This Is The Last Straw...!


Looks like Granny's sweeping up!

Maybe the old ways of doing things, like when Granny would chase the kids out of the house with a broom, wash out their mouth with soap, paddle them with a switch, and such as that should be revisited!

Of course, this Granny has more balls than a lot of the so-called "bad guys" where she lived. I don't know about you, but I want this lady on my team with the storm comes!

Pa. woman chases away armed robbers with broom

– Fri Sep 17, 3:27 pm ET

CHESTER, Pa. – Police said two armed men broke into a home, tied up one man and robbed another, then were chased away by the woman of the house who was armed only with a broom. Police Capt. Stephen Fox said the men broke a window to get inside the home of a family that runs a city convenience store.

He said a 49-year-old male resident went downstairs to investigate and was tied up, then his 80-year-old father came downstairs and was robbed of $50 at gunpoint.

Fox said the robbers started to go upstairs and were confronted by the 43-year-old woman of the house, who chased them out with a broom.

The robbers remain at large. The 49-year-old man broke an ankle trying to escape.

I can't help but wonder if this Lady can do the same with some of the politicians in office! If so, maybe she should rub for mayor or chief of police!

I think that some fresh coffee in the kitchen is called for, don't you?

Good Morning My Special One
Love a good story first thing in the morning with that first fresh brewed cup. She deserved a new broom a bigger one and with a heavy handle. Never make us that angry :)
I can bring a nice freshly ground pot to the table this morning.

Never underestimate to power or determination of an angry woman. Is her name, by any chance, Fearless Philomena?

Hey WWRWH...
Takes a braver man than me to mess with a woman armed with a broom and a bad temper!

More power to her...glad she didn't get hurt!

Thanks for the visit today!


Hey China...
I'll chip in on a bigger broom as well! Even hold the dust pan for her!

Thanks for the visit, buddy!


Hey JoJo...
I'm sure that she will probably be given a new one by some body!

Fresh ground coffee sounds good to me!

Thanks, sweetie, for coming by!


Hey Momlady...
Everyone knows (or should know) that a woman scorned (or made angry) is a force to be reckoned with!

I certainly won't mess with them!

Thanks, lady, for the visit!

This brought back some memories of mine. When my brothers were too big to handle...my mom who was 5ft tall used the broom on my brothers. Last time I saw her do that is when they were men and she chased them out of her house, hitting them with a broom and told them to get back to their own houses and fight each other there. We still laugh at that one!

Hey Diane-Sage...
There seems to be a healthy respect for any lady with a broom ! Especially if said broom is going to be used as a weapon!

These old memories are a lot of fun, aren't they?

Hey, thanks for coming by today!
