Somehow I doubt the Turkish flags would help.  If they respond at all, and recall the Turkish genocide of Armenians, they might respond by stealing all of the avocados and cutting down your tree, in revenge, thinking you might be Turkish.  I would hate to see you in an ethnic conflict!

I would post a sign stating "You are stealing food from a poor old lady - please be kind!".    Because, that is what they are doing.

Pat, they're definitely Armenian...when the police were here the first time they had to call in an interpreter to (TRY to) explain "private property" and "trespassing" to them.  They have some sort of organization(s) that help them emigrate, buy houses, and slowly take over the towns around here that are NOT part of the City of Los Angeles.  While driving property values (but not taxes) down.  The entire city management and police dept. of Glendale is now Armenian....probably 2nd generation....

Trailer trash manners.

Joan, "H.O.I." = "Holiday On Ice."...same as "U.S.N." = "United States Navy."  And I certainly am retired if Holiday doesn't exist anymore (and my feet are so painful that I can barely walk, let alone skate.)

Randall, I have been thinking of turning the hose on them....have to water the tree, anyway. We just have very strict rules about when people can water their yards, and for how long....because of the drought.  (Of course, the laws don't apply to Big Ag, and they  make no effort to conserve water.....)

Kathy, I wouldn't know where to buy pepper spray...or Mace.  And I don't know whether or not it's legal here.  The way the wind has been blowing since last night, I'm likely to get any spray right back in my own face.

Nah....I think printiing about 3 letter-sized Turkish flags (I think I have enough ink left for that), and taping them tightly around the trunk of the tree....at eye level...will shock/horrify/insult them enough to keep them away.  AND let them know that we DO know a little history....and don't give a shit, if they can't be bothered to respect our property.

I like Kathy's suggestion - pepper spray. And, put out the Turkish flags. You mention they are Armenians. Not trying to sound too overtly racist, but are you sure they're not Romani (gypsies - not Mormon presidential candidates). If they are, I don't think the Turkish flag would upset them.

Put the flags out. And spray them with pepper spray. I know that sounds mean but I think it would put a stop to the thieving! If it's not illegal there. What are they going to do? Complain?
Comment by Randall Smith on January 24, 2015 at 8:07am

Spray them with a hose. After all, you're just "watering your lawn"!

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 24, 2015 at 3:57am

That's right, I remember now, "The Ice Witch". Is  H.O.I. "Hearts of Iron"? You haven't really retired, have you!

Comment by sk8eycat on January 24, 2015 at 3:03am

That's why I thought of it...a nasty little threat, and a reminder that they are NOT invincible. (Nobody is.)

I have never claimed to be a nice person.  One of my nicknames was "La Bruja del Hielo."  Now it's "La Bruja del Hielo, H.O.I. (Ret.)

Comment by Joan Denoo on January 24, 2015 at 2:22am

Felaine, I think that is an excellent idea. Except, it was the Turks who slaughtered the Armenians, wasn't it? Maybe not such a good idea.

Myeh-heh-heh-heh...........
