Carl gnashed his teeth as he glared at Doris.  He realized his firsts were clenched and there was a small tickle in the back of his throat from the previous 15 minutes of yelling.

For her part, Doris stood with her arms crossed, eyebrow cocked and her, “I know I’m right smirk” on her face and stared right back at him.

The street, for a moment, was quiet.

Carl inhaled, then, thinking a change of tone was needed, said in a voice just above a whisper, “It’s an Elm.”

“IT’S AN OAK!” Doris raged throwing her hands in the air.

9:00 a.m. Neighbors on the 1100 block of Lincoln Avenue disputed over a tree.

“I’m telling you David, it’s not here.” Elaine said, hands on her hips.

“It has to be.” Came David’s reply, his voice muffled as his face peering under the couch as they searched.

“Well, I’ve looked everywhere.  The garage, outside, in here but I can’t find it.”  Alain replied.

“If it was here we would see it.” David said, resigned.  “It must have been stolen.”

“Stolen?” Alain said incredulously.  “We’ve been here the whole time.”

“Well, I can’t explain it, but someone taking it the only logical reason why it’s not here now.” David said standing, “I’m calling the police.”

Let them eat cake!
By Grant Baciocco

“Have you brought cake?” Dolores shouted down the hallway at Agnes.

Agnes leaned her cane against the wall and pulled back the bed sheet she had covering the cart she’d taken from the cafeteria.  The cart was laden with cakes of all varieties.  Chocolate, strawberry, vanilla and more.  Agnes smiled, “As you can see, I have.  And you?”

Dolores gestured to her left and Agnes could now see that the long table in the hallways was covered with several cakes as well.

“Then we’re well prepared.” Dolores said.

“Indeed.” Agnes replied.

The air hung heavy between them.

Agnes inhaled, “Fight!”

Trousdale Drive, 7:40 p.m. Oct. 2 Two patients at a long-term care facility involved in a cake fight were contacted and counseled.

Slosh, Slosh
By Grant Baciocco

Slosh, slosh.

The sound that woke Lorraine from a deep sleep.  She held her breath.

Slosh, slosh.

She sat bolt upright in bed and looked towards her bedroom door.

Slosh, Slosh.

It was louder now.  She swung her feet over the edge of the bed and jammed them into her slippers.  Grabbing her robe, it was on her by the time she reached the end of the hallway.


She screamed.  Sure whatever horrible creature was making the sound was at her front door.  She threw open the door and there stood a man with a mop.

Slosh, slosh.

Saturday, November 10 – 4:12 a.m. A citizen on the 1700 block of California Drive reported loud cleaning taking place.
