Patrol report

In each job a time must come to say goodbye. That time has arrived for me, but not yet. Not until I get done with the items for you to watch out for and things that could cause you problems. First, let’s contemplate the traffic. With so many of our snowbirds gone for the summer, you would think travel in the subdivision would be safer. I say no. Due to the lower traffic volumes drivers tend to go a little faster. Don’t make that mistake. Watch for cross traffic especially at stop signs. The problem is one I have never been able to solve. Please stop at stop signs! Hey, maybe that’s why they’re called stop signs. For those of you who walk at dark to try and avoid the heat, remember drivers may not expect to see you; so wear light colored clothing and if possible carry or wear a light. Expect the unexpected from traffic.

Remember, you need to keep an eye out for your neighbor and their property. My house boss, also known as my wife, was helping me check some houses that I watch. She remarked how many of the neighbors were watching as we did our job. That was good news to me because that type of action will help prevent crime from happening in our area. It appears I have gotten that message across. Keep up the good work.

Now is the time as my friend Roy Rogers would say, “Happy trails to you” but I must add, “Remember we have nowhere to go and plenty of time to get there.”
