Some Days are Better Than Others …

The other day .. I was just doing my thing, running on errands .. the bank, the post office and then grabbing some Taco Bell. I made a few calls along the way and left my new Motorola V3 Razr in the cup holder of my car. Just as usual I hopped out of the car, went in and had my lunch … a little later then usual at 3:00pm. You see I try to keep a schedule .. 2:00pm is lunch, ask any of my friends. After lunch its playtime with Rex in the backyard for 15 minutes or so. Now I’m back to work .. today I was trying to get up some Christmas decorations up before the weather changed .. yes, “Christmas” decorations, not “Holiday” .. I’ll celebrate things the way I want. OK .. back to the story .. I’m up on a ladder for an hour or two and its starting to get dark .. around 5pm or so. I plug in the lights .. kinda like the Grand Illumination you see on TV .. and nothing … not even a flicker. Everything comes down and I test it out. The lights were working fine just last year .. it just doesn’t make sense, I’ll save it for another day.
I’m a little frustrated by my failed efforts .. but I’ve got more to take care of today. Next up was a quick shower and take mother out shopping again .. tonight we hit Costco, the Spaghetti Warehouse and Wal-Mart. It was about 6:30pm when we jumped in the H3 and hit the road. I could have swore I left my phone in the car .. but I figured I must have brought it inside .. I’ll survive a few hours without it. We got some shopping done, loaded up the car and made our way back home .. now the search began. Next thing I’m looking for is my garage door opener, its gone too. Now, I live in a nice town .. it would be unthinkable that someone would steal something from my car, sitting in my driveway. Yes, it was unlocked .. and I was home .. the whole time. I like to think my neighborhood is safe enough that everything doesn’t need to be on “Lock-Down” 24 hours a day .. thats just ridiculous. Well sure enough .. my phone and my garage door opener were stolen. Whats puzzling is there were other valuables in the car at the time .. so I’m sure it wasn’t a pro. But feel free to come back and finish the job … because next time .. it won’t be the dog you’ll have to worry about .. next time you’ll be dealing with me …
