A Nasty Turn [Jan. 21st, 2008|09:04 am]
Tony Grist
Ailz drew the blinds this morning just in time to see Sameena-next-door walk over to our car and give it a long hard look as if something were wrong. We rushed out to check and found a black hole where the passenger window should have been. "We've been broken into," said Ailz. I felt around- no broken glass- and then I remembered how we'd been checking the tires yesterday with a compressor that plugs into the dashboard and had the window wound right down and- well- we'd  only gone and left it open all night.

It's been raining hard. I guess the seat will be wet.

We're off to Glastonbury for a couple of nights. Birthday treat.

Stupid, stupid, stupid. No-one broke into the car though. Mind you it does have a thingy where you can't unlock the car so they'd have had to climb in through the window and out again.

Happy birthday! And I can't think of a better place to celebrate than Glastonbury. I love the magnificent Abbey ruins.

Thanks.

I'm back- and I'll be posting pictures of the Abbey- and other things over the next few days.

Sometimes I think my camera is permanently attached to my hands.
In other words, yes. Many many pictures. We just got back from Norwich.

Being forgetful trumps broken into any day.

A few years back our car _was_ broken into.

The window was broken and on the ground a few feet away was one of our tapes, which Barbara left laying on the seat.

While I'm not a CSI tech I was able to piece together what when through the criminal's mind:

They saw a lone tape laying on the passenger's side seat, broke the window, grabbed the tape, discovered that it was Phantom of the Opera and dropped it on the ground.

Heh-heh-heh.

We've had the car broken into a couple of times. It's a risk you take if you don't have a garage and have to park out on the street.

Happy Birthday again!
Wish I could go with you two to Glastonbury -- I have read so much about it, but would like to live long enough to go there -- also to the standing stones and other places of antiquity - Hadrian's wall, etc.

I go back to Glastonbury about once a decade. It's one of my very favourite places.

It's the sort of thing that's very easily done.

That sounds like something that we might do! I hope your seats were not too damaged!

Re: Please look! :-)

I noticed that we both have Audrey listed as an interest! She was so beautiful and such a great lady. You are very welcome. I do hope that you had a good birthday?
