THERE'S A NEW SHERIFF IN TOWN

Yup, you can call me Sheriff Jackiesue now...I made my first shop lifting bust Sunday..This woman came in...maybe mid 20's...Tall blond, pony tail, and with a purse the size of a pup tent. Inky said bird dog her, she's one of those that shop lifts but we can never catch..So I watched what she had in her cart and she had a orange something and a brown something, couldn't tell what it was...So I pretended to be fronting stuff and just kept an eye on her and then all of a sudden the orange and brown disappeared...I told Inky that Thom said I could ask to look in their purse if I thought they had taken something, so I walked around the corner to check her purse out to see her putting one of those small personal fans in her purse. She looked at me and kind of threw her head back as if to say 'oh fuck'... I said 'give me that and put it in the basket and said is that all?...I took her purse and there was little blouse and pair of shorts for a kid about 3 years old...I took it out and said, "don't ever, ever come back here again."...and let her go...I could have called the police and had her arrested, but all I could think of was that little girl. Inky was so impressed that we finally got a shop lifter I thought he was going to hug me..I called Thom and said 'this is Sheriff Denney, I just nabbed me a shop lifter..'...So Thom said he was going to get one of those kid's badges and a little wallet so I could just flip it open and show my badge..ha...
We had a ton of 'Hispanics' (again, exactly where is Hispain?)in the store yesterday..There was a wedding and they were all in getting gifts, gift bags, etc. They looked sooo pretty...All duded up..One lady said they were opening a new Mexican restaurant and it's name was Los Compedanos?....I think that's how it's spelled....I asked them what it meant and she said it was what they called people that worked out in the fields...I said laborers? (not wanting to say peon's) and she said yes, that's it...laborers...so it's like a workers restaurant...They were giving free food to welcome people to the restaurant and they asked me to come..so I went..I was the only gringo there, only 2 people spoke English, but I was made to feel very welcome, and the food was terrific..Just basics, home made corn tortilla's, beef, chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, red and green salsa, rice, a rice pudding, that looked so good, but can't eat rice..I love green salsa...love it...red's ok...but I'm a green salsa gal...and it was the best green salsa I have ever eaten...and hotter than a mother fucker..usually green is pretty mild for me...and i like to spice it up..no need to spice that up...I was sweating like a fatted pig...I tried to pay them but they wouldn't take my money...They took an old restaurant (Cotton Mill Inn) and redid the inside, put in old red leather booths, white table cloths, Mexican music blaring, kids all over the place, strings of light hanging from the ceiling, and lots of good food..What more could you ask?...They will be open for business either Wed. or Thurs. and I will be there for sure...Don't need a translator for enchiladas, tacos, menudo, or togo!...ha..
Today I took Annie to the vets and got her shots and nails trimmed...I thought she would throw a hissy fit..but she was soo good, and I was so proud of her..Got 3 shots and only cost $35. We talked about Henrietta(the vet is Henrietta's son and his wife is the receptionist) and she and I ended up crying ....we both miss her..I told Tom(vet) about the books and that I was going to try and sell them and donate part of the money back to the library in Henrietta's name, because if I didn't she would come back and haunt me..He liked that very much ...
Annie may have been very good at the vets but she is still pissed at me..She has been sitting right by me with her back to me for about 15 minutes..I'll call her name and she won't even turn her head to look at me...Tom checked to see if he could tell if she was spayed, but he said he couldn't feel a scar but if she was spayed when she was young, it would be hard to tell, but if I have had her for 2 years and she hasn't been in heat or had kittens, he's pretty sure she's been fixed...
Today I'm going to go to Jenny and Jason's house. I have all those books for him and she wants me to see all the stuff they got at Lowe's for the yard..They are fixing me dinner..how sweet is that? this is a picture of Jamie and Jenny and Jason in Florida.

Mojo called last night...trying to find out what she wants for her 35 birthday...she's mulling it over..(picture of MoJo in Amsterdam)
Well, I am off for two days and other than taking Annie to the vet, doing one small load of laundry, and running the vacuum, I'm not doing a mother fucking thing...Going to go to video world and check out some videos..Finally watched last weeks Lost episode...holy shit...it gets better and better and better...life is good...
fuckme till I hit pause...

