ALERT CITIZEN OF THE WEEK SO FAR

1714 — A Wallis Court resident reported she had a bomb from World War II, and would like someone to check to see if it is dangerous. An officer took pictures of it and forwarded them to a bomb specialist to get more information.

1736 - A Wallis Court resident reported a grand piano was stolen from her home. Shipping materials were found outside the home indicating a Miami destination.

I sure hope there is a follow up on this, I will be all hinky until I find out WAS IT A BOMB or was it a fake bomb? people want to know.

Take it to the airport. They have all the information on stuff like that.
(Sits back to watch).

It must have been real. On Thursday: "0926 — The bomb squad and police and fire units responded to Wallis Court to detonate the World War II bomb that was reported Wednesday. It was safely detonated on the Harold Smith and Sons property."

If you read the next day's news, you'll find that the police returned and exploded it. So I guess it WAS a bomb.

My favorite item in the list was about the kid out after curfew and when the mom asked the police to tell him the curfew rules, "He wasn’t interested in what the officer had to say."

What I want to know is did anybody help the grandson get home from Canada?

' 0850 - A small coin purse with a picture of Igor was lost on Main Street '

...that's 'I -gore'

She had been using it as a coffee table all this time, until her nosy neighbor said "it's a bomb,
Shirley."

Other people had told her the same thing but she misunderstood them to be saying "it's the bomb" which she thought meant they were extremely jealous.

"Police suggested that she extinguish the fuse until the report comes back."

UPDATE (1/13/2010):
0926 — The bomb squad and police and fire units responded to Wallis Court to detonate the World War II bomb that was reported Wednesday. It was safely detonated on the Harold Smith and Sons property.

In case you were up at nights worried....

She should have taken it to one of those antique roadshows to have it appraised.

his mother asked police to tell him about the city’s curfew for juveniles. He wasn’t interested in what the officer had to say.

What else is new? Probably out watching a bomb be detonated.

Bomb lady's appointment book:
9am-Beauty Parlor
10am-Bridge
12pm-Lunch with Sylvia
1pm-Call police to see if coffee table is a bomb.
3pm-Coffee with the gals

The statements I enjoyed (?) said ... "the police were out of position ... "

Out of Position?

The last time I used that phrase, it got me a Technical Foul ...

HEY, y'all PREverts! It wuz in a basketball game ... and the ref din't appreciate me callin' attention to his shortcomings ... um ... inappropriate execution of his duties? ... um ... failure to complete his task at hand?

Dang, I give up ... no way to say it without providin' more fodder for the misinterpreters ...

Don't forget the mister interpreters.

O the U I didn't realize that ref's could get so mad at a towel boy. That's a shame.

Not only towels ... given the proper (?) circumstances, I also do massages ...

She had phony cankles.

Braniff - I sent the one in about the kid violating curfew along with the bomb report (as well as the follow-up report the next day, I guess Dave wanted to keep the suspense alive). The guy who writes the police log clearly has a sense of humor.
