19 September 2007, Well, we had our first drill this last weekend, keeping me busy from Friday through Sunday when we had our "Welcome Back" ceremony. Starting this next month, I'll be drilling back in Oklahoma City.
Work has been fun. Today we went to a house because the 8 year old boy refused to go to school. I had to see the parents who were allowing a boy to run the house. We explained to the parents the subtle differences between discipline and abuse and assured the parents that they could wallop away as long as they didn't cross that line. The 8 year old's response was to pick up a chair and throw it. This prompted us to assist the young lad into a pair of handcuffs and placing him in the back of a police car. Then he was driven to the school and dropped off. He had a much different attitude after we talked too him. His 11 year old brother decided to go peacefully.
Monday, I bought a newer truck. We have been looking since I got back. I've been driving my 1994 for 10 years and it was time to upgrade. Now, I didn't get the crew cab 3/4 ton I would like, but it's a 2001 extended cab Chevy and in very good shape. I took it today and put some new tires on it.
Well, be safe and have a great day.

So happy for you about the new truck. Glad you have a handle on the truancy problems in OK. Ironic that this involved an 8yo and an 11yo - same ages as my kids! My 8yo is a pain some times, but he KNOWS that I'm the boss.

Who knew you were a truant officer!

Kid is out of control...I think you might be seeing more of him over the years.

First: What is your opinion of Taser Boy?
Second: Way to go on the new truck. I am putting off a new vehicle til Brandy gets out of Nursing School. 1 more year.
But I am getting a new 1080p 47" HDTV.

I like Fords but hubman is a Chevy guy all the way. I'm sure he'd say you got a terrific truck!!
The way kids today are being raised is scary. Parents are scared to do anything for fear of the authorities so the dear little tykes know they can rule the roost.
Stay safe out there and watch out for flying chairs!
