Amazing. I have a great day yesterday only to have an entirely opposite day today. Actually it was a relatively good day until I came home from work to discover my bike had been STOLEN right off my back porch! Mind you..I live in a crappy apartment complex (Lou's car was stolen right from the parking lot last Christmas..we live close to the bridge to NJ and to Chester, PA..google it, you'll see). Basically I saw it coming. I didn't even lock it up. Mainly because the bike has two flat tires, the pedals won't even turn because the chain is so old and the frame is so rusted you'd think it was painted burnt orange instead of blue and white. I kept meaning to buy a bike lock, but I mean c'mon..who would want a crappy bike that doesn't work? Well clearly someone did. Someone who lives here. No outside traffic or pedestrian would ever pass by my porch. I can't help feeling betrayed. I imagine it was some punk kids. And more than anything else I want to grab them and shake them and tell them to stop being little hooligans and to go do something useful with their time besides "practicing" for when they're older to steal cars like Lou's.
Last month I saw two kids pushing around a giant tire. Just rolling it through the parking lot for fun. Where they got it, I haven't a clue. But that just goes to show you these kids have nothing better to do. Looking back at that now, I bet there was some car in the parking lot with only three tires.
I'm not even mad or sad that the bike is gone because I haven't ridden it in over two years. But I'm more amazed at the balls these people have to walk right up to my porch and take the bike while it was leaning right underneath the kitchen window. I've been grilling the cats for any inside tips, but their lips are sealed.
But really...the bike had two flat tires! Who steals a bike with two flat tires????
On a positive note..there's a few more things listed in the
shop. A new Plini and some sale items. Super duper savings...get em while they're delicious!
I'm also in the process of painting some incredibly precious items. Plan is to have them done this weekend! Picture this...pie, hamsters and birds.
