    I went to the Grocery Store. Excuse me sir, do you have four quarters for a dollar? My son wants to ride the carousel...

    Handsome young man wanted to ride the horses. Sure I have change, saves the mom from having to go inside the grocery store. The young man even said "thank you mister".

    So as he goes around he is playing "cowboy", pointing his finger " and shooting the BGs behind him...seems he was being chased. :p

    Hey, I understand, I was Three once and them BGs do come up from behind.

    "That is totally unacceptable! How dare you raise a child that way!" "Guns are bad don't you know anything?'

    I put out my cigarette, I was just taking in the kid having fun, shooting BGs, and observing a mom and son moment.

    Mom replied -" None of YOUR business how I raise my son - now is it?"

    Then Busybody got in my face, what are you doing robbing the cradle so young and having a child by a Communist?"

    Oh Goody! I am now officially involved. :D

    'Ma'am I usually am respectful of folks, in the event I forget my manners, I don't plan on apologizing, you understand?

    "I just met this lady a few moments ago, she asked for change for a dollar. It makes no nevermind to me what Race, Creed, or anything else she is. She is a human being and she has rights. Furthermore it seems she is raising her kid just fine, letting him be a kid. He has that right too."

    Mom interjects- " I am an American by birth, and Air Force Brat whose parents are American [Scotch- Irish father] and German on Moms' side. I am a Medical Doctor, in attendence for a few days for a conference, I do Orthopedic Surgery".

    Hey, I'm impressed! I stick another quarter in , let the kid be a kid...

    BusyBody- "I'm going to call the Police".

    I suggest she just go inside and get store security, then again this store's Security Guards do carry sidearms. I had to mention that twice just for good measure and all. The Dr. had to turn to hide laughter...

    Seems Busybody was in such a hurry to meddle, when she pulled up , she left her car door open, keys in ignition, and purse on seat, that is where her cell- phone was.

    'Ma'am, as a Medical Professional, perhaps I should call a family member".

    "What for?, Nobody is home today..." Busybody replies.

    "Then perhaps I should call the Police, it is obvious you are not stable and off your meds. Not stable enough to be operating a car. To leave a vehicle with door open, keys in ignition, and purse for anyone to steal, is not very responsible now is it?". :D

    Busy body " Then why don't you fuss at him [me] for smoking?"

    Dr. "None of my damn business, besides I smoke sometimes myself after a long surgery...not all the time, but I do".

    Kid is going around and around, he has gotten the BGs off "his tail", now he has to ride up ahead to find more BGs...

    Busybody storms to her car, slams the door, and almost backs into a car passing behind her. Leaves the premises.

    The kid gets another turn...

    Dr. and I visit. Seems it is no big deal for her husband and son to come along on these conferences. Soon enough - with him getting older, attending school and all it will be more difficult.
    Being an Air Force brat , she really appreciates family time, and being together.

    Come to find out she and her husband shoot, live in a nearby state. Implied was CCW and recipriocostiy of respective states.

    "You know in TX we can shoot folks at night stealing property. Maybe I need to get the legislation ball rolling to shoot folks being stupid and meddling in broad daylight." She said. We were laughing about our joke and attitudes.

    We figured though a good idea, gonna take a lot of ammo in the beginning stages to get things sorted out.

    Busybody dropped her grocery list we noticed. Mostly Frozen TV dinners with coupons...
    Now that might be worth doing a study on to see the effects of TV dinners and Stupidty in Society.

    "Mom...that lady was sick wasn't she?"

    Who says a three year old is not observant?.

    Ignorance is a lack of information,
    Stupidity is a lack of intelligence.

    Ignorance is cured by knowledge,
    Stupidity is cured by a funeral.

    More proof that Natural Selection is failing in the human race.

    I like that.

    Good to know that the anti-gun generation seems to be failing...i have my doubts at times, but this gives me hope yet again.

    I don't get it... a bystander was going to call the police over a kid riding a pony machine in front of a grocery store? Isn't that what those are there for? :confused:

    No, busybody was going to call the police over our pal smoking, and the kid playing guns with his thumb and forefinger.

    She was going to call the police because someone was raising a child in a way which she did not approve.

    I don't know where these busybodies are coming from.

    That would be just as outlandish as any other possible reason...

    That person being on/off drugs is probably a real possibility... was "busybody" very old/infirm looking?

    Yep.
    The kid was wielding NOT one but TWO of them mighty dangerous "point your finger" guns!
    I mean them things ain't even got a gun locks! Somebody coulda' got kilt! :D

    Dr. said it was really too bad her son didn't have on his Cowboy hat, twin six-shooters his cowboy lever action rifle slung...as he does down home.

