Surfer Matt

Hi again, well it's been an exciting day, got up this morning and went to church, home again and had lunch, did the dishes and then about 3.30p.m. decided to go play catch with the dogs. I was down the side of the house and heard a car pull up and saw a guy get out with some paperwork and walk into my neighbour's driveway, he lives opposite us. I know he has been having legal and money problems and he told me that his accountant was trying to take his house away from him so I thought I would keep an eye on the guy. He knocked on the door and my neighbour came out and I could hear the guy saying he needed to move out, my neighbour said he wasn't moving and it escalated pretty quickly with lots of swearing and yelling, He then grabbed my neighbour by the front of his shirt and punched him, I had come into the front yard by this stage and saw him do it so I yelled at him to stop and that he couldn't go there and assault him. He started back towards the car yelling at me about my neighbour and then threatened that he would be back when he least expected it and the police wouldn't be able to save him. He drove off and I called the police. They came but told my neighbour he needed to go to the police station and make a report. He doesn't have a registered car so we had to take him and I ended up making a statement. I'm concerned this man may retaliate against me as well but I'm sure if I hadn't intervened he would have continued with the assault. It was a quiet day up until then!!
Luckily I had made my card up already so I'm having a proper early night for a change.
I've again used Matt from Kaszazz Stamps, this time he is in surf mode! I used another piece of the orange DSP from SU and a piece of light blue card with a waves stamp from SU Surf's Up set, the sentiment is from the same set, I coloured the image with Marvy Markers and Copics. I rounded the corners of the image piece and then distressed the edges.
I would like to enter this into; Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #13 - One for The Boys

  2. Hi Sandy, you definitely did the right thing....a good Samaritan is hard to come by nowadays and a good neighbour even rarer. I am sure that the man will think twice before coming back now that he knows your neighbourhood is so caring. Thank you for popping by my blog and for leaving me such a lovely comment.
