  1. It is a sad day, when one can’t leave things out for even a few minutes.
    As with the bikes, or the lawn mower that stolen ,as it was left in the yard
    for a short time while the lawn was being mowed a couple weeks ago.

    Some time ago ,a friend of mine was ready to somewhere, so the car
    windows were down and the motor running . She had to go back in the
    house for something , about 5 minutes, she came out to find the
    glovebox open and a couple things missing in daylight and in our
    parking lot,not on the street !
    So do we lock stuff up for the few minutes we may be gone or what!
    They whoever, are getting bolder and bolder. Of course things should
    be secured at night or when away.
