Okay, new month . . . new craziness. Although, technically, since today is May 1, this craziness happened last month. Here's the story . . .
We woke up the other morning to find our front door wide open, our back door wide open, and our backyard gate wide open. The air conditioner was turned down to 62. We keep it at 72 with strict orders NOT TO TOUCH IT!! Freaky weird. And extremely cold. All of our children were home and nobody heard a thing. Not even our dog. Not a peep. Not a creak of the door. Nada. Although, personally, I think Izzy (dog) may have heard something as she was growling all night long. I just thought that she was hearing people going in and out of the bathroom all night - - seven people sharing one bathroom, and said bathroom is across the hall from our bedroom where we and our dog sleep. Yes, this is the same dog who has been mysteriously found (3 times) whimpering on our dining room table with no clue as to how she got up there - - mystery still unsolved. But that is a different story.
So, back to doors open. My daughter's laptop was right next to the front door. Not taken. My son's wallet was on the dining table. Not touched. What.a.bunch.of.stupid.criminals. We found a long board (a long skate board for those of you out of touch with today's lingo) on our front lawn. And . . .eew gross . . . we found blood on the inside wall near the front door. I do not even want to know how it got there.
After checking with each of the children, we determined that the doors were most likely left unlocked the night before. What.a.bunch.of.stupid.people. We live in a very safe neighborhood, but still . . . LOCK THE DOORS!!!
The police came and wrote a "suspicious activities" report and told us to do whatever we wanted with the long board - - throw it away, keep it, put it on the front lawn with a "you forgot something" note. It's in our garage - - those inept criminals will never see it again. So, we got a long board out of the incident, which is more than the intruders got, judging from the blood on the wall. But the whole thing did get me thinking about Izzy and the suspicous dining table incidents.
Do ghosts ride long boards? Just wondering.
