Heard that one the radio news this morning, Great Story, I commend her courage, not only to arm herself but to hold the perp while waiting for the troops to arrive. Glad all worked out well!

I know one nice lady, keeps a gun in her bedside table and a hammer right beside her. She said that if some bastard broke in to her place, she'd shoot him, and if he got back up she'd beat his head in with the hammer.
You don't go pissing off grannies, they've seen more shit than most people realize.

I saw that old lady on the news. She fears NOTHING. Way to go. She's not your average citizen by any means.I'm not ruining your life, you are, and I'm just going to write a short story about it.
