Emergency, 911

I received this e-mail from a neighbor tonight:
"We had our motorcycle saddlebags riffled through and the jacket, hat etc. tossed out and 1 glove taken. Our neighbor had his bicycle stolen. Both were on Pearl. Detective Sheehan said we should watch for " kids". I asked that the curfew be enforced by the patroling officers."

My first instinct was to feel sympathy. My neighbor was robbed! Then I re-read the email and realized that she had only lost one glove. Logic tells me that she lost that glove somewhere else. Why would any theif have a pair of gloves in their hand and decide to take just one of them? It doesn't make sense. If I had been a "victim" of a stolen glove, I don't think I would broadcast it to hundreds of my neighbors, with the subject line "notice of neighborhood break in". On the other hand, maybe it was a very nice glove. It must've been VERY nice, otherwise why would you send out a neighborhood-wide alert? Until the curfew laws are changed, or enforced better, I'll be on the lookout for a gang of kids (they'll be easy to spot- one of them is wearing one glove!). Who knows what dastardly crimes these kids have in mind- they may be scheming to steal the weeds from my flower garden next!

Cletus is on patrol right now and barking to find the one-gloved teenage punk who stole that glove!! Are you preparing the tar as I find the feathers? (I have lots of them from the pillows Cletus has chewed up.)

Also, not to defend these dastardly deeds but do they keep their bikes outside at night???

EP, I'm sorry for the delayed response... I was in the front yard with my dogs keeping an eye out for those ruthless "kids".

I tried to post pictures but they wouldn't post.

Can't stop thinking about those evil-doers and wonder if that glove might have been lost some time ago. What are they doing with gloves, scarves, etc. in the saddle bags in JUNE???
