Also don’t mess with “My Lady”. She carries a .38 Spl with the meanest hollow points I could find to load it. (She and I practice all the time —— 200 rds for her last year.)

Every time I read a news story about an intruder being shot in Texas, I check to be sure it wasn’t my 86 year old aunt who shot him.

Thanks, Daffynition! I couldn’t get the video to run for some reason (but it’s working now).

That’ll teach him to wake someone from a nice nap...

No, your .gif worked fine; it was the YouTube vid posted earlier in the thread that gave me problems. This new one reminds me of an incident I saw once in a nursing home cafeteria when one lady’s placemat infringed on her neighbor’s tabletop space.

"hope they worked things out."
