21. I had an attempted home invasion in Queens

It woke me up, not my SNOORING husband. The perp was trying to break into a basement window. I woke up my husband who ran for the closet to get and load his gun. We had a 2 year old at the time and could not leave a loaded gun in the nightstand.

I went to the window and pushed out the big metal window fan. I don't know whether he had a gun or not, but the sight and noise of the fan hitting the concrete below was enough to make him run. This happened faster than my husband could get and load his gun.

We have owned homes since 1974 in Queens, Long Island, and two differenent places in Florida. We only had ONE attempted breakin in what amounts to a generation. This does not include the time growing up, or living alone, which nothing ever happened.
