I am not sure I mentioned this here or just in the blog but I am cleaning out carport/shed. I really have not used it for my car in a long time because Tony could not walk so I pulled up to the front door, close to the porch. So the carport got cluttered and nothing was organized and to tell you the truth, I would toss it all in the trash, but some of it was not mine. But now that he is able to walk so I wanted to park my car inside it so I have been cleaning it out, working a few hours a day. Till Today.............. I made sure I cleaned inside before walking the dogs and working outside because I knew I would be tired and just as I was coming inside to wash my hands, I had been playing with the dogs, I seen a car on the road going really slow. It had a light on top like the mail man, they use cars in this area and not mail trucks, so I was not concerned. Till.......... It made a U turn in the road passed my driveway and came back. I came inside and told Tony someone was coming so he went outside. They did not pull all the way up behind our cars and he walked up, checking things out. He wanted to know if we wanted any limestone work done. HUH?.............. We said "NO." He walked back to his car and eye balled everything in the carport! THIEF! The car was sort of nice, but he had it so he could change it fast, he had wax all over it, you know the old turtle wax that makes it white till you rub it off and I noticed the light was rigged and tied on the top. He backed out so I could not get a tag number. There was more than one in the car but they were sort of laying back. That is what will make you take all your stuff and hide it. I worked from 2 pm till 5 pm. I got another section of fence built and up. I got the carport cleaned and what little was left organized. Then I put my car inside. I am so tired! I had only planned to do half of what I did for the day. Damn thieves. Next project. Make the gate so I can keep them a block away. How was your day?

You were extremely smart to catch on what they were up to. Just from your description alone I came to the same conclusion that they were thieves casing out your place. Well, if that doesn't motivate you to get things done, I don't know what will. And to think I was going to say a nice reward from my girlfriend is enough to motivate me to get things done! lol

Time to get outside cameras! Especially when you live in a rural area. I live with neighbors so close that we see everything about each other. My retired neighbor next door can tell you the comings and goings about everyone on the block. I guess there are benefits, though. It wouldn't be easy to break in and try to steal anything big out of here without the neighbors seeing. Even a strange car parked in front of my house draws attention.
