My human has only one twos, one twos (twos) legs, doesn't think like us and he has been called weirds. I like that in a familys man. He is stubborns like me. He likes his beer dark. He could be called an Eclectic Peeps. Most of all, he loves me and I like that. DeltaBunny will journal our lives togethers in the small Delta town of Rio Vista, California.

NEW CAR-JACK SCHEME/KEEP YOUR HUMANS SAFE


My typist just received this over the wonder wire. Thought it might help some one, but if we are guardin' the movin' box would it happen? Anyway, have your humans check all the windows, and of course the round rubber things, before they take off. Be safe out there.

Well it is better if we always provide the escort service. But, my mom doesn't ever believe anything anymore, check out what she found:

I am thinking of a scheme where I demand extra cookies....just have a few more details to work out. I'll let you know what I come up with.

Cooool Splash,

I checked out your reference and it sounds right. Thanks. But you never know what those bad humans may resort to. I think the actual MO may be false but such stories, true or not, should serve to keep our humans on the alert for any type of weird behavior they may observe nearby. We need to keep them on their toes. I don't want to end up in some stranger's hideout.

The EXPERTS (Whatever those are.) suggest, whenever possible, humans should park where they do not have to back up. That is when most parkin' lot accidents occur. I wonder if that is in the Snopes file? I may look it up tomorrow.

Thanks for keepin' me on my toes.

Woof!

Important Points to Know About Carjacking (the Bad News)
Carjacking is a felony offense. In the eyes of the law, it is a violent crime against the person. That makes it not only a felony, but a higher class one. While grand theft auto also is a felony since it is not violent, the sentencing is less severe(1). A carjacker is risking a far more severe penalty if he is caught than a regular car thief. A person who is stupid, lazy, violent and selfish enough to think that this is an acceptable risk is not going to suddenly start making smart decisions when he has a gun in your face.

You are dealing with a stupid, violent person with a track record of violence. And now is not the time to be a hero.Br safe ..Thanks for the reading ..

Hi there ,

thanks for visiting my blog. truly appreciate it:P

i despise carjacking. thats why we have to be very careful at nite, esp when driving alone or when we park our cars in the basement carpark. I stay in an apartment n sometimes i do feel the eerie-ness when coming out from my car. I would fleed as fast as possible to the lift upon stepping out from my car. hehehe.

Have a good saturday! yay!

There are so many crazy humans and some that are very desperate.

Here in Frostbite Falls, Moose and Squirrel say: Geewhillikers, so that's what I say too!
