I don’t know how many of you follow Rachel Lucas but I have for a few years. Recently, she’s moved to Britain (pay attention peiper) and blogs quite a bit about the differences between Texas and Britain. Funny as only Rachel can make it. But she does miss certain things…
My new best girlfriend.
I miss blogging about the news. Especially news involving elderly women, sauce pans, burglars getting hit with sauce pans, and hilarious after-action quotes:The 70-year-old wife of a Lorain County Family Court judge meted out a little domestic justice of her own Tuesday afternoon when she fought off four robbers with her favorite saucepan.
Ellen Basinski refused to be intimidated by a man and three boys who forced their way into her house on Columbus Street and demanded money.
“One of them picked up my purse and just dumped it out,” she said Wednesday. “Now, my purse is like Fibber McGee’s closet, it’s got everything in there. I got very angry.”
Before she even gave much thought about what she should do, she grabbed an Emeril Lagasse 5-quart saucepan.
“I picked up the saucepan and smacked him right on the head,” she said. “He looked at me and said, ‘Lady, why did you do that?’ And I hit him again.”
Ellen, I love you and would like to take your hand in marriage.
All four of the ‘tards ran away in fear and were immediately caught and charged with aggravated burglary. LOL. Sorry, it had to be said and said again: LOL. Thwarted by Grandma with a sauce pan.
Love ya Rachel. And I found the video:

“I’ve learned that alcohol can cause problems” Did she say that to be funny? What? Alcohol causes you to throw a bottle of Jack Daniels...and miss?
