Last Night.....Armed Robbery
« on: March 27, 2008, 09:28:17 am »
At about 2am i woke up to feed my 8 week old daughter and i heard a gun shot/crakers.  I was very worried and while i was feeding her i heard lots more..... it sounded like paintball guns going off (A couple of them)

After feeding baby i phoned CMS (our security ppl-which is actually very good and helpfull) and i was told that it was a armed robbery at a service station close to my house.......

I've got to get out of here asap!!!!!!!!! (can't wait)

Hi Dedre, It makes one  :tickedoff: when this happens so close to your home where you are trying to provide a safe haven for your loved ones.

Stay safe!  :flowers:
