So back long ago in 1993/4 as we lived in a lovely small two bedroom rental. We had lots of odd things happen around our suburbs . Maybe it was just like that back then. here is my story to tell......
After putting my son down for his nap and making some lunch i turned on the telly to see some news .
**breaking story news** was the heading ~ An armed man young who had just robbed a store and another shop at gunpoint, was on the run and hiding right in our lovely neighbourhood.
One of those well he'd never come to small flats so ... and i shrugged it off. watched the rest of the news and ate lunch. Then went to get my washing so i could hang it out while my son slept for a bit.
never in my head did i think anything would happen but it did. As i opened the back door to the laundry i saw a man with his back pack trying to hide behind our lemon tree!
Me: Excuse me who are you and why are you in my back yard!?
I suddenly saw the clothes he had on (the same ones i had just saw on the breaking news flash!!
Surprisingly i was calm as well.
he said he had hurt his leg and needed a rest so jumped over my fence for a bit etc...
(why my bloody fence i thought you had about 6 other fences to jump over and you chose mine)
So i just closed the door and locked it. I heard a helicopter hovering over our street back and fourth.
Then my doorbell rand. Was the police doing a search for this young man
I said Yes he's hiding in my bloody backyard!
he was caught and taken away. That night we watched the news and saw our place with hovering helicopters and a swarm of police cars. Supposedly the guy was armed and dangerous.
