Sunday 12/5/2010

Wow.  That's all I can say about the story in the news I just read.   A 24 year old "man" enters the bedroom of his parents.  He starts stabbing his father.  Then he attacks his mother.  Dad grabs a shotgun, shoots son, son is dead.

I don't remember reading that before.  "Usually", it's the kid that kills the parents or the entire family, the kid shows no remorse, the kid goes to jail to - get stuff done to him for the rest of his life, or most of his life, anyway.

I can't imagine, really, what it would take to shoot your own son and I don't believe I will EVER have to go there.  I CAN see a husband trying to save his wife's life, but the "extra-added-feature" that the assailant is your own son?  Wow!!!

Okay and now then.  I have spent today cleaning house, putting up some more Christmas deco, went to WalMart for dog food, ummmm, nothing much else.  Well, and try to get the female living in the trailer into the Christmas spirit.  She loves my setup out front, she is still walking around with the "bah-humbug" stuff.  God only knows what must have happened in her life to have that kind of view of Christmas, I only know I am going to turn it up. I put the fancy, silk, Santa Klause I got for free this summer RIGHT there, staring at the door of that trailer.  I informed her that I put him there on purpose.

That's it, really.  Or not.  Lots of things going on - talking with a lady through P of F, interesting situation there.  
Caleb left earlier to hang out with his friends.  My dad's wife fell, smacked her head on the floor and twisted her ankle (ouch!!), life goes on, I guess.

Strange, really.  Life is that way, sometimes.  I am mostly not shocked by such, but that situation with a dad shooting his own son, amazing.  That story was short on facts, but if the facts are that the son is crazy and dad was saving his wife's life, I have no problem with dad killing his son while son is stabbing wife, but still, wow!

G'nite.
