I read a story the other day of an oldish Australian dear that went and hunted down her granddaughters' rapists! After she finally tracked them down, she shot their manlihood off with a shotgun!! Thereafter she went to the cops to give herself up. Apparently they have no idea what to do with her, but the public is insisting on her being released and I think the cops would love to do that, but the law has to take its course.

The lesson here is, don't screw with grannies!!!

I am reminded of an episode several years ago in Krugersdorp. Everyone will realise at the end why it made the newspapers. It is a little off-beat, but I will clad it respectfully.

It was about an elderly lady in that region who fired her garden-help, who swore to get even with her. Rather nervous, she notified the police and took precautions with locks and placing a weapon by her bedside (cannot recall what form it was).

But despite all this she woke up one night a week or so later to find someone on top of her to her horror. It was the "help", saying: "Now I kill you!" She groped for the weapon but could not reach it, reached down the other side of the bed in reaction, and touched the - er - usual one-eared "utensil"  placed there in earlier times. Grabbing it, she swung with all her might, sending the assailant retreating with screams of anguish. You see - the "utensil" was not empty!

The fellow stormed out, the police came with a dog, and asked for a description. "Never mind" the smiling lady said, "your dog should not have too much difficulty in tracking him!"

And thus it was. He was caught a few blocks away, nobody had difficulty in identifying him, only later at the trial the "Honour" had great difficulty to suppress a smile.

And it reached the news media naturally.

Ya. Don't mess with elderly ladies. One way or another.
