Still Hangin' In
Work has been a bit crazy lately. I'm not complaining. Oh, no, far from it. We enjoy being busy, but, we just aren't used to such activity. Rick has worked really hard in securing new clients. In the past, I have had orders to take a child away from the parent on two different occasions. I had talked to Rick about it. He was somewhat dismissive, thinking, I later learned, that I didn't really do it because I didn't have police authority to do so. Well, last month, we had another one. I let Rick take the lead in taking the child away. We had police back-up, but, they never got out of their cars nor did they assist in any way. Rick spent 40 minutes talking the woman into giving him the child with no further consequences. Of course, she could have been arrested for contempt of court if she didn't comply. Anyway, afterwards, Rick said,"Give me a cocktail!" He says he'll never do it again, but, in our line of work, we can't really rule out any particular kind of paper that we will or will not serve.
