Today In History - It Was A Very Lucky Day For Carol DaRonch....

...and also a day that provided law enforcement with information they needed to help apprehend a heinous serial killer. On November 8, 1974, 18 year old Carol DaRonch was approached by a man claiming to be a police officer. He told her there had been an attempt to steal her car. She accompanied him into the parking lot of a Murray City mall where she had been shopping and got into that man's car. Suddenly, the man placed handcuffs onto her (reportedly both wound up on the same wrist as she struggled with him) and tried to beat her with a crowbar. DaRonch did exactly what many police departments and leftist civic groups try to deter crime victims from doing - she fought for her life. The result was that she was able to escape from her abductor. It is almost certain that had she not escaped she would have been killed because that man was the serial killer Ted Bundy.



About 9 months later, in Seattle, an officer saw a Volkswagen that was suspicious to him. He pulled over the car and found handcuffs in the back of the car and arrested the driver - Ted Bundy. Based in part on evidence supplied by DaRonch, Bundy was convicted of kidnapping and put in jail and the investigation of him as a suspected serial killer went into overdrive. More here and lots more here.

Grandfathers Are Best

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between Grandmothers and Grandfathers? Well, here it is:

There was this loving grandfather who always made a special effort to spend time with his son's family on weekends.  Every Saturday morning he would take his 5-year-old granddaughter out for a drive in the car for some quality time: pancakes, ice cream, candy - just him and his granddaughter.

One particular Saturday, however, he had a terrible cold and could not get out of bed. He knew his granddaughter always looked forward to their drives and would be very disappointed. Luckily, his wife came to the rescue and said that she would take their granddaughter for her weekly drive and breakfast.

When they returned, the little girl anxiously ran upstairs to see her grandfather who was still in bed.  "Well, did you enjoy your ride with grandma?" he  asked.

"Not really, PaPa, it was boring.  We didn't see a single asshole, queer, piece of shit, horse's ass, socialist left wing Obama lover, blind bastard, dip shit, Muslim camel humper, peckerhead or son of a bitch anywhere we went. We just drove around and Grandma smiled at everyone she saw. I really didn't have any fun.

Almost brings a tear to you eye, doesn’t it!

A hat tip to mein freund Rich M for that one.

All the best,
Glenn B
