I hear that lloyd. I find myself feeling envious of your peaceful area.
We bought a house on the Pa side of the Delaware River, close to major roads so my wife could have an easier commute into Jersey where her job was, sort of a compromise. We are pretty secure here, excellent police force, lightning response times, no complaints from me.
Still the fact remains "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away"...even the best cant always be there in time, which I believe we have here.
All I can say is remember your Boy Scout motto..."BE PREPARED"... but pray you never have no choice but to pull the trigger....
Gotta run,lloyd, always a pleasure.
