Armed police raid My Mum and Dad!!

This happened last week. I couldn't believe it when mum told me. They'd just finished their lunch, dad was having a snooze on the sofa, mum had got up to take the plates back out into the kitchen when she noticed 'policemen' coming up the garden path. "Oh Jim!" sez mum, who had a kidney out a few years ago due to cancer,"There's policemen! what on earth can be wrong, quick you go!" Mum, thinking they were bringing bad news, shook dad awake. "You go!" Dad, who still has to wear a catheter after a spell in hospital three months ago, wobbled to his feet a bit puzzled. They are both in their middle eighties and hard of hearing. Luckily they opened the front door before it was bashed down, to armed policemen in full riot gear and tracker dogs! In our sleepy village we never see policemen and never ever with guns anywhere! There were police cars and vans everywhere. Mum said they wanted to search the house, they were all around the house, out the back, in the garden, out in the road. "We just didn't know what was going on! They were looking for someone with guns and knives!" One of the policeman's walkie talkie started buzzing and crackling and they rushed out, spoke to a neighbour then, quickly drove off again! "Wow!" said me, "Luckily you didn't go to adjust your catheter dad, (it's hidden, a tiny thing strapped to his leg) they might have thought you were going for a hidden gun or knife!" Of course, they'd made a mistake. My mum and dad aren't gangsters, although they did go as Al Capone and his moll to Emma's eighteenth birthday years ago! Hopefully someone from the police will apologize, it's a wonder they both didn't keel over with heart attacks!


  1. Yikes! Glad it ended well and nothing happened to your parents!

  2. Your poor folks - I should say that the Chief Constable should certainly carry out a visit to apologise personally. Hope they weren't too shocked

    All the best


  3. Oh my goodness, I would be freaked out. They should have apologized as they left.

  4. OMG Lyn, Your poor Mum and Dad...has there been any apology..
    Gosh, the outcome could have been real nasty..Hope they are over their trauma of facing the law.
    Take care of them.
    Luv CHRISSYxx

  5. My goodness, how frightening for your folks! AN apology from the police is definitely in order!! I hope your elderly parents will be fine after such a terrifying episode! Gee whiz!!

  6. Oh lordy...I couldn't imagine! They'd find me terrified and crouching under a table or something! That is definitely a story for the scrapbooks! WOW....

  7. Wow! That is awful and so frightening for anyone never mind an elderly couple! I hope they get over their ordeal OK and get a well deserved apology!


  8. That's when "Spyderwoman" comes home and stings the lead detective!

    I'm glad your parents are o.k. and nothing happened. Every once in a while I hear of this happening and you'd think the police would have all their p's and q's in line before making such a bold move.

  9. Your poor Mum & Dad having to go through that! I hope they do get an apology. Hope they are both ok.

  10. Good job it wasn't my 81 year old mother....she'd have set about 'em with a mop!
    Hope your mum and dad get a well-deserved apology...and a bouquet and a bottle of plonk...ha!

  11. I hope your Mum and Dad are recovering from the shock. An apology would be nice!


Thank you so much for your comments! They make my day!!
