As I travel about the area in my day-to-day routines I'm often pulling out my camera and snapping quick pics for future Blog fodder. There are shots of church signs, odd signs, the auto port, the bridge, trees budding and of course, the critters.
Possible Blog topics percolate in my head for days and sometimes even weeks.
Sadly, I am jotting down these words with no fore thought.
My neighbour came over this morning to tell me my car's interior light was on.
"No worries", I said, "it'll be OK".
"You better check it" she quickly added. "Several cars were broken into last night."
Thoughtfully I'd saved them the trouble of breaking into my car last night.
I'd left it unlocked.
My treasured iPod, a retirement gift from my friends at Trent University, was gone.
So today I'm sad.
I'll treat myself and the dogs with a walk at the beach and I'll putter in the garden.
But gosh -- I wish I'd locked my car last night.
