As if it isn't bad enough that our famABBly in AL (and other areas across the SE) got hammered by all the tornados Wednesday and Thursday, John and his family were the victims of a home invasion last night that included armed robbery and assault and battery.

John usually works 3rd shift, but has been on 1st shift this week. His sons were having some friends over to watch a game out in a shed in the back yard that is sometimes used as a "clubhouse." John had gone to bed earlier in the evening, but was awakened by a ruckus in the back yard close to midnight. He walked out to see what was going on, was met by his son, John-John (aka, John, Jr.) in the hallway, and when asked what was going on, John-John responded, "I don't know, but I got a butcher knife and I'm going out to see." John then went to the back door, stuck his head out and asked, "What the hell is going on out here?" Two guys with T-shirts over their heads were in the process of robbing his two other sons, Duane and Taylor, and hollered at John, "Get back in the house," and fired a shot from a pistol at him. John ran back in the house and grabbed his 9mm pistol, but by the time he got back to the back door, the robbers had fled on foot. Taylor had been robbed of his cash from a freshly cashed paycheck, and Duane and Taylor both had their wallets and cell phones stolen. Taylor also got knocked in the head by one of the assailants with a pistol. Everyone was pretty much freaking out, but 911 was called, the Aiken Co. Sheriff's Dept. arrived and they brought in the blood hounds. They lost the trail of the robbers after about 5 blocks. Fortunately, John's two daughters weren't home (off to college) and his wife was in bed asleep and was not involved. Taylor had a small cut and a knot on his head from being gun smacked, otherwise, no one was hurt. They are shook up, and after some discussion between the boys, they think they may know who did it. Hopefully, the law will work the case and make some arrests and prosecute to the fullest extent of the law.

On a personal note, it freaks ME out to think my Road Dawg was that close to taking a bullet at the hands of EVIL DOERS. I can't imagine the fear and trauma of knowing one's child(ren) was put through such trauma. So, please, prayers for peace and comfort, and JUSTICE, for John and his family. Thanks.

Dave, have only had the opportunity to meet Bluedad & one of his daughters for a brief period of time at Wharfstock event here in NJ.

let me tell you, he is one of the coolest & nicest people you would ever have the pleasure of meeting.. just a great all around guy & you can tell that he is very close with his family.

I am sending all my prayers & comforting thoughts out to him & his family, what a shame..
Prayers sent!!!!!!!!!

That is AWFUL.
With so many "natural" disasters and trouble in this world, it is beyond sad and painful that humans continue to inflict more of it on one another.
So sorry.

John & Family, I am so sorry to hear of this! Just a reminder that we're all within a stray bullet of tragedy these days! John, I hope they catch these cowards and they're dealt with in the same manner they they chose to invade your lives and property! Thankful that there are no serious physical injuries, and hope the pain and shock of having your home and lives invaded is shortlived! Thinking of you and your family!!!

What a horrible thing to happen in one's own home and yard where any family deserves to feel safe.

My thoughts and prayers are with John and his family.

As horrible an experience that this was, things could have been so much worse...

We could have lost John...I wish him well.

Oh my GOD! What a terrifying thing to have happen! I am soooo sorry, Bluedad (and sons and friends).
I am so glad you are all okay and hope what injuries that were sustained heal up QUICK. AND, i hope they catch whomever did this awful and cruel thing. Stealing and assault are so terrible and SO scary. Thank goodness no one was shot.
Thinking of you, Howard family, and hope you can heal up quick, both physically and mentally! HUGS!

This totally just gave me chills and makes me so angry and sad! So thankful everybody is okay and that Janice slept through it and wasn't home alone. Damn scary times - good decent people being attacked and robbed all over this nation every day. Prayers, hugs and love to John, Janice, Duane, John Jr, Taylor and of couse, Adrian and Kirsten!!! Damn... this makes me so mad!!!!

Sounds awful. Glad everyone's OK. Could of been much worse. Met Bluedad very briefly at the beacon a few years ago. A very cool cat. I hope they catch the guys.
