The New Security System

There have been more robberies in the area.  One business was broken into twice in one week.  Another business had their air conditioning unit stolen.  Then Friday, November 19, 2010, a bomb threat was called in to the post office.  Every law enforcement official converged at the post office, while the robbers robbed a local bank three blocks away by the interstate and got away scot free.  Pretty slick.  It’s hard to have faith in law enforcement in this county. 

In the meantime, I have installed a security system on the roof of the RV.

Jackie: "Seven o'clock and all's well!"


Jackie: "What's that you say? My shift is over already? Why, the time just flew by!"


"This is the best job ever!"


"Why, no, I DON'T know how those new rips got into the awning."


Man's work is from sun to sun. Woman's work is never done.


Jackie: "If this gig doesn't work out, I'm joining the circus."


Jackie: "I can hear the applause now. Ladies & gentlemen, children of all ages, I present to you... the fabulous... JACKIE the MAGNIFICIENT, who has just returned from an engagement with the Royal Swamped! Plantation and Awning Repair Service!"


No applause, please, just throw money.

    Thank you for sharing these great pictures of Jackie! She certainly does look a lot happier – and more gainfully employed – than she ever was here at Maranatha Farm. When Jackie was found as a tiny kitten who had been tortured and left to die in the bottom of a Savannah city park trash can, we had no idea she would grow up to become the great protector of Swamped Plantation. Frankly, I doubt she has much tolerance for bad guys. You are probably pretty safe while she is on patrol up there on the canopy. Speaking of which, it looks as if we may need to rustle up a new canopy for her! Thank you for all you do to help the animals of every kind, every day. God bless you.

    Just a passing thought. Have you ever given any thought to having ownership of a mountain lion? The Swamped Plantation would become the safest place on earth, as long as you had a tank to get in and out of the yard.

      But there are no mountains here, and she would be lonely. On the other hand, I hear that donkeys are wonderful watchdogs, which can be a problem for some neighborhoods when the donkey decides to announce the coming and going of everyone and everything.