    Oh, them guns have Texas Ranger emblems, as does the long gun, and he has a badge too! Don't you be messing up in Texas -ya hear!

    I mean Michael Moore would be doing a Bowling for Harvest Foods Movie next month. :eek: :uhoh: ;) :neener:

    I mean a 3 pony carasouel. One pony that has seats you strap a kid into. Talk about safe! Even the Good Doctor was walking [ "riding mom, your riding"] with the kid, and I was near as well.

    I spent Fifty cents on the kid getting to ride- because I wanted to.
    I mean where else can fifty cents provide this much entertainment?

    'Sides, not everyday I get to meet up with a Texas Ranger in these here parts....;)


    Edit:

    Busybody - late thirties/early forties.
    I am 50.
    Dr. has strong German features, attractive, sharp, personable. Does not look her age, no I won't say.
    But yeah...I could see why it may have appeared I 'robbed the cradle'.

    OMG...I was...I was Profiled!! :D

    El T! We got us a case or what?? LOL!!

    I would have let her use my cell phone to call the cops.

    Maybe they could see that she was irrantional and nearly unhinged, she could be a threat to society don't ya know. Lock her up for the good of all. :D

    Sad part is, She ran home and called everyone she knows to tell them how she was ganged up on by a bunch of gun nuts and had to run away because she feared for her life.:rolleyes:

    It must absolutely suck to not remember your own childhood or what innocence or imagination is.
    How do you go through life intentionally trying to quash all three!:cuss:

    Thanks Steve.

    Lemme get this straight: busybody accused you of consorting with communists?:what:

    Did she think that letting little boys play with guns is a commie thing? Or did the woman look like a commie? (Anyone know what a commie looks like, anyway?)

    Wow! Sometimes people's rudeness and stupidity never ceases to amaze me.:what:
    I commend you and the cowboy's mom for being able to maintain composure. :cool: I would probably go off on someone trying to tell me how to be a mother. If it were about the mom letting her child run wild or if the kid was doing something harmful, then I could understand it. But not wanting to let a little boy play cowboy is totally asinine.:banghead: That woman needs a hobby! (perhaps target shooting)?:evil:

    sm...

    Very interesting post and great replies. May I have your permission to copy your post to another board which I frequent? I think they would be interested in what went on.

    Thanks.

    So, like ... where did Ms. Busybody get "communist" from? Is she trying to claim that the Lone Ranger and Roy Rogers were COMMIES? :eek:

    FPrice,
    Yes sir, you have my persmission.

    Trapper,
    No mention of the 28 ga. I think this "Texas Ranger" would look best with a Model 97.
    When he gets time from rounding up BGs, has time to respect quail, yeah then the 28 ga might be a good suggetion. He has other priorties at the moment you see. ;)

    Seems he likes the Lone Ranger [ and other similar] Tapes Daddy used him for an excuse to get.
    "Boy wants these tapes" - his daddy
    <laugh> " Really? Hmm- at 4 wks old he seems to have other interests..." the mom.

    Don't take this wrong, just the only way I know to describe the Dr. I am not being disrespectful.

    She is very attractive, strong features, not petite, though small in stature. Has that strong bone structure, muscular , not "weight lifter" though. Dark hair, hazel eyes, Southern drawl...unique... very pleasant voice. Exudes confidence.

    She is as we say in the south - damn fine healthy specimen of a Southern gal.
    Kick butt and take names if push come to shove. Get it?

    Her son, has her features. Real handsome, going to swoon the ladies...well he already does so says the Dr. His dad says he going to piss off the other guys from all the attention he will get.

    Young man, has manners, even has a firm handshake!

    Rangers just have a certain way about them - ya know? :p

    I have no idea where the 'communist' came from. I mean this Dr. does appear to be from another country, but I just figured "European". There is an instructor at College that was born in Germany, has similar features. She too was an Air Force Brat.

    Dr. was dressed in gray casual pants, blue oxford shirt, blue blazer. Typical 'doctoring' attire.
    Kid; jeans, sweatshirt, tennis shoes. It was cool here today. So he had a gray zip open sweatshirt with hood.

    Their car, a Taurus. Just like Larry and Sandy have...hell I know Larry and Sandy ain't communist. :p
    Gotta wonder if the Taurus comes in another color though...all I see are these Tauruses in this color. Keep thinking Larry and Sandy come to visit.

    <tacky mode on>

    More I thought about BusyBody, probably raised in a household where the local gumbmint, schools , and such 'indoctrinated' her about certain ideals. Probably over at DU talking trash about a heathen mom, raised wrong kid and some tall lanky guy doing a James Dean lean and smoking a gawdawful cigarette polluting the air, killing trees and bunny wabbits. Made her so upset she missed Oprah, Dr Phil and forget to send a check to PETA.

    </tacky>
