I wasnt scared. I was so damn mad, the veteran of the war in the Pacific told reporters. The 95-year-old was able to wrestle alleged burglar, Gary Wells, to the ground before the homeowners daughter ran downstairs to help fight the thief off.
Freds motivated 51-year-old daughter Mary then took off after Wells, chasing the burglar for six blocks before catching and holding him for police. I was mad because of what he did to my dad, Mary said. We jumped over two fences and ran through 12 yards, the Marines daughter added.

Semper Fi ...
Gary Wells run down by a 51 year old woman! She’s quite fit or he is a basket case druggie...or both.
I hope Mr. Wells thinks up a good way to explain this to his cell mates.
Oorah! This story made my day!
Daddy raised one hell of a daughter.
A large group of ISIS fighters in Iraq are moving down a road, when they hear the voice of an American from behind a sand dune, Hey you bastards! One Marine is better than ten wimpy ISIS fighters! The ISIS commander quickly orders 10 of his best men over to the sand dune, where a gun battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes. After a minute of silence, the voice calls out again, One Marine is better than one hundred of you ISIS scumbags! Furious, the ISIS commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and a huge gun fight breaks out. After 10 minutes of battle, there is again silence, until the voice calls out again, One Marine is better than a thousand ISIS fighters. The enraged ISIS commander musters 1,000 fighters and sends them to the other side of the dune. Rifle fire, machine guns, grenades, rockets and cannon fire ring out as a terrible fight is fought then silence. Eventually, one badly wounded ISIS fighter crawls back over the dune and with his dying words tells his commander, Dont send any more men its a trap. Theres not just one marine over there .theres two.
That’s good :-)
Why did she chase her dad through town?
Oh, she chased the burglar...
51 year old gals can be quite frisky!
That's right! Name your pronouns people!
On the other hand - what if there was a guy named "Him".
Horrible headline writing, no?
I propose 95 year old Marine fights, daughter chases, burglar through town.
Yeah, that headline could have been written better.
“Horrible headline writing, no?

or for fun,
Burgler, after fighting 95 year old Marine, is chased through town by Marine’s daughter......
...mess with the best, get chased through town by the best’s daughter...

It’s like cops, or rhinos. They really aren’t all that fast, but you have to be very careful to stay out of their charge radius.
My dad sawed off the barrels on a Ted Williams/Winchester 101 Over/Under to 21” due to barrel damage. He kept it by the bed loaded with buckshot. The bedroom door was locked and latched. Anyone kicking in the door would have been in for a rude surprise.
Before anyone asks, replacing the barrels would have been as expensive as buying a used 101.
Talk about a shot to the gut...that’s my name also....
