Thanks for sharing and reminding us of God's wonders.  Sometimes we get so wrapped up in what is wrong with the world, we forget to celebrate what is good.

Right outside our front door in a nest built in a fake plant    Baby sparrow getting ready for his first flight:



Edited to add:  The coolest thing happened when he first took off from the nest.  He landed on the ground and could only get up in the air for a couple seconds.  So he kept trying but was headed out towards the busy street out in front of our house.  WELL, all of a sudden about 8 adult sparrows dropped down to the ground and "herded" him away from the street into some planters and trees.  IT WAS SO COOL!

I stand with the girl, Natalee Holloway.

"I can look back over the past 10 years and there were no steps wasted, and there are no regrets,'' she said. "I did all I knew to do and I think that gives me greater peace now." "I've lived every parent's worst nightmare and I'm the parent that nobody wants to be," she said.

That is so cool.    But I have to confess when I first looked at the picture I thought " Why is Klass posting a picture of a bunch of hoses and wires."  Then I read her post and looked again at the picture sure enough there was the sparrow. I guess I need to wake up fully before I turn on the computer.

St. Joseph statue sounds good, too. 

The Nuns would have quite a throwing arm, as well 

We never had any criminals from our class.  Sometimes, I wonder if a little fear,
instilled in children is a good thing, no beating up, just a little fear.

You would think anyone would be arrested with messing around with a false report.

My neighbors history is in the records. Your neighbor's history is in the records, too.

A baby monitor may be useful.  I remember on the news, a woman heard a intruder from a baby monitor.  When I see one on a tag sale, I think I will spring for one, myself. 

I guess you could put a Baby monitor outside?  If you want to know what is going on.
You seem to be pretty set with your security system.

Do you have a blessed candle in your house?

I say a three minute prayer with  a quick candle lighting, and it  gives such peace of mind.
I will keep you and your neighbor in mind, when I light the candle Smile

I have stopped getting angry about my neighbor because it was showing on my face.
She is Beastly , and I was begin looking Beastly  So I went with the prayer and candle thing.

I think I know a few of those nuns you mentioned.    I went to your regular run of the mill public school but in the 70's you were still afraid of getting paddled by your teacher or going to the principal's office. It's wild because by the time I was in highschool in the 80's, no fear of any teacher/principal/superintendent. What a change just in that time span. By the time my kids started kindergarten, it was shocking how kids behaved and now... you just wonder how much worse it's going to get. We homeschooled our kids... and it worked out good....where my kids would get sent to the daddy/principal's office. They didn't turn out perfect but they respect others and keep their noses clean.

The last time an officer came out he said we should call the local drug unit and tell them what we've been seeing. We left a message at the number he gave us over a week ago and got a call to come in and talk with someone. So wednesday we talked with a detective. Nice guy too. He listened to everything we told him, wrote down names, and seemed really interested in one name in particular for some reason. He told us if they give us any further trouble to call police. We told him we've already called so many times and that we've been referred to magistrate court about the problem. He just shook his head and said, "Call the police on them again if they do anything else. That's what we're here for." He said if an officer complains to us about it, (like one of them did), he said to call their supervisor about it. I'm going to wait and see what legal aid says though, just to be on the safe side. It was a good meeting with the detective. He asked a lot of questions and listened to everything we shared with him. We asked just out of curiosity what will they do and he of course wouldn't go into it much but said it can be anything from stopping on the street to check for license/insurance to knocking on the door and asking if they're selling. He made a face while he said that so... we didn't pry any further. A face like "I can't really share that much with you, you know?"

The street patrols we had requested stopped a week ago but yesterday we saw a patrol car going by slowly. We didn't request they extend it. They're on the drug unit radar.

I know a gal that simply got her facts wrong about a situation and got arrested for lying to police in our area several years ago. Too bad they don't take it seriously like that with your forked tongue neighbor.

I am wondering if a baby monitor may be able to pick up more sound though. I think I'll check out the next yard sale or thrift store I'm near and see if I can pick one up. Maybe they can pick up sound better than our cams. Thanks for the idea.

I have one candle from my husband's confirmation last year... does that count as a blessed candle?

I have an Infant of Prague and Saint Joseph statues on the way to our mailbox.

Thank you for praying, Seahorse. I appreciate that very much. Our priest situation is still on hold. One is on vacation until the end of next week and the other has his schedule full until then also. We picked a busy time to finally decide on that one. We should have requested the blessing as soon as the trouble started. It's been quiet around here for the past few days though and that's a miracle!

What a good story! From a bird lover, thank you for sharing that with us! Those baby birds can make one worry! We have some baby cardinals we're watching outside our place every day lately. Poor daddy cardinal has his wings full with four babies that are learning to fly. I said something about how that poor cardinal has his hands full and my hubby said "Can you imagine having to take care of 4 toddlers that can fly???" I put out some special suet just for that bird.

Sorry that you seem to have the neighbors from Hades.  I can't imagine how you must feel -- violated is the word that comes to mind.  I hope the new statues will help and will add you to my prayer list.   an angelic monkey

WOOOO HOOOOO!!!!   

I have a computer!!!!   

A storm knocked mine out and I've been without since late Thursday! 

Actually, this one is my son's, but he gave it to me until mine is ready. It's a long story, but the bottom line is that I HAVE A PUTER AGAIN!!!   

Wow, have things changed! I had no idea that computers no longer have to have a tower! I remember walking into Circuit City a few years ago and thinking, "The world has changed!" Every TV was a flat screen! LOL! Actually, I still have a couple TV's that aren't, but this was one of those days that taught me how fast things change!

Hi Monkeys!! I've missed you!!
