'Guns' and Roses
We are now locked and loaded. Well not actually, but we do now have an alarm system installed. I have to get used to having the alarm beep everytime I open either the front or back door and please-oh-please let us remember to turn the alarm off before letting Rambo out back at 3:30 in the morning!!
Not all windows are alarmed, just the ones that can not be seen from the street. But there is a motion detector in the house if someone should get in without a neighbor or passerby seeing them.
The installer was very nice and he even brought his own vacuum cleaner with him for getting up the wood dust left on the floor from the holes he had to drill.
Now I just need the ummph to get some things put back in their proper places, things that had to be moved to allow him access to the attic, my closet where the control box is and in front of our bedroom windows.
Amanda is asking for rose bushes to be planted under her front bedroom window. She figures several thorny bushes should be a good deterent and that gives me the perfect excuse for buying those rose bushes I found online back in February....the Black Baccara, 2 Hot Cocoa, Midnight Blue and Angel Face from heirloomroses.com

So glad you have everything secure now Toni. I'm sure everyone will feel so much safer now that the alarm system and motion detector are up and running.
We have an alarm here but only use it when we are gone. I know people in Memphis that set their alarm and take their house keys when they go out to their gardens. You'll get used to it-it's very reassuring.
I know the sound every time you open the door, setting it every time you leave and also turning it off, setting it every night at bedtime,it gets old some, but the security is worth it all.Glad you got it !
Good going Toni. The rose bushes are a great idea too. A member of church put thorny bushes in front of his childrens windows after they snuck out one night. They never let on that they knew about it, just planted the bushes the next day. The kids were very surprised.
Great thought Toni. Over half my new roses came from Heirloom. As they are first year roses grown on their own stock they arrive very tiny and need nurturing for the first season. They grew so much the first season you almost cannot tell them from the budded ones good luck. er
Oh yes, that sounds completely reasonable, roses will add to the safety factor for sure (clever of you!) -<-@ A rose to you!
Makes me happy to hear that you are 'alarmed up' now. Last thing we wanted to hear was the same happening to you Toni. Stay safe!
