Re pit bull dog -- I would have called, too. Heck, someone called on my dog when it got loose and the cops found it before we did. And I have a cute little ity bitty dog that wouldn't scare a flea. It's not a barker either. It would go home with anyone and has. One neighbor found him (he's gotten out 3 times -- we've mainly fixed the issue), and kept him all day with their little girls. They loved the dog. Found him when they were walking him in the neighborhood trying to find the owner. The stupid dog looked at me, looked at their three girls and was deciding who he wanted to go to. Heh. Didn't blame him. The girls were gaga over him and had, I imagine, much more energy to play than I do.

He did end up running to me.

It would seem logical to me that they would then be able to police their property like a Target security guard policing the parkin lot.
Would it also be logical to assume this will set precedence for other HOA communities, even ones that are not gated? Is it logical to allow a private security firm to enforce traffic laws and detain drivers on public roadways? This also once again points out your hypocrisy regarding the Travon Martin case. According to your logic, Zimmerman had every right to approach Martin and attempt to detain him.

If you as a citizen see, with your own eyes, someone committing a felony, you can make a citizens arrest and detain the person but you have to call the cops immediately so they can do the rest. The Trevon Martin issue arose because Zimmerman did not see Martin committing a felony and was stalking him. What happened after that is still up in the air. Zimmerman had no more authority than you or Tonka. The IL security guy had the authority to do security things, like stop speeders. If saw a break in he has teh same authority as you and me and Tonka. He could deatin the guy and call teh cops.

If you don't want to dull her senses, try plying her with your scintillating personality.

(To coin a phrase) Drink sir, is a great provoker of three things....nose painting, sleep and urine. Lechery, sir, it provokes, and unprovokes; it provokes the desire but takes away the performance.

Bottom line- 2, maybe 3 glasses for her assuming her BMI and liver function are normal.

Post picture of painted noses, please.

1. Not Chicago
2. A cruise, try the Mediterranean
3. Cabo San Luca
4. Not New Orleans, especially not next week
5. Paradise Island, Atlantis resort
6. Do the still have Club Med? I went to Martinique for my divorce vacation at a Club Med, and had a very good time, but that was in 1978 and I am very much aware things have changed.
7. Maybe NYC and do very un-FL things
8. Spain, especially the south coast
