Anyway, Dan was asking whether we had noticed anything missing from our backyard lately. We don't have much to steal - a few garden rakes with missing tines, a wheel barrow with a flat tire, and if I could only get someone to "pinch" the memorabilia in the shed that my husband still hangs onto!! No unfortunately we had nothing missing.
Apparently what had gone missing from his garage were his cigarettes and his "pot." He added that he wasn't going to report it to the police - good idea! Now even in a respectable neighbourhood, I can sometimes smell the sweet scent of marijuana, wafting through the trees at the back of the garden. Our neighbour on the other side, who has two university degrees and a daughter in medical school, is diabetic and uses the drug for pain relief. Our eldest, who smokes regular cigarettes, enhances a few from time to time and obviously our new neighbours do too, or at least the husband does.
The theft, I believe, was an "inside job." I know that lots of people used to hide their liquor in the basement or the garage, when it wasn't that respectable to drink or when they wanted more to drink than what was respectable, but I had never thought of cigarettes. Someone had to have known they were there. Now my suspicious mind went into overdrive.
I had overheard some arguing about 3:00am the other night, but I just thought that my husband was "scolding" the 20-year-old for being out "at all hours." Well, it wasn't them. On the other hand, we do live in the city near lots of bars and restaurants, so anyone could have been walking by including the thieves. "Agatha" would have figured it out!! Now, I am going to be on the look out for strange "things" happening - this could be a 24/7 job, because there are always lots of strange things happening, in my mind anyway.
The picture, well you could say that I'm a little "bananas." But I do remember a time when drugs were not that plentiful and they were expensive. So some people used to try roasting and smoking banana skins. I'm not sure that it worked all that well. They are healthier eaten :)
Have a great day!!
