Well, they didn't come by today...too windy.  Didn't want to mess up their "dos" I guess.  All I'm going to do if they make another attempt, is make a quick call to the police, and watch.  If the officer who was here before asks me if I want to press charges, even though it's "only" a misdemeanor, I will say "Throw the book (pamphlet?) at them.

I also had a long talk with a friend who has been "working the system" for years, and she made some good, sensible, legal suggestions....like getting one meal a day from the Burbank version of Meals on Wheels, and asking what (if any) local ophthalmologists do exams on semi-diabetic seniors, since eye exams aren't covered bt Medicareless...unless you have cataracts.  Maybe I do...I haven't seen an eye doctor in more than 10 years....and they told me I had some tiny incipient cataracts.

Actually, Deborah threatened to come down here from Tacoma (WITH her XLge boyfriend) and beat the crap out of me if I don't start taking better care of myself.  She was serious.

I found the Ugly Cake web site and just shook my head at the CakeWrecks.  If I had turned out a mess like some of those, I would have chopped them to bits before I allowed anyone to photograph them.

Sk8eycat, I think we're all putting imaginary threats to the people who steal our fruit. Let the police handle it.
Or fire a cannon at them!

Bertold, I use my eyebrow for that.

April 14th will be the 100th anniversary of the Turkish slaughter....the Armenians celebrate it the way we do Dec. 7th.  It's their "holy" day.  F*ck 'em!

Felaine, put the phasers on stun.

Comment by sk8eycat on January 24, 2015 at 11:01am

I've been dreaming up imaginary threats, but seriously....I'm going to let the police handle the whole thing....AND press charges for trespassing and theft.  Just make their little hobby inconvenient.

But I would like to see their faces if they were confronted with:

turkey-flag

Comment by Pat on January 24, 2015 at 10:59am

Felaine, if that's the case, I thought of using the flag of the Ottoman Empire, but it's the same as the flag of modern Turkey. If you are going to post a sign, I'd have it written in Armenian. Something to the effect of "To the Lom thieves who live up the hill (or wherever the're at) - No Trespassing and no Stealing." The term Lom implies impudence, shamelessness, beggars, and disreputable and dishonest people. Insult them on several different levels.

Comment by Daniel W on January 24, 2015 at 10:39am

Somehow I doubt the Turkish flags would help.  If they respond at all, and recall the Turkish genocide of Armenians, they might respond by stealing all of the avocados and cutting down your tree, in revenge, thinking you might be Turkish.  I would hate to see you in an ethnic conflict!

I would post a sign stating "You are stealing food from a poor old lady - please be kind!".    Because, that is what they are doing.

Comment by sk8eycat on January 24, 2015 at 9:55am

Pat, they're definitely Armenian...when the police were here the first time they had to call in an interpreter to (TRY to) explain "private property" and "trespassing" to them.  They have some sort of organization(s) that help them emigrate, buy houses, and slowly take over the towns around here that are NOT part of the City of Los Angeles.  While driving property values (but not taxes) down.  The entire city management and police dept. of Glendale is now Armenian....probably 2nd generation....

Trailer trash manners.
