Early Saturday morning I was awakened by the dogs barking as if someone was on the front porch. I wandered into the living room, and looked out the window and there was a police officer on my front porch. When an officer is knocking at your door it is never a good thing! Of course I thought it was something with my kids, panic struck in! The kids were fine. He asked me if I had a red rocking chair. I was of course sleepy and responded no, I don't have a red rocking chair. He said- well there is a broken chair in the street and it matches the color of your mailbox and other chairs on your porch. Then it struck me, I have a read chair in a small flower bed in front of the house that I always put a flower pot on in the summer, scarecrow in the fall, etc. I asked him if he saw a chair there, he said no, and of course the vandals had taken the chair and broke it to bits. He picked up the pieces and set them near the house. I didn't file a report, there was no money value in it. Pete and I found it at a garage sale, it was rustic, and I painted it and it looked so cute out there! Sentimental memories stolen by some stupid vandals!! The officer told me that in the last few weeks there has been 30 reports filed for vandalism!! It just made me angry!! That's why young punks should not be out at 4:44 a.m. in the morning, they only can get into trouble at that hour!
