    The reason why I am tired today ....

    I live in Fountain Valley ... a nice, mostly quiet town in OC.

    I was fast asleep this morning at about 1:30am when my phone rings. As usual, when your phone rings at 1:30am you assume someone is dead. No one had died, but it's the police department asking me to open my front door!

    I put the dogs out and go downstairs and am informed that there might be someone hiding in my backyard. My backyard backs up to a street so I guess someone running from the police jumped the fence. Several policemen (who were very cute and let's face it ... at 1:30am I was NOT looking cute) went through my house with a police dog and searched my backyard! Flashlights everywhere! About five monutes later they left, not having found anything, but warned me to keep my doors and windows locked.

    It was a little tough to sleep after that!

    Good grief!

    I'm wondering why they took the time to call you. If it were really that urgent or dangerous, shouldn't they have just gone ahead and searched the back yard?

    My guess is the reason they didn't is that there is a big 'Beware of Dog" sign on my gate.

    Thanks for cooperating! You'd be surprised about how many people that don't.

    Re: The reason why I am tired today ....

    My two dogs weigh about 100 pounds each and are very protective of me, so I was VERY happy to let them sleep on the bed last night!

    I wonder if they caught the person they were looking for.

    My husband was out working in the yard the other day when a teenage kid ran through our yard....my husband watched him.....and then, watched two police cars drive through the neighborhood. Turns out they were looking for the kid. Weird. And we live in such a quiet neighborhood! Don't know if they found him.

    Woke up once at 3am to two cops and a K-9 unit in my backyard. They yelled at me to get away from the windos and keep the lights off. Must have been a real baddie.

    Thank you!

    I guess the police know everyone's number ... since ours is not listed!
