Another Yawner... (i.e. everything worked out great)

I seem to be making Detective Mendoza a bit nervous.  It seems that at every turn, every change of scenery, he makes a little comment.  Here is an example: I was driving the rental car a bit too aggressively over a bridge and he commented: "I bet if we plummeted off into the river, that would make a great entry for your blog, huh?  People would really laugh then wouldn't they!"  Darned if I wasn't thinking the same thing. 

He saw a police officer behind us and said, "Slow down; this is California; if they see the Latin guy first they will call for back up, that would be a cute little blog entry, right?" 

So we came to Stockton, California... we found everyone we needed to talk to right away, there have been no problems; it's a little scary. 

Well, we fly back home tomorrow, plenty of time for funny stuff, eh partner? He's watching Seinfield and not listening.

It's the pits when you are wanting something exciting to happen just so that you can write about it and then it doesn't happen!!! Keep Detective Mendoza with you and maybe he can give you some good ideas!!! lol....... http://journals.aol.com/shayshaydc/Golfaholic

Why is Mendoza fretting over your blog, Dave? Wonder if he reads it? If so, hi Detective Mendoza! :-)

If I were you I would enjoy this quite calm you are in at the moment - because you know it won't last - Must say Mendoza came up with a bright idea for your blog.....he's got a vivid imagination has your partner....get your pen and notepad ready the flight home may be exciting...you never know who you may be sitting near....oh well yes you do it's got to be Mendoza...

I think Detective Mendoza is pre-occupied with your blog instead of his job. I live in Southern California and most of the officers here are Hispanic or black, so that comment he made makes no sense to me. Anyhow, If Detective Mendoza is reading this comment, let him know that in Stockton California, the population is mostly Hispanic, so he should have no worries, LOL. Thanks for the cool blog entry and sharing your cases with us. They are intriguing to say the least. Have a great day.

Stay Safe and Vest Up.......
