Perhaps CJ and I just need a little bit of wildness in our lives, to spice things up even more these days! Who knows!
Last night, CJ and I were sitting in the livingroom watching one of the years most riveting movies, Spellbound, when all of sudden we heard SMACK, SMACK and then SMACK again.
Immediately we knew something was up. CJ quickly got his keys and the cell phone and in his sleep pants and “bedroom slippers,” he went outside to see what was going on.
Watching nervously from the door, I saw CJ look at our both of cars and then at me. Each car had the driver side mirrors smashed. He signaled me that he was going to see if he could find the culprits.
Quickly I called 911 and reported the incident, while CJ drove away. Within minutes, CJ had found the kids and began trailing them. Apparently they were in for a night of fun, as they traveled down the street hitting each car with some sort of gadget.
At some point they must have realized that someone was following them. So they turned a corner and disposed of the incriminating evidence in a neigbors front yard. Then they went to a convenient store and stored their bikes in a van, driving off with their mom. We still don’t know why she was there.
Meanwhile, I had 911 contact CJ on the cell phone. They sent out several police cars to track down the “situation.” Through the 911 operator and CJ the police found, CJ and the vandalizing kids.
The kids fessed up to the crime after CJ told the police to look in the back of the van for their bikes and in the neighbors front yard for the device used, a magnum light. Thankfully, their mom has agreed to pay for all the cars that were vandalized.
CJ, is my hero! The police actually said that my husband did all the work for them!
I praise the Lord today, for my husbands swift actions, safety over him, and for a quick vindication.
