Our township is a pretty safe place. When we read the local newspaper, there are few crimes to report. Across the line, into the city, it's a different story. But here in our township, it has been a pretty safe and crime-free place. Hubby has lived in this area for much of his life, and he attests to that.
So when I went to the bank last week and got the teller who lives on my street, I was surprised to learn about a break-in and robbery right here on our street - in broad daylight. The robbers got away with most of the electronics in the house - TVs, stereos, computers. I'm not sure if they have any suspects.
Now we keep the doors locked. Our big doggie has a HUGE bark, and he does watch out the window and let people know he's watching. Our small doggie has a pretty big bark as well. Still, I think they could be bribed, so we'll keep the doors locked from now on.
