I HATE a THIEF!!!

I don't like to use the word hate; I think it is harsh, but sometimes it fits. Our riding lawn mower was stolen. I couldn't believe it. I immediately started checking on other things - hubby's tools, etc. Nothing else seems to be stolen, which is so bizarre...but I guess they knew what they wanted - and they took it. I say they, because I know it would have taken two people to move this large, heavy lawn tractor as they call them in the stores. What worries me the most is that we have been violated. Coincidentally, I read the online news this morning and there was an article in which the sheriff of our county was interviewed saying burglaries and thefts are on the rise right now in our county and that this one particular rural subdivision was the highest hit area. Well, our house is 2 miles from this subdivision. Aack! I will be reporting this to the Sheriff's office today. I still can't believe it :( This kind of thing really makes you change the way you live and watch everything closely. I hope everyone has a great day.

So where was the lawn mower? It's funny what people take and don't take. Remind me sometime and I'll tell you what happened to us. I'm guessing you have some insurance
