Well, who would have thought? My grandfather was right all along- Everyone is on Drugs. Growing up, it didn't matter what the crime was- from robbing a bank to running a traffic light- his answer was always the same, "Those kids are on the Dope." And now, I believe him.

Which leads us to last night.

Picture it. We are at home enjoying a quiet evening while cooking my famous Poppy Seed Chicken and Rotel Potatoes and thinking how everything is right with the world. The weather is beautiful, we have Jason Mraz playing softly in the background, and plans of a nice movie later in the evening.

Now enter Nashville Metro S.W.A.T.

Like, outside our house.... In black masks.... With a bull horn..... Running to our neighbors door..... With a battering Ram.

All of the sudden we look out our window and see 3 cop cars, 4 un-marked undercover cars surrounding our neighbors' house yelling, "This is Metro City S.W.A.T., you are surrounded!" AND THEN THEY START BREAKING DOWN THE DOOR!!

Well, like any normal person I run outside, literally barefoot and pregnant, to get in on the action. Nothing this exciting has happened since the infamous Peeper of 2007. So there we are, me and all of my neighbors standing around like it's the county fair- sans funnel cakes and fried twinkies- while they lead our neighbors out in handcuffs. Their crime? Drug dealing. In the 'Burbs!

Score one for Papaw.

You have GOT to be kidding me! I was talking to Lindsay when she was on her way over. Did she freak since Liam was there?

PS-Chuck's Nana used to say the same thing-"Honey, they are on the dope." Chuck does a great impression.

If we learned 1 thing in Savannah it was not to turn a blind eye. This post reminds me of piling up in the van to "go see what was on fire" in town.

Some things never change....

Yes, Lindsay was there too... we were outside on the corner watching... with Liam in the stroller! She called me the next day to tell me he kept asking about "Bubby" (Buddy) and said, "Good thing he didn't memorize 'Drug Bust'" Hahahaha!!!
