It’s been a week, y’all. I mean, at least we haven’t been stuck in a cave for two weeks, so there’s that. But I’m over this heat, humidity and rain! Not to mention all of the political ads on the ol’ boob tune! Maybe a cave doesn’t sound all that bad after all! And I mean one you can easily get out of. (Very thankful all of those kiddos got out of the one in Thailand.)
Anyway, I guess that’s a bad idea, as it ain’t easy gossip-gatherin’ in a cave. It ain’t that easy when the weather stinks either, but I’ve tried to scrape up as much as I can. So enjoy!


The blotter
I think the heat has driven people to the brink of insanity, at least judging by the police reports issued by MPD. Check these out:
“On Sunday, July 8, 2018, at approximately 1:38 a.m. police responded to the 400 block of Westwood Street in reference to suspicious circumstance complaint. The victim stated she found a female inside of her bedroom wearing her clothing.”
I guess you don’t want to steal jeans if they are going to make your butt look big!
And then there was this one. Some people use guns, others brass knuckles, but real men use their Frigidaires!
“On Friday, July 6, 2018, at approximately 4:45 p.m. police responded to the 200 block of Hosfelt Lane in reference to an assault. The victim stated he and his uncle got into a verbal altercation and when he opened the refrigerator his uncle came from behind and punched him in the face. The victim also stated his uncle slammed his hand in the refrigerator door. The victim was transported to the hospital with minor injuries. The uncle fled the scene.”
No word on if the refrigerator sustained any injuries.

More mysterious Mobile creatures?
First we learned of the existence of Snow Cain, the downtown albino squirrel who frequents Ryan Park and Spanish Plaza. Then there was Perees the Peacock, who strutted his stuff around Spring Hill for a bit. Now I have caught wind of another special creature spotted in Mobile, at a home off Azalea Road. It seems a very rare, white sparrow has been spotted in one local couple’s backyard. We will keep you posted!

Well kids, that’s all I have for you this week. With the Nappies coming up, it’s getting crazy around Lagniappe World HQ, so pray for us. And just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous or some plain ol’ trying on stranger’s clothes lovin’, I will be there! Ciao!
