    Strange but True? (Not sure really if it is, but it's still a scream!)

    1) Hey Fred, I found the trailer!



    Last summer, down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert an hour east of Bakersfield, CA, some folks new to boating, were having a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 foot boat going. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuver, no matter how much power they applied. After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina, thinking someone there may be able to tell them what was wrong. A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working condition. The engine ran fine, the out-drive went up and down, and the propeller was the correct size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath. He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard.
    NOW REMEMBER...THIS IS TRUE.
    Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer!

    2) THE GETAWAY!



    A man walked into a Topeka , Kansas Kwik Stop and asked for all the money in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police showed up and grabbed him.

    3) WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM OUR FRIENDS.

    Police in Oakland , CA , spent two hours attempting to subdue a gunman who had barricaded himself inside his home. After firing ten tear gas canisters, officers discovered that the man was standing beside them in the police line, shouting, 'Please come out and give yourself up.'


    Now, let's hear your strange but reputed to be true stories.......

    I heard something about a house being broken into and while the police were investigating they found evidence near the window he escaped from. On the ground in the tall grass was his glass eye, with the guy's name on it.

    Years ago, my Aunt used to raise Afghan Hounds. There was a story going around of a couple who had two Afghans, and their house was broken into, while they were away. These two dogs stayed out of the way, and watched, while the two thieves went through the house, and gathered up all the stuff they wanted to steal. When the tried to leave, the dogs attacked.

    The couple came home to find the thieves laying on the floor on their backs, scared ****less, with a dog on each of their chests, staring them in the face. I understand that the dogs held them there, until the police arrived.
