Yeah. I got a drop box today. After $100 worth of spray, I managed to kill half the blackberries. My neighbor, an old cop, is dying. COPD. That's supposed to make you an asshole, but hell.. maybe he's trying to get into heaven now. I hated the stupid SOB years ago because he was such an asshole. Unaccustomed to dealing with his neighbors as anything that he couldn't write a ticket for nothing.
Now he's just an old bugger with an oxygen bottle, thankful that his neighbors will show him a little love.
The mighty hath fallen. I think I liked him 20 years ago when he was an asshole better. In keeping, I try to make sure that he still thinks I'm an asshole when I'm doing him a favor.
That's only dignity.
Always has been a dickhead with "small man syndrome". Not so much now. We do look after him a bit. It's something he finds completely unexpected. Too busy busting people for nothing than examining their heart.
I did offer to stick his binoculars up his ass one time. He was watching me. "I'm a cop." "Do you think that would save you?".
Today, I snuck up on him and mowed his lawn and mine. Given we are both old soldiers and have culpable deniability, the act will be taken without comment by either of us.
Also, without comment, BB will enjoy a brief conversation on his porch tomorrow.
A joke. I deny any involvement. Must have been Santa that mowed his lawn. I do know even in his asshole way, he helped something some time.
Good nuff for me. As a detective, he did bust a serial killer of our mutual acquaintance, because I fed serial killers buddy a Monte Carlo... or parts thereof.
Told me to "You should be more careful". That wouldn't be in my nature. It also was something I didn't understand for a long time. I thought he was being a dickhead. I actually didn't understand what I beat the shit out of for 10 years. I saw an attempted rape in progress and .... got pissed. Very, very pissed. Dumb ass pulled a knife. I told him to walk away. Lucky I didn't catch a cap. These guys liked raping old ladies and shooting people with a 22 because it hurt.
So anyway, after Cesar Barone killed his last victim, the pulverizing that I gave Len Darcelle made the boys easy to find. I did not know this for 10 years. Just the warning of my neighbor. "Be careful".
No shit... Mr. H. Luckily in his career and my life, murderers usually don't come up.
Barone died in prison. Darcelle is not ever gonna get a parole. Might get out in 2015. I better not see the SOB. Somehow, when we go through the system, we missed. Darcelle is as bad as Barone. Maybe worse.
I will kill Leonard Darcelle on sight. Len. If you read this... you better have made your peace with the Lord. Hurting children, raping 70 year old ladies... you'd be gone before you hit the ground.

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to hide the bodies of people who pissed me off.
