21 March 2008, Well, I got called back home to address a potential gas leak in the furnace, I guess crime fighting will have to be put on hold. Sorry for the long intermission between posts, it's crazy out there. I've decided that 12 hours of college was definitely too much, but I made it to spring break, or as I had to inform our professors, spring homework. The idea behind spring break was the word "break", referring to not having to worry and due school work for the entire week. This is especially important when every student in the class is also a full time worker. But our professors felt it was a good time to do outside projects and continue the theme of homework. Remind me to finish college at an early age next time around.
The family is doing great. We took the opportunity this last weekend to go on another short vacation and went to a state park in Southeastern Oklahoma. We spent Sunday hiking a little more than 4 miles up and down three separate mountains. Mrs. Dub was getting tired of me comparing this adventure to my climbing the Gar back in Afghanistan, but I'm the kind of guy if you tell me what bugs you I'll keep doing it for fun.

As you can see, the girls were worn out.

07 Feb 2008, America's Dumbest Criminals, did anyone ever watch that program. Even Jay Leno does it from time to time. There's nothing like relying on simple human nature to help make an arrest. Today, we had a call that a guy knew where his stolen truck and the suspect where located and wanted us to go get it and make the arrest. Well, we show up and find this is something of an apartment complex and we have no idea what apartment the suspect might be in. We locate the stolen truck. We decide that since the victim gave us a phone number for the suspect, we should give him a call.
phone rings
Hey, is **** there?
"Yes, just a minute.......
Hey ****, I need you to come get me at the corner of 10th and Penn.
Yeah, this is Tony, come meet me at the corner down here, and hurry.
We hang up and wait. One minute goes by and someone exits one of the apartments and gets into the stolen vehicle. We immediately pull him over, and it's our guy. Arrest made.
Mrs. Dub and Miss Dub are doing fine. We are staying busy. Hope all is well with you.
Be safe and have a great day.
