A Tall Tale
The chime from the clock woke me up. I thought I had turned that off for the night and was reluctant to get out of my warm comfortable bed but if I was to get any sleep I had to make the effort. So rolling out of bed I staggered to the living room to turn it off.
As my hand reached for tiny door to turn off the chime a light out of my window caught my attention. We lived way off the beaten path and there was not supposed to be lights around outside. Forgetting my task I peered out of the window being careful to keep myself from being seen by anyone outside.
There was a movement by the shop and a tiny light was flashing around. Someone was outside and most likely up to no good. I had a couple of options. Get the gun or loose the dog. I always kept my dog tied up in the kitchen at night to keep her safe from cougars and to keep her from barking and waking us up.
Letting her loose seemed the best idea but I got my gun as a back up, then grabbed a flashlight and brought Spotty to the door and quietly slid outside with her. Our porch light was not on so we didn't attract any attention. I quickly sneaked down the steps and hide behind a bush to see what would happen as Spotty took in the situation.
It didn't take to long. She suddenly noticed the movement and let out a tremendous bark and roared toward the intruder. The intruder jumped and fled down our long driveway with Spotty in hot pursuit. I also followed as fast as I could to see where the would-be robber was going.
Our driveway was close to a quarter of a mile long and Spotty kept the intruder busy as she nipped at his heels as he ran. I was running behind trying to keep up but not get so close in case he was armed.
Our driveway is gated so he must have a car parked there somewhere and sure enough the intruder climbed over the gate and jumped into a parked car just on the other side of it. Spotty danced around the car as he started it and I was desperate to rush up and shine my light on his license. I just managed to see the numbers before he roared off into the night. Trying to memorize what I had seen I called Spotty back to me and we headed back up my long driveway.
Back in the house I called the police and reported what I had seen and the numbers on the license plate. The police told me they would check it out. Before calling I had also checked the shop and found that he had not gotten inside but had left scrape marks around the door knob as he was trying to wedge it open with something.
Later after the excitement had died down and I was laying in bed, I had to count sheep to relax after all that commotion. However just as I started to doze off I heard the clock chime.
