Barbecue and a Burglar.
Never again will I leave a window open and unlocked when I leave the house. We now have windows that you can leave open just a crack and they are locked tight.
We were enjoying a barbecue at a neighbors, just three homes along from our house. Mostly enjoying that is. What spoiled it, and caused us to leave early was our hosts three poodles. The other guests were throwing the dogs morsels from the barbecue, this was causing them to yap for more. Is there anything more irritating than a poodles yap?
Anyhow, we left only to find that we had an unwanted visitor while we were at our neighbors. He, I think it safe to assume it was a him, must have darted in taken my purse, a radio and a few other things, and left quickly.
We had left a window open at the front of the house. My husband makes me responsible for that window because I was the last to leave, it was just a few minutes after him. I say nuts. He should have checked the windows also.
Now we have these new windows and we leave them locked whether open a crack or closed. This way there is no chance of us walking out and giving a S.O.B burglar an easy entry into our home.
