My truck gets toilet papered, investigation begins

October 18, 2012

My beautiful, gun-metal silver Chevrolet Z-71 truck was violated last Friday night. It had toilet paper all over, and under, it.
During my ongoing investigation with Randall Latham, “The Foothills Neighborhood Watch” president, surveillance video of the “criminals” has been discovered — Kenzie Newman.
Get this. Kenzie's grandmother, Linda Newman, was driving the getaway vehicle. What's the town of Poteau coming to when grandmothers are committing violent acts to people's trucks?
Go Bandit League teams, beat Greenwood (Ark.) White
Go Pokes, beat Iowa State.
Save the world — recycle.
