A bit of excitement here yesterday morning. An escaped convict came into the Arby's where my brother and his friends were having breakfast and shots were fired. They were waiting for their breakfast and saw about 60 police cars come up surrounding the building and this big tattoo faced guy came in waving his gun and screaming at them all to get down. He grabbed one of the employees and drug him to the back. An older customer who was at the counter jumped over and went to the back to try to get the gun away from him. The manager crawled out the drive-thru window. DB heard the gun go off and then DB & friends kept looking over the divider and heard his gun clicking so they figured he was out of bullets and all decided to make a run for it. DB was the first one out the side away from the gunman and his friends all went out the other way. The older gentleman did wrestle the gun away from the guy, but got cut on his neck with a knife. Convict locked himself in the managers office. We saw it all on helicopter surveillance. The guy shot and killed the cop who was transporting him to a medical facility, hijacked a car, over 100 mph high speed chase until they blew out his tire, into the Arby's. Crazy. This all happened at 7:30am and DB spent most of the day at the police station. I told him to come over here and I'd have some lunch for him. He crashed after that. And can you believe his dumb boss wanted him to come to work after all that? So pretty crazy day for us. Very glad to have him safe though and the convict back behind bars.
Other exciting news, ha, I went to the TS yesterday afternoon and found a Western Pottery cookie jar for $5. It looked old and like it would go with my other old crocks so I bought it. Found one like it online yesterday with a bid on ebay for $50! Pretty good investment! ha I need to do some more research on it to see how much it's really worth (may really be $5), but I think mine is original cause it has the maple leaf inprint on bottom. I love treasure hunting! ha I'll post a pic later in case somebody knows anything about it. Maybe Sal??
