Angry Guess what I found?

A baggie filled with a torn up cigar, cigar tobacco, on my front porch today.

After kicking out an AD (7yrs ago), an AS (1 1/2 yrs ago), and an AH (3yrs ago). I think I have some enemies
round here. I know that baggie didn't just blow up on my porch right in front
of my front door.

What do you think?

I think that's really freaky. And I'd put the word out to my neighbors to call the police if they see anyone they don't recognize hanging around your property.

Maybe I am missing something here...is there something bad about finding a torn up cigar in a baggie? Is that a bad sign or something? Pardon my ignorance of these matters.

I found a dead bird on my front walkway, with its head torn off, lying next to the body. Somebody said it was ******. I put the dead bird in the trash and forgot about it. Nothing bad happened.

Just an ignorant addict prankster, trying to make it look like I had a baggie of pot on my porch. I called the police and he said, just discard it and keep an eye out for anything suspicious.

Okay I have the silver dog bowl. My killer dog (husky/akita) I had to put to sleep last month because he bit a neighbors dog and my sons cheek (he's okay). He was too protective. I loved that dog. We only had him 3 months. Got him out of an add in the paper, free. We were told he was a wonderful family dog. If he were here no one would have entered my porch!! Where do I find a pair of size 14 in mens boots?

I am lucky. One I live in a basement suite so have no front door and two I have the big noisy dog. She is a white german shepherd. Not aggressive but very vocal when strangers are around. Personally I would have just writen down the incident in my journal for reference and thrown out the bag. Some people can be childish with no real threat there.

Get a used pair of men's work boots at Goodwill or other thrift store.

My qualifier broke in 10 years ago and she's been on lookout since. Abner!!!!
If this is true that is SO awesome! I had no idea. Her son is an amazing musician.

I think maybe she is referring to Lenny Kravitz the musician....
Wasn't he married to Halley Barry or some other famous celebrity.

I got the reference to the nosey Bewitched neighbor.... that shows my age over 40 (OK, over 50)

BTW... I think Lenny actually cheated on Halley while they were married???

I'll follow that up with more useless trivia:
Lenny was married to Lisa Bonet from the Cosby show,not Halle Barry

Love where this thread went! Just imagine what Gladys would do with Size 14
Men's boots showing up on your porch all of a sudden!!!

Get a No Trespassing or Beware of Dog sign at the hardware store and put them out
for awhile. Bet that will do the trick....

If all else fails,get yourself a new(nice) big dog to love!

Last night someone tried breaking into my back door. I don't think whoever it was got in. The locks and molding were torn from the wall. I have a chain lock and an old lock that closes but doesn't lock to good. The chain lock was still attached, but the molding half-way torn off. I checked the house, nothing missing.
I went to bed after 1 am so it happened sometime after that.

I would report that to the local police maybe they could drive by at night to keep the creeps away.

I know the patterns of all my neighbors. I guess this makes me the Gladys Kravitz of my neighborhood , except I keep my mouth shut, except for when I do not.....when something seems amiss.

I have 2 dobermans and a German Shepard and nobody comes in my yard who does not belong there. People always call me before coming over.
