Robbed-not us


My husband came home from lunch today and found out our neighbors directly across from us
had their house broken into that morning and a few things stolen. My initial reaction was to think 'what things could be stolen from our house?' I can't think what they would take, don't have a flat screen-(finally there is a positive about not having one :) and anything else taken in the house could easily be replaced at Ross, sad but true, another positive reason to shop there. I began thinking why them? they are always home and I mean 99% of the time because their retired.

I wonder what motivates a bugler, especially in this case. I began thinking what if their house was scouted out by someone or was it just on the fly bugler. The only difference in our houses from the outside is that my husband has a dog warning sign on the fence and for the first time ever I'm glad our dog has a scary bark and that her bite is definitely worse then her bark-watch out!
Sorry Grandma Cindy

Spooky . . . very unsettling when it happens so close . . .

it made me think about what is really valuable. anything in the house could go, it's the people plus the pet :) that's important

that would make feel pretty unsettled. kinda like a feel living in an apartment complex...but maybe a little worse.

sorry to say it, but I am glad it was them and not you. I'll have to tell Brenna about it so I can convince her that we need a guard dog!

wow, that is scary. i think dogs really are the best kept secret in the whole house alarm dept. they work wonders to keep em away, i am convinced.
