Larry's Wife Posted February 19, 2009 Share Posted February 19, 2009 My house was broken into today. Broke my bedroom window and left footprints all over my bed. Erg! I'm washing the bedclothes right now. Not much was taken. A rifle and (I think) a gold chain that I have owned since I was like 12. Sentimental, that one. Turns out it was the brother of an "ex" friend of Nick's. Their dirtbike came up missing overnight. Long story about why they thought Nick stole it (past incident in his life). So they said they took something of Nick's of equal value so he would return the bike. Well, he didn't take the bike and we have recovered the rifle. They swear they didn't take the necklace. And the diamond pendant that was on the chain is still in my jewelry box. And so are the rest of my baubles. So who knows. I decided not to call the police since we recovered the rifle. And I don't really want to ruin a young kid's future over what turned out to be a prank gone bad. But I'm out about $250 for a brand new window. They destroyed the frame, and since the house is old, they don't even make that type of window anymore. It turned out to be a good lesson for Nick. He handled himself well with the kid when he recovered the rifle. And he's learning the hard lesson about the importance of picking quality friends and how past actions gain you a reputation, whether good or bad. The rifle is now safely in the gun safe, where it should have been all along. And I need to rethink my alarm system. The big, mean-looking dog probably licked them to death. Stupid dog!
