It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood

Yes, it IS a beautiful day in the neighborhood. The birds are chirping, squirrels are starting to gather acorns from our oak tree, it's sunny and cool. The dogs are scratching themselves lazily in the shade of the pecan tree in the backyard and...wait, do I hear the sweet sound of police sirens? Semi-automatic weapons firing? Helicopters hovering in close proximity? Why yes I do, Mr. Rogers. It's another day in Bethany. For the third time this year, guns are drawn and shots fired in my neighborhood. OK, actually the guns were only fired on two of the three occasions that they were drawn, but seriously. We need to move. I don't feel threatened or unsafe at all, but the facts would say otherwise. Raise your hand if you've had a gun fired at a neighbor recently. Anyone turned on the TV and seen your house from a television news helicopter? Anyone? I didn't think so.

I did say, "Wait! That's,like, right on Cari's street! Again." Good grief.
