I was trying to take some pictures of the Christmas lights on Main Street to post on Life in Altamont this morning at a little after 6 o'clock. I parked my truck in what is considered a parking spot uptown and stood on the dashboard to take the picture. I heard a car pull up next to me and I didn't even have to turn around and look to know that one of our local policemen was "investigating" what I was up to. Really? You couldn't see I had a camera? I have to wonder where the local cops are while our soda machines at the grocery store are getting broken into!
