Scary Things #7
I've thought of these at odd times, so they really aren't in the correct order.
Besides being scary, this is funny too.
This one was when we lived in Oxnard and we had five kids. Hubby was out of the Navy by this time, I think.
He wasn't one to wear p.j.s or anything else to bed. (Important to the story.)
Sometime in the night, Lisa, who was a teenager, came into our room and said, "Mom, Dad, there's someone on the roof! (Sure enough, we could hear someone walking around up there.)
Hubby jumped out of bed and ran through the house and into the screened porch and grabbed an ax on his way--this is what he told us afterwards.
He'd left a ladder on the patio propped against the outside wall and used it to climb on the roof. Yes, there was a guy up there. Hubby chased him waving the ax and shouting. (We could hear this.)
The intruder ran away and leaped off the roof and dashed down the street.
Lisa and I couldn't help laughing at what a sight that must've been.
No, the man was never caught, I don't think we bothered to call the police--and it's a good thing no one else did while my nude husband ran across the roof brandishing an ax.
