I'm a firm beleiver of "Keep your freind's close

but keep your enemies closer". That being said there was an instance I was involved in about 20 years ago. My wife and I engaged in a rather spirited disagreement which necessitated a call to the local constabulary. I had recently purchased a new SUV which had a turbo diesel engine in it. I was fully aware of what would occur when the officer's arrived and was out side with the hood up on the vehicle trying to figure out how to disable it when they came up to me. After speaking with my wife I was told to get in the cruiser and received a ride to the closest watering hole with instructions not to go home that evening. A few weeks later while downing a few I was seated next to one of the officers who gave me the ride. He stated " Bob, you don't know how glad we were that you were outside when we pulled up". I asked him what he meant and he responded "We know what kind of firepower you have in the house". When I questioned him how he knew he told me it was through local fire arm dealers records. Should have seen the look on his face when I said " Oh...that's all you know of"?

There are no politicians or bankers in foxholes.
