Not gonna talk about what weapons we may or may not have. =D

My sentiments exactly, if I ever have a weapon I'm not going to talk about it.

That's a great idea--never encountered those. What happens when you polish them though?

They stay put. Extra force has to be applied, more than when cleaning them, in order to get them out. My folks have had the place since 2004 and never needed to get out through the windows, but they've been washed many a time (good thing, eh, in 13 years! LOL ) and stay in place. I don't know that my little grandma would have had the strength to push a window out had there been need, but my nephew's room was right next to hers and my folks taught him that, if there were a fire, he would be the one to get to Grandma first and help her. He would have had the strength to push them out if needed. I'm just glad that we've never, to this point, needed to try them!

Made me wonder (my old lightbulb flickers from time to time). If I had a set of decking plate pullers I wonder if I could pull out the window to get to a victim or...rob your house? Have you ever attempted to rob your house by pulling out the windows (if I just had the knee slap laughing emoticon).

:smilie_frech_015:There is no ROFL emoticon, either, but this was funny! No, I've never attempted to rob my house - by pulling out the windows or any other way. I'm still chuckling as I write that (picturing myself robbing myself  LOL).

Tell you what - you can give it an attempt. Then you'll find out if we have any weapons or not. hehehehehe

How far north have those rock pythons come? I know they will attack pets and small children. They are very stealthy and tenacious when hungry. Have they attacked any adults? 

The largest snakes I've ever seen here, except in zoos, are diamondback rattlers and those do hurt people pretty bad. It may not be 'tropical' enough this far north for those invasive species of boas and pythons, but then again, we don't live in a jungle/river bottom area either . I thought those were in the Everglades region.
