I thought Claudia was alarmed already and tried to secure Norm.
Oh yes, a trombone alarm! Sadly this instrument is often relegated to a few background “boops” and “beeps”. But take a listen:
Norm and Claudia are Ballard’s Official Greeters… go figure.
He’s ready to go now.
Ok Norm, give us everything ya got…..toot that horn,blast that sound….
I remember tripping for a fence similar to that one Halloween when I was a kid. Didn’t see it, it was dark out.
Norm and Claudia are trying the trombone when they found that a kazoo or an accordion didn’t have the desired effect.
See how Norm takes the fun job and leaves the back breaking work to the little woman.. although from this angle Claudia is not that little..
Claudia is no fool. Note that she started setting the perimeter right next to Norm. That way, when she finishes it and he commences to alarm the neighbors, she will be as far from Norm as possible.
Ironically, the alarm Norm is preparing to sound for, and Claudia is securing the perimeter from, is because of the fact that Norm’s trombone gets mysteriously broken shortly after every time he sounds the alarm…
Where’s the minefield?
Seriously Claudia? That fence couldn’t even stop a bunny.
Ohhhh, the evil anticipation!
Claudia needs to secure Norm. I am alarmed.
“Alarmed Resident Found Impaled On His Trombone”
Sources say that his wife, Claudia, claimed that Norm tripped on a small decorative fence and was fatally impaled on his trombone’s outer slide tube, which apparently became loose as he fell. His wife, Claudia, stated that he had become increasingly protective of the perimeter of his property.
She stated, “God help me, but I think that’s the way he would have wanted to go.”
The DA is looking into the case and will made a determination whether to press charges based on statements by neighbors that Claudia had become increasingly upset with Norm’s trombone playing in the front yard of their residence on Ballard Street.
