Funny story, load your pipes, fill your glasses and loosen your belts.......

So. A person unknown to me approached my fence line today as I was checking for mushrooms. He had a young man with him that I had seen on occasion riding quads and various dirt bikes with wild abandon around the game trails of the forest.

The young man looked a bit green around the gills, swaying slightly as he stood there glaring at me, a wispy bit of grass in a nonexistent breeze.......

The man introduced himself as the young man's uncle. Apparently, the sickly boy had been caught smoking. He claimed that I had given him the tobacco hands for doing 'yard work' for me. I then had apparently filled his dirt bike with water rather than gas. This regrettably has ruined the boy's mode of transportation, and the uncle wanted to hold me liable for damages and being a bad influence on his innocent charge.

"What are you going to do about this?", he asked.

I barely heard him through my laughter. "I suppose nothing now," I replied through tears. "Would you like to see the camera footage of him breaking into my barn and not only stealing my tobacco, but also the distilled water I keep in the old 'gas' can? (The can is in fact blue, but I could understand in the dark colours could get confused...)

I then countered his offer, that providing my can is returned, I receive fifty cents per pound of missing leaf, amounting to around 75-100 bucks, and an understanding that I get his horse the next time it trespasses, I would refrain from further action.........

An agreement was made, and I will hold him to his word.

Oh, I have no camera in the barn. just sayin'.........

I hope he has a word worth holding him to OW.

I hope for your sake he has some honor. Wink

It is my hope as well Ron. I will allow all things a first chance to take advantage of me though, for Nature hates a vacuum, balance is always achieved, and whosoever would sin against mine sins also against Me.

So, I figure, it'll pan out, one way or another.

WOW!

Looks like you got him dead to rights Ozzy. Hold his feet in the fire.

What goes around come around!

Hooray for a quick resolution!
I must admit, though, in a detached way I'm a bit disappointed. When I learned via a global datacloud accessed through an advanced pocket computer (which we simply call a "phone") that a man in Missouri had tobacco leaves stolen by another man on horseback, I was enjoying the postmodern juxtaposition. I had pictured a dark figure in a long duster with a thick black mustache.
How old was this kid? Hopefully this will be the learning experience he needs.

I'm guessing the kid is about late teens/early 20's.....

Didn't see the point in going all Josey Wales on them...........

"Josey Wales: Now remember, when things look bad and it looks like you're not gonna make it, then you gotta get mean. I mean plumb, mad-dog mean. 'Cause if you lose your head and you give up then you neither live nor win. That's just the way it is."

Nicely played.

I gotta admit I was secretly hoping that your tobacco was stolen by a talking horse rather than a degenerate teenager.

Seems a little old to be "caught" smoking by his uncle. Either way, you made a good call. Hopefully he'll learn something now that he's seen how a True Mam works things out.

That's funny OW. I think you played that wonderfully. I believe one would call that karma?
Have to say I'm a little disappointed to learn it wasn't a tobacco smoking horse though.

Glad to hear your sad story had a happy ending Oz, though it sounds like I'm not the only one who's disappointed Mr Ed wasn't the culprit. Had me giggling to myself that story. Don't you just love it when karma runs over someone's dogma like that.

Cheers

Sorry to disappoint all of you hoping a horse would commit an act of human criminality, however, I have not met an animal capable of the despicable acts I have witnessed from 'civilized man'....

I will speak to the horse later about his role, and suggest he be less than cooperative with clandestine activities in my realm. Perhaps a bit of cedar bark and sweet feed will help it to understand my thinking.........

Sometimes "just deserts" happens, that was funny!

We have video surveillance in most of our restaurants and sometimes it pays off. At one of our local stores, in a rather rough part of town, I had mother come in and accuse my managers of mistreating her son his friends the night before. My GM had already sent me the footage of his cursing out the manager and employees, then when they had their backs turned, dumping his food order on the floor, twice. I told the mom I was glad to see her, showed her the video on my laptop and invited her son and friends not to return. Just deserts!

Toy the adult came to my fence and called me out........

He wants me to pay for damages to his nephew's dirt bike from the water he tried to run through it, he says.......

I could feel my left eyebrow crawl up into my hairline. A smirk on my face.

"Sure,'" I said, "Got my money?"

"No," he replied, "You owe us over three hundred for damages to his bike!"

"Well," I said, "I don't pay for damages to a thief's bad choices, especially when they steal from me."

He said, as he moved his hand to his side arm, "There must be some kind of mistake."

I loved this part. Straight out of John Wayne. I dropped Chester off my shoulder and said, "You made it..."

He left, backwards until he got to the trail. Got on his pony and rode off. I sat down, loaded a pipe with Vintage Syrian, and thought a while. Seems like I might not get what I had hoped from our initial meeting.

Sigh.......

I have little use for this kind of activity. I came out here to get free of testosterone posturing, chest thumping, crime, human stupidity. It just goes to show, no matter where you go, you've never left.......

I hadn't pointed a gun at anyone in a long time. It seems like the last refuge of the incompetent. I just couldn't come up with anything else to diffuse the situation.... I'll have to meditate on this a while.

I take back what I said about learning experiences. These two are lost causes. Time to let the sheriff know what's going on.

Your right OW, they follow us. I reckon they feel the need to be punished cause I can't think of one good reason why any of them would want to do either of us wrong. Of course there's  that other motive............
there just plain fricken STUPID!!!

Aw geez Ozzy, so it's come to this?

Watch your back mate. The final chapter is yet to be revealed. And the clown may have another trick up his sleeve.

Good on you for defending your turf. And what's right. Just keep a sharp eye out and sleep with one eye open. Hope it doesn't come to that, but you'll know what to do, come to that.


Cheers,

RR

Thanks for the offer Rob, but I'm not into spectator sports. Consider this a learning experience for all concerned........
