Thinkin it's sign making time for your entrance to your place...

PRIVATE PROPERTY, NO TRESPASSING

TRESPASSERS WILL BE SHOT, SURVIVORS WILL BE SHOT AGAIN

THINK I'M KIDDING? TRY ME!!!

My very good friend/neighbor had a lane that led back to a lake that many people fished, and people would stop at the house to ask permission and give them their plate numbers so they knew who was there that was supposed to be, and who wasn't.

So he put up signs that said, "CHECK IN AT THE HOUSE, OR YOU'LL WISH YOU DID"!

Well one afternoon he noticed a fancy truck and fishing boat attached heading down his lane to the lake. So he goes out to the shed and fires up the IH 856 and liquid manure spreader and commenced to filling it... Heads down the lane and pulls up alongside this guys rig (side unload spreader) an unloads thousand gallons of liquid manure.

And waits for the guy to come off the lake to ask him if he saw the sign. Guy says, "yeah I saw it", Elton said, "betcha wish you'd checked in at the house".

Sorry, it's not stealing, but the power of the sign sometimes works. And by the way, that was the last time someone didn't check in at the house. Word spread fast. :thumbs:

Last fall We had numerous things disappearing. We now make sure every window, door, and vehicle is locked. The lock on the barn got messed with a few times, so that was screwed shut. Then the local crackhead got stuck behind bars and it ended until he got out.

My wife has been afraid of people messing around at the house. She called today and scheduled Comcast to install security. 4 cameras and all the sensors and alarms.

Only added 5 dollars a month to our bill

That's a decent price for a month.

This is her story. I'm still in Illinois and have yet to see the paper work....

If you are interested I'll fill in the details when I can see it.

She also upgraded us to the new x1. 4 new boxes for the bedrooms and other stuff..

She said it was some kind of bundle and our bill was 5 dollars more a month.

I actually am thinking of setting up game cameras and putting fake security stickers on the doors.

Thank God we live in a good area. That being said I have many game cameras set up around for my critters and anybody sneaking around. The neighborhood Bear seems to have people watching their back in the dark so don't think any body gonna come around! LOL
