Thanksgiving Vacation: Day 1 - True Crime

Happy Monday... 
The House of Thorns is on Thanksgiving Vacation!!!
In the spirit of staycation, we ventured out to experience a little something new in our neighborhood.  Today it was a  new coffee shop {we are weekend Peete's devotees}and it was fab.  It's a cute little place called Java Love.  And now I digress... I was going to post a quick little link to the shop but when I typed in "java love lake oswego" I found something FAR more hilarious and so much more telling about the city that we call home.  The following is ALL real, and nothing - no nothing - has been added by moi.  Must share: 

Taken from the LO Police Blotter: July 28, 2011 

9:18 a.m. A big yellow dog ran into Java Love coffee house.

5:28 p.m. Two “weed” smokers were jumping off the dolphin statues at Oswego Point Drive.

6:31 p.m. Two nuts were bothering people in Millennium Plaza Park by jumping on tables. A park ranger put a stop to this nonsense.

6:49 p.m. A silver BMW was besmirched by egg throwers on Fifth Street.

7:33 p.m. A bush on Tanglewood Drive was the scene of a drug deal between a male and female.

9:01 p.m. Three juveniles were caught red-handed on the roof of Rivergrove Elementary School.

10:09 p.m. A woman saw mysterious eyes peering out at her from a bush on Hallinan Circle.

10:05 p.m. A birthday party for a 5-year-old grew so loud that neighbors complained. The parents promised to quiet things down and send the children to bed soon.

10:58 p.m. A 16- to 18-year-old male ordered a meal at a restaurant, then dashed away without paying for it.

12:38 a.m. Two subjects rang a doorbell on Douglas Way, ran 

8:02 a.m. A man on Uplands Drive went out to his pool and found feces floating and damage to his lawn chairs and barbecue.

11:04 a.m. Some mischief-makers on Pioneer Court unplugged lights, inverted outdoor light covers and tossed over planters. The damage was only $100 but chagrin ran high.

11:23 a.m. A daughter did not want to go to church with her father.

11:50 a.m. A disgusting concoction of ingredients was spread over two cars on Pfeifer Drive — a mixture of ketchup, relish, chocolate syrup and powdered sugar.

True Story.  Each of these incidents were cause for alarm and required police attention for the residents of our sweet little town.  I am cracking up.  Happy Holidays from those of us in crime ridden Lake Oswego.
