I Told You...It's Never Boring Around Here


It's never boring around here.

We were headed home today, decided to stop for lunch in Irving.  Ran into a friend.  Ate, visited, had a great time.

Left the restaurant and what do we see?

Yup.  That's exactly what you think it is.  My window was broken.  Shattered.  

My heart jumped into my throat.  My head wanted me to have left the window down...but my heart?  Knew.  

We had been robbed.

We were packed to head home.  And in the second seat floorboard?  Two cases.


This is my first list of what all is missing, that I can remember, and an estimated cost.  (Which, now I know, I lowballed the MacBookPro.  I know this because I just went and purchased the replacement.)

I forgot my Speedlite Flash.  My Samsonite spinner case.

Then, this morning, remembered several sets of premium seat concert tickets...for George Jones.  Peter Frampton with Robert Cray.  Boz Scaggs.  Now I'm chasing those receipts down to get those replaced.

I'm sure I'll remember stuff for days.


  1. Ouch. Sorry to hear that. Hopefully they catch the person trying to sit in you seats at the George Strait concert.

  2. i know you are considering it "fodder" but it still makes ME feel violated FOR you.....I know when I thought my place had been robbed, I was practically incapacitated...until I found everything where I had stashed it...are you sure you didn't hide everything under the seat????

  3. also forgot to mention the window on your list. My house was broken into TWICE.

    I ended up pacing in the yard way after dark, because the house didn't feel safe anymore.

    You HAVE been violated, and they did get away with some damn nice stuff.

  4. That "misadventure" falls into the class of "extremely high nuisance value." You not only lost the computer, but everything in it.

    I'm so sorry this has happened. Not a good trip home.

    Blessings and Bear hugs!

  5. Shoot, that's a lot! I am sorry that happened to you.

  6. You gotta wonder about the brazen nature of smashing someone's car window in broad daylight in a populated area. Sorry it happened to you.

  7. Oh no - that's simply awful. Poor you.

  8. Oh I am so sorry this made me feel sick so I can only imagine how you are feeling. I am truly sorry this happened I hope you get the replacements you lost but I know the original is what you really miss. Dumb people out there it makes me mad. Take care. B

  9. That is just my worst nightmare. You had some expensive items, not to mention the data lost. I am so sorry and hope you can recover. I would feel horribly violated and feel violated for you and with you.


You know you have SOMETHING to say, so spit it out! I love comments!
