Crazy Man

Thank goodness it is Friday. While I snuggle on my grey merino blankie, and the rain pours down outside, mum is going to meet a friend for lunch in town.

Her niece and nephew Belle and Bud, have managed to get the day off school. In their town, a crazy man has been taking potshots with his gun, and killed one policeman, injured two others and one bystander. He lives a long way from Belle and Buds house, so they will be safe, but the school is closed. Lots of police are gathering in the town, and they will take the crazyman down!!

We hope you all have a good Friday - with no gun toting crazy strangers.

  13. Oh, Poppy, sorry to hear about the crazy man. I bet if he had some luvin' from a kitty, he wouldn't be a gun toting man!

    Thanks for all of the love you and your Mum sent our way.

    P.S. Love the Poppy Houdini. I'd like to hear more adventures with Poppy Houdini. Could be a regular feature?

  14. Too scary. I'd love it if these crazy people had a distinuishing mark to let us know they need to be locked up.

    Ok, guess that won't work, but I can dream.

  16. That sounds very scary, Poppy. It's good to know that you and yours are safe. Hope the police gets their hands on him soon. There's been some shooting here too, thankfully not in our neighbourhood, but it's still scary.

    On a happier note: We love the picture and hope you have a nice (and safe) weekend.