Hurray for law and order and those who uphold it. This may be the start of a whole new career.

I had my cat spayed when she wandered in as a juvenile at a low cost clinic, thinking I would not be keeping her. The incision was less than 1/2 inch long. When I took her to my regular vet a few months later, the techs told me she hadn't been spayed because they were looking for a long scar. If there aren't kittens it's only because there is no uterus.

Oh I love a good mexican food place. That is one reason I love California.
Good on you for catching a thief.

tsduff said...

You tell me how on earth you can manage to lose 6 more pounds, with all that fabulous Mexican food around. I'd kill for some good green salsa/sauce/with cilantro, peppers, lime and tomatillos in it and I can't stop at just one dose. Congrats on the weight loss! And more congrats for how you handled the shoplifter. Not an easy situation I'm sure.

Sheriff JackieSue... it has a ring to it. BTW, mexican food - my mostest favoritest in the world... I'm jealous.

Hispanic - from Hispaniola - an old word name for Spain.

So if they are Mexican, they aren't technically Hispanic.

Just like most whit folks aren't actually "Caucasian."

Language is fun!

Hey bitch! Congratulations on the Big Bust..and I am NOT talking about the one on your body either. I wish you'd called the cops though so you could have made your local newspaper's police blotter.

Are the kids in the picture the ones who love me? LOL. I want to see who my fans are.

I'm so retarded that it printed twice. WTF?

Big Tex said...

I just tried to ponder the idea of a Roycroft enforcing the law rather than breaking it, and my head exploded. :-) "Badges? We don't need no steeenking badges!"

And now I'm craving some Mexican food. One of these days when I come down to visit, I'll have to give that place a try.

That Rude Girl said...

I think you handled the situation like a class act! Good for you for catching her and good for you for having the heart to let her go because of her little girl. Hopefully, she will learn her lesson and be grateful for the opportunity you gave her and not do it again!

Annie looks so cute in that bed and your grandkids look cute as ever.

My Amy is a manager of a downtown urban outfitters store and she actually chased a guy down, she had on flip flops, she caught him and brought him back to the store made him dump out his back pack and it was loaded with stuff from the store.

Amy is tiny. 5'3" weighs 110 pounds.

I told her if she ever did that again I may have to go home and smack her up side the head! Jesus she was lucky he didn't hit her. He probably thought if she was crazy enough to chase him down she was probably crazy enough to kill him...she gets that from her mom. :)

You paid $35 for three shots? I had my cat Alpha to the vet last week -- two shots -- flea treatment -- $125!!! I told Alpha that's it, she'll have to get flea-bit and die, cuz she ain't gettin nothing but rabies vacs from here on out.

I gotta make a vet appointment. Thanks for the reminder.

Great job on nabbing the perp! I'd have called the coppers though. Get that bitch off the streets! LOL!

If it's like here you can't actually charge them unless they go out the door but sometimes banning them works better.
Years ago had a lady just before Christmas bring back a $350.00 Chain saw that hadn't been opened yet. She then went shopping for a few things with her kids in tow. Got busted by the security guy stealing $5.99 worth of make-up.
She went to jail and as it was Friday night spent the whole Christmas weekend in the slammer.
She was on probation already for theft. Oh, she was also 8 months pregnant.
Gotta hurry up and finish reading the posts before my meatloaf burns.
Onward and upward...

rudegirl:i could have called the cops, but i really didn't want to..banning her worked for both of us..
yeah, annie loves her princess bed and i do belive i have some beauts for granddaughters..
mcraven:gee, wonder where she got THAT from..haha
anne:plus he trimmed her toe nails, examined her to see if she had been fixed and didn't charge me for any of that..he's also henrietta's son and knows me so maybe i got a deal..don't know...but think that's what the 3 shots are here...see why i love my little town?..
rox:yeah, but who would take care of that kid of hers?...sigh*
nitwit:well, i caught her in the act of stuffing stuff into an empty purse that already had 2 peices of clothing in it..and didn't want her to go to jail, just wanted her to go away..
