The head lights failed one December night leaving them to drive through country roads in the dark. The mechanic said the electrics were and everything would go up in flames if driven. Janet took the seller to court and won. But when the Sheriffs arrive, the he is less than pleased to see them and calls the police.
Diamonds are forever
When a couple found out the engagement ring they had just bought was not quite as it seemed, they ended up having to take the jeweller to court, where the Judge agreed that he has misrepresented the ring and had to pay them back. When he still refused to pay they called in the Sheriffs. Did the Sheriffs seize the diamonds? Did they put the sparkle back into love’s young dream?

He asks the Sheriffs for help, but will they be blown away with excuses?
