That must be a painful "rash". Well, having your stolen is always painful,... I guess.

Now that would be brutal to end up in jail and when the inmates asked what you were in for you gotta say, "I was caught with my hands on another mans nuts.!"...

The day after they had a big news story about pecan thieves encouraging anyone who saw someone stealing pecans to call the police. I saw some thieves in a field by my house so I called 911 and told them about. I was told that the 911 operates were told by the police chief not to respond to pecan thefts unless its called in by the pecan field owner.
O well let them steal their nuts than.

It's not only pecans being stolen. Someone went in my fifty five acres of pines and stole the pine needles between the last time I checked the place in August and last week. The gate was still up and the fence wasn't cut. It's on a dead end road with no houses so somebody somehow worked their azzes off raking that place and made a clean getaway. No one on the main road saw anything unusual. Pecans and pine needles,what's next?
