We live on a lake. Most houses in our subdivision are lived in daily. A few just get weekend visits and 2 week vacations (or whatever). It is a quiet subdivision.
Last night a house 5 houses down was broken into - door kicked in. The place was emptied except for some things left by the back door for later pickup. His next door neighbor had to take puppy out for a bathroom break at 3:30. At that time he saw a pickup and another car take off.
In the morning, he checked it out. Also missing was the guy's fishing boat.
It is 11:00 p.m. My next door neighbor just called and asked me to watch their house - they were chasing a small pickup pulling a trailer that took off when the neighbor drove up. It will be interesting to see if the cops learn anything.
I told her to call 911. Then, I went next door and pulled the garage door down and talked a while to Sue. Think I will go check again.
A "STONE" is a family word for a personal story or thought, not quite an essay or short story. We moved to central Texas to be near a daughter. We are down to only one wirehair dachshund - Sadie.
