A Letter to My Dog, Half Pint

This last year may have been the worst one of my life, but at least I've got the world's two greatest dogs by my side to help me stagger into 2018. Today's post features a letter to Half Pint. Benjamin will be getting a letter later this week--he'd never let me hear the end of it, otherwise.

Also, this posts features a lot of short video clips of Half Pint being silly. Since I apparently can't do anything right these days, they are exclusively shot in vertical mode. Please accept my apologies (and cut me some friggin' slack).

Weird Crime: If Momma Ain't Happy, Someone's Getting A Squirrel to the Chest

North Charleston, South Carolina

On the evening December 24, 2013, 44-year-old Helen Ann Williams sent her husband out to buy beer. Not only was this an odd request to make of one's spouse on Christmas Eve, but it was also futile since every stores was closed.

When Williams' husband returned home without the booze (and started making himself a sandwich) Helen became irate. But instead of simply yelling or threatening to cancel Christmas, she hit him over the head with a ceramic squirrel...and then stabbed him in the shoulder and chest with it.

Williams husband wisely ran across the street to a neighbor's house and called 911. When the police arrived, however, is where things went from scary to ridiculous.

When the officers asked Helen why there was blood all over her hands, she replied that the blood was not her husband's and that it had already been there.

So you've got another victim's blood all over you...good to know.


With regards to the the blood that was all over her husband's shirt the the deep gashes on his shoulder and chest, she tried to old "he just fell and cut himself"excuse.

Luckily, the police weren't buying it.

Helen Ann Williams was arrested and charged with criminal domestic violence of a high and aggravated nature (is there any other type?). She is currently in jail on $10,000 bond.


Santa better have made sure that the lump of 
coal she got didn't have any sharp edges.
