Walkabout

The Boy went walkabout on us, again, last night.

It's an ongoing risk with a retarded "adult" child that they just sneak out and head where their heart pulls.

People with elderly relatives with dementia deal with a similar flight risk.

Police SOP is to search every nook and cranny of the house to see if they're hiding someplace, regardless of if The Boy is the type to hide rather than abscond.

You might have a couple too many AR's when the deputy's response to checking the room with the M12 rack is, "WOAH!" and his lieutenant asks "how many hands do you have?"

I did get kudos for proper storage from them.

It's also nice to see that our local deputies are firearms enthusiasts.

  1. I certainly hope he is safe and sound at home by now.

    We also have an adult autistic son who occasionally decides to go on walkabout.
    It scares the shit out of us because he doesn't speak well enough to be understood and like most autistic people, freaks the hell out when you start telling him to do something he doesn't want to do and Lord help ya if you put your hands on him. He isn't violent but he is a big boy at 6'1 and 185 lbs.
    Thankfully he doesn't decide to wander often, it's the police response to his autism that worries the shit out of me.
