Weird Night..or..Oklahoma City rednecks can kiss my ass!

Geof and I camped out in a tent in the backyard last night. It was pretty good sleeping weather after the sun went down. No weird encounters with wildlife in the night although we did smell a skunk!

Speaking of weird encounters with wildlife. I got a call about 3am from Nathaniel. He was in Oklahoma City and had just been attacked by five drunken rednecks. He said he was walking out of a restaurant when one of them said something like, "Hey what are you doing?" Nathaniel told them he was leaving and then one of them punched him in the mouth and the rest joined in. Luckily Nathaniel had wits enough to dial 911 just after the first blow. He said the cops came shortly there after along with a helicopter. There were a half dozen witnesses who helped Nathaniel tell the cops what happened. Turns out all of the men who attacked him had warrants out for their arrest...mostly on assault! They all went to jail and Nathaniel went back to his hotel with a split lip and broken nose as far as he could tell.

I'm just thankful that things turned out the way they did. It could have been a lot worse. Ugh! It just makes me sick that there are animals like that out there.

I'm glad he called the cops, and I'm glad to hear that he seems to have held up well and wasn't hurt too badly - at least no permanent damage from what I could tell from your post.


More than one of them?! Five?!!That's not much of a fair fight. Not fair at all.
