the SUV parked across the road with the driver viewing us through binoculars. Well, earlier tonight I was in the back yard watering the pine seedlings and my garden plants. From where the SUV was parked this time, the driver could not see me, which was exactly as I planned. Twice I went in the house through the back slider and peeked through the kitchen window and could still see the SUV's bumper. So out the back slider I went, headed for the southwest corner of our land. Once there I'm on a two-track which leads back to the main road. I twisted my long hair on top of my head, donned a flannel shirt over my T-shirt and grabbed a walking stick my Dad had carved. Once at the road I turned north, crossed the road and intensified my lopsided gait in an attempt to look unlike the person he/she had viewed in the past. Within a couple minutes I was along side the vehicle and grabbed hold of the door handle. Don't know who was more shocked, me or the occupant. But the mystery watcher is now revealed and appropriate calls have been made.

In light of my discovery, I have posted some Anonymous comments that came in over the past few days. I doubt the prying eyes will return. His fraud and annoyance and outright lies have been exposed and now he'll suffer the consequences. And to him personally I say, "remember this evening when you thump your Bible in any one's face."

The rest of you have a great evening and keep prepping. Treesong

Good for you! There's no excuse for that kind of behavior - I'm glad you took matters into your own hands. :)
