I'm just a Who down in Whoville

We were burglarized early Sunday morning. It sucks, they got a bunch of small electronics that will be expensive to replace and my eye glasses. Eye glasses? I didn't understand that until I finally got in to the doctor and she told me cool frames sell fast online. Then it made sense why they didn't take a laptop or credit cards or my watch. They only wanted things in demand online that ship cheap.
Hell of a way to wake up on my birthday!
We couldn't find Sid at first, for what seemed like forever but was probably ten minutes. Once he popped out all freaked it put everything else into perspective. Things can be replaced.

And the Grinch, with his grinch-feet ice-cold in the snow,
Stood puzzling and puzzling: "How could it be so?"
"It came with out ribbons! It came without tags!"
"It came without packages, boxes or bags!"
And he puzzled three hours, till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store."
"Maybe Christmas...perhaps...means a little bit more!"

OK, it wasn't Christmas, and they didn't steal any birthday gifts. I tried not to let it ruin my day, friends came over for brunch and you know, that's what its all about. Everything else is just fluff.
I truly appreciate everyone who reached out Sunday, its a wonderful feeling when all the good things you've believed about your friends is confirmed.
Thanks everyone for being a friend.

  1. love will ALWAYS conquer evil. always.

  2. I am so glad that you Erin Marie and Sid are okay. You guys are the nicest and most genuine peopke I know and I'm proud to call you my friends.

    Happy Birthday Bob!

  3. So glad you two were able to enjoy your birthday. AND so glad Sid was ok!!! Stuff can be replaced. Fur kids can not.

    Love the pics mojo took, and she is correct about love!

  4. so, in celebration you let a bunch of people case your home & then try to torch it?
    That really sucks & those morons don't think about things like securing pets, etc.
    Hope nothing was damaged and building security has something to offer.
    Were you guys home at the time?

  5. Quimbob: Yes, sound asleep upstairs.

  6. Some folks have odd ideas about how to say Happy Damn Birthday. Eye glasses? ...just seems yellow-bellied low down.
