It's a bird, It's a plane, It's a SHOPLIFTER?

Times are tight for everyone you know, and it does bring out the worst in people. And birds.



I had my own little "brush with stickiness" recently and lived to tell the tale.
I saw this video and was envious of the bird's escape plan.
No fair.

Seagulls and Pigeons: rats with wings.

That made for a cute news story, but if that was my store, that bird would have been "swimming with the fishes" after the first bag of Cheetoes.

Things are crazy here. Oregon is 3rd highest unemployment and the town 30 miles from us has something ridiculous ilke 27% unemployment. People are breaking into homes, businesses, cars, shoplifting like crazy... It's not all just to feed the family, but I think times like these make people do crazy things.

On the pluse side, the Mendosa brothers that own the 24 hour taco shop have finally been busted for selling meth out of the drive thru. Yeah, Bend has some REAL characters.

Well, I just say it is time we knew which snack foods were the preferred snack foods of seagulls! Oh, and the fact that the tangy cheetos were the ones lowest to the ground and closest to the door have nothing to do with anything. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.

Annie...sounds like our area, but probably it's just everywhere! Guess whose neighbors were visited again by the police this week....this time I think they were making meth in a junk car...lovely.

Beth- next thing you know they'll be training the birds to deliver their drugs!

Has anyone heard from Nick. He tweeted something last night about if we didn't hear from him in a hour, then he'd been arrested for his youth pastor April Fool's Day prank. I'm gettin worried. Do you think the county jail there takes PayPal?

Marni, now you've got me worried. Then again, maybe his apparent disappearance IS the prank...
