I want to be police chief there -- or at least the dispatcher. There must be some mighty fun conversation at that police station.

I love that place! It is just like living in Mayberry. ;)

Gladys, you are a funny one. (A long-winded, but funny and talented one :)

Why would somebody bother to leave a note saying they'd stolen something? Now we can get all the FBI agents mobilized with hand writing analysis and fingerprint identification!
