Okay, SWAT! No, I don’t mean flies. I’m talking about the SWAT team. Lest you should think they are only the stuff of TV, movies, and fiction, they really do exist. I was out watering my yard on Saturday, and down the street comes a SWAT van and 6 sheriffs’ vehicles in a caravan. This is a quiet neighborhood in the mountains. It’s at a dead end, so it’s not like you can even pass through the neighborhood on your way to somewhere else. I live on a corner halfway down the hill. And lo and behold, the SWAT van stops right along the side of my house. And really, I’m thinking to myself, did I do something bad that I don’t remember doing? Maybe one of my multiple personalities did it. Then all the SWAT guys jump out with their guns and do that crouch run that you always see on TV. Thank goodness they went down the hill, not up to my house. Of course, I rushed in to get the camera because I knew my husband wouldn’t believe me unless I had proof. Unfortunately, I was too late to capture them in that crouch run with their guns. Then the neighbors started pouring out their houses to see what was going on. I swear, people even drove here. Gosh, are we rubberneckers or what! I thought the cops would have told us to get back in our houses, but no, they let us watch. In the end, we learned that there was a robbery in the next town over, and they thought the suspect was holed up in a house two doors down from mine. He wasn’t. So they packed up their stuff and went away, excitement over. Honestly, though, two things struck me, first that I could actually wonder if I’d done something to warrant the SWAT team, and second, that we are all so nosy and excited about someone else’s business. Well, I guess it could have been my business if there was a meth lab in the house that might explode.
Here’s a little update from the last blog, my husband is still gone, and darn, it’s getting kinda lonely around here, even with Star for company. Maybe that’s why I was so fascinated with the SWAT team.
BTW, don’t miss my blog Tuesday 9/8 at The Tote Blog. I’ll be giving away one of my own books, just haven’t decided which one yet!
Jasmine, Jennifer and JB!
