    I have to stop sometime and pinch myself and yep! I’m not dreaming…I know a couple that do just that…they don’t work an honest let me get tired and dirty.. . they are above that or at least they think they are…they steal everything… I keep my distance.They also do drugs..I am blown away that they are so bold and confident, they don’t seem to worry about getting caught..but one day their luck is going to change and I am going to read about them in NorthEscambia…even though this man was working ..he is still a thief and maybe he was a little to confident too.
