    Fairy Tale Endings - Goldilocks Let’s pick up this story from where the bear family returns from their nice stroll in the woods. Papa bear being the alert fellow that he is, notices immediately that something is off. Somebody has clearly been in the home. Mama bear quickly pulls out her cell phone and calls 911, providing dispatch with their address, adding that the home is a log cabin. The Sheriff’s Office immediately responds with two patrol cars, arriving in the area in short order. This is where the story gets concerning. There is a driveway going deep into the woods that forks multiple times, none of the forks marked with an address. One deputy takes the first fork. After a couple turns, she passes some kind of house made out of straw. Shouldn't have passed code, but she's not the building department. The next house she passes is made out of sticks. Better, I suppose. Finally, the driveway dead ends at a brick house, obviously built to withstand a hurricane. She turns around, passing along the way a wolf that is trying overly hard to look nonchalant. The second deputy took the second fork. As he’s driving along, he notices breadcrumbs along the side. Weird, he think, stomach rumbling ever so slightly. Eventually he encounters a home that appears to be made entirely of confectionary. Suddenly starving, he knows that this is not the house he is looking for. The two deputies reunite back on the main portion of the driveway and continue on. They eventually come upon a log cabin deep in the woods, catching a brief glimpse of a golden-haired girl disappearing into the shadows. Luckily for this family of bears, Goldilocks’s intentions were far from nefarious. The situation could have been much more dire. Having your address clearly visible on your driveway and house is an absolute necessity if you are in need of a quick response from the Sheriff’s Office. Help us to ensure your happily ever after ending. Be safe out there. JI
