I think Addie got the message (I hope). I think it's time to stop dog piling her.

Post #308 from today indicates she hasn't gotten the message at all. She asked, we responded....

Dog piling her? Sorry, but I get your point Taxi, but this subject was brought up by Addie, not anyone else. Sometimes people post more information than they should, something most of us are quite careful about, for reasonable reasons. When you post out details of stupid choices, the post is fair game for discussion. That's just the way it works for a place of discussion like this.

I commented because Addie may not have thought of some possibilities.

Oh just thought of one other thing, does Addie have an internet limit?
If he is doing nothing but movies, it could cause her price to go up.

From personal observation, when people get dog piled on the internet, they get defensive. They often stop listening. They usually won't admit they were mistaken.

I didn't mean that people shouldn't have replied.

Something weird happened last night. I go outside to smoke. I went out a little after midnight and everything was normal. I went out again about half an hour later. It seemed darker than it should with the outside light on. I have a light attached to the outside wall of the house. I looked at it. There was a plastic planter over it like a lampshade. So, someone came into my tiny backyard and did that. I was mostly sitting on the Chesterfield on the opposite side of that wall and never heard anything. I wonder what that was about. Stirling thinks it was a drunk.

Weird indeed. Could the light be bothering a neighbor who did that to block the light?

That's pretty scary Taxy, since it happened within a half hour of when you first went out, and it was the middle of the night. Be careful and alert.

I don't think so. The light faces the street. (It's a condo. The front of the house faces the "plaza".) A friend asked the same thing.

You betcha I'm being careful and alert. I'm wondering if someone was "up to no good" and didn't want light shining on their activity. I'm going to buy some bells and attach them to the gate.
