Ok, it wasn’t Janie, but it was a strange man who walked right through the front yard of my cottage carrying a rifle. Yup, calm as you please he walked right by my window with a gun while I was eating dinner. I thought he might be the guy from two cottages down, but I wasn’t sure. He and his companion were headed that way. So of course I put down my fork (I should have kept it, at least I’d have had some kind of weapon) and did I do what any right thinking person with common sense would do? Did I call the police to report that there was a man with a gun walking around? No, of course not. If I did that I wouldn’t be me! I put down my fork and walked right out my door to follow him and ask what he was doing walking around brandishing a weapon when I have children that play outside here.
So I caught up to him and confronted him with exactly that question. Needless to say, I felt naked without my fork.
