"I Just Got Out of the Back of a Cop Car" or WILW

First things first – thank you so much for being understanding of my attitude yesterday! I felt better as the words of comfort and encouragement came through the blog as the day progressed yesterday. I am happy to report that, although very tired, I am MUCH happier today =) YAY!

This is what happened to J yesterday.
Yes, this is real – as in he is really in the back of a cop car.

He likes to park in random places on grass, the side of the road, random parking lots so that he can fish for a big bass. He just drives around until he finds one he think will have good sized fish in it.
Yesterday, he stops at a pond, parks behind an unmarked building, doesn’t see any ‘no trespassing signs’ and he and his friend proceed to walk around a large pond trying to snag a big fish.
About an hour or so later, they are walking around and a cop car comes rushing at them. The cop parks the car and jumps out with his hand on his holster!
He says J’s full name and asks to see his weapon. J tells him he isn’t carrying and is willing to be searched by the cop. The cop says he knows everything about J and that his truck had already been searched. He had made calls to verify that his name wasn’t an alias and that the vehicle hadn’t been reported missing.
The cop asks if J knew where he parked. J says “in the grass, is there a problem?”

Apparently he managed to find the only unmarked homeland security (ICE) building in the area and parked RIGHT. BEHIND. IT. The cop told him that the building was on lockdown while they tried to figure out whose truck was parked behind the building. The building houses ‘detainees’ or illegal immigrants and when they try to make a run for it, there is usually a vehicle that is dropped nearby.
Everything about J checked out and (obviously) he didn’t have any warrants or any affiliation with a detainee. Come to find out, they also called his dad and the gun store where a family friend works, because he had the store's business card in his truck.
At the end of it all, the cop gives J a ride in the back of the vehicle to his truck and Andrew takes a picture.
I wasn’t there for it – but I will tell you that when J calls and says “I just got out of the back of a cop car” I kinda wanted to slap him haha – not really but I was freaked to say the least. Thankfully it wasn’t anything serious and he will be able to fish that pond, as long as he doesn’t park near that building again.
So THAT is What I'm Loving Wednesday -- the Husband did NOT get arrested or shot or get a ticket or have his truck towed.

I am just too tired to love too much else today haha =) Happy Wednesday!
