I live 5 houses away from where the bomb squad was. There was a small detonation, but Farm Bureau is open again.

Thanks Whatever. I was hoping it was something like this.

“Hey Jerry, move that dufflebag or whatever that is so we can get to work?”

“Uh, boss, what’s a dufflebag doing sitting here by a vacant 7-11?”

“I don’t know just move it, we’re on the clock so…hmmm……we’re hourly!…..on second thought, it’s probably a bomb. I’ll call the squad to blow it up and we’ll go get coffee. Nice work Jerry.”

Any word on what this was about? Would like to know since this is my area. @Momof1 I just heard that 7-11 was closed as well.

7-11 on Farm Bureau closed??? Wow. That’s the neighborhood slurpy store! Seems like just yesterday I was there choosing flavors. When did they close?

I stopped in at that 7-11 a total of 2 times (that I can recall). Each time I was panhandled before entering & the old guy behind the counter was surly at best. I stopped going there and I’ll bet most people with any common sense did too. I don’t like bums begging me for money & I don’t like businesses that resent me for being there. Good riddance!
