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 so sorry officer,” Danielle blushed, “I’m just completely embarrassed.”

Officer Roberts hooked his thumb into his belt, “No need to be embarrassed Mrs. Martinez.  I can see where you’d think that someone tried to pry open your rear screen door here, but I assure you, these marks are just dirt and spider webs.”

“Thank you, officer.” Danielle replied, “Sorry to waste your time.”

“Better safe than sorry.” Officer Roberts replied as they walked around the side of the house.

From the bushes a few feet away, the dirt and spiderweb monster watched them leave. He would wait until tonight.

“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.”

Officer Roberts was about to get back into his patrol car when he felt a tug at his pants leg.  Looking down he saw a brown duck looking up at him.

Officer Roberts looked at the duck, wondering if it had, in fact just tugged on his pants.  The duck looked up and, gesturing with her wing, pointed to the far side of the busy street.  Officer Roberts was then startled to see six ducklings appear and join their mother in pointing across the street.  Smiling, he nodded and stepped out into the street and stopped traffic for the ducks.

Burlingame Avenue, 8 a.m. Friday An officer responding to reported traffic hazard escorted ducks across the street.
