Dropping in to say Hi. Life has been crazy and have thrown me some curves, but just wanted to thank my Sedum and Succ buddies I have not forgot the kindness you have all showed me.

I cannot wait to see how many of my semps survived.

Looking forward to discussions in 2014.

Hi back at you all.

I have to take some pics. I had a break-in and they took my cameras. I was trying to decide what I was going to buy. I had a Nikon SLR and two point and shoot Sony. Until I decide and do some more research I picked up a small point and shoot Sony. I hope the picture will be decent enough to post.

Valley a lot of the semps I traded for died. But we had a very bad winter, it was a winter I have not seen in my state in years. The ones I have left should increase. If they lived through that winter I know they are the tough ones so I will see what happens with what is left.

Did they catch whoever did the break in Cinta? How disturbing that would be. Do you have a dog? A nice Big dog?

The break in is a strange story......

I was only gone for 2 hrs. My BF is sick and I am caring for him. I have a huge dog, Mastiff, police trained for protection. Either I or my daughter accidentally closed the door to her bedroom. She could not get out. She did destroy the door. She sleeps in the spare bedroom that has dog pics and her bed is in that room.

Now the strange thing......They took my Lingerie drawer not just the drawer but the drawer and all my underwear. The pillows from my bed not only the pillow cases to carry the loot but the pillows too.

The police got finger prints but nothing yet. But they questioned the heck out of me because they said it appeared to be a stalker or scorned lover. Well I know it is not a scorned lover and if someone is drooling over me from a distance he will be doing his self a disservice if he dose not use his ill gotten gains to have his eyes checked because I am old and not cute..

My sister has named him the underwear bandit. Rolling on the floor laughing I am fine the insurance covered everything. The only items that hurts is they took my Mom's jewelry and I lost her 4 yrs ago. I have been crying a lot about that but.......I will always have her in my heart and they will suffer that I know.

Cinta, that is a strange story! Sorry that all that happened to you...yes, I can see why the camera wasn't a big deal compared to your Mom's sentimental items being taken too. I would've been heartbroken too.
If the bandit doesn't get his eyes checked I hope at least the underwear fits him... Rolling my eyes.

Cinta, I'm very sorry to hear about that.

If it's even the slightest consolation please know that yes, they will suffer for it.
Karma is one of the guiding principles in my life, as I have seen it in action (often in quite dramatic fashion) more times than I can possibly count.

Aww thank you all.

Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing Bev I missed you. You give me a laugh all the time.

I know they did not know me because everybody is afraid of my monster dog. She is a mean monster. I think that is why they snatched and grabbed so little they probably heard her upstairs. By the time I got home she almost had torn the door down. They did just my room and ran. My daughters jewelry and the laptops upstairs were not taken.

I know they were not druggies because I had Vicodin on the dresser from my root canal and they threw the meds on the floor. Can you imagine underwear and pillows vs Vicodin. I am thinking it was a kid shopping for a girlfriend or Mother's Day. Because the robbery was a ittle before Mother's Day. A lot of the items still had tags on them in the drawer.

They will pay one way or another Cinta. You may not even know when it happens to them. But it will. Thumbs up
