    Angry I want to shoot someone!!

    like probably most of you, I carry my most common tools that I need in a bag and I take with me into the house. Moisture meter, camera, etc. etc. etc. well yesterday my house was broken into. So along with everything that they got including my laptop they got, you guessed it, my bag. I've never been hit like that, I've been sick in my stomach ever since. But thanks guys I just wanted to bitch.

    Ouch!

    That hurts just thinking about it.

    Hope you can get it all replaced pronto.

    Think of the positive side of it ... except for whatever data you lost in your notebook computer that was not also on your desktop computer ... you'll look like a newbie again with ALL BRAND SPANKING NEW EQUIPMENT!

    Instead of having some old, some not so old, some sorta new, some outdated, etc., equipment - yours will now be all new from the get go.

    We gotta envy that ... just not what it took for you to get to that point.

    I must admit I had not thought of it that way, but you do have a point. It's just that you get attached to some things and some things are just dame hard to find. I guess I get to go hunting again...... I do however kind of like the "buying ALL new stuff" though. I guess your right.. I'll look on the semi bright side.

    The burgulary sucks, but the idea of going out and getting all new tools sounds great. Makes me want to leave the door unlocked today.

    Think of it as kind of like Christmas.

    I hope they catch those rat bastards who took your stuff too.

    In Gainesville, Florida, around 1980 (give or take a couple of years) my work van (I was doing contraction back then) was broken into and cleaned out (I kept all my tools in the van in specially made racks, everything in its place, loaded to the hilt with tools.

    Upon moving to South Florida in June 1987, the night I moved down, my garage was broken into and several tools boxes containing many of my mechanical tools were taken.

    In 1994 our house (we had moved from the first house to this house in 1992) in South Florida was broken into and they took a bunch of jewelry, couple of TVs, and things like that.

    It always feels like you've been violated to the core, but you recover and get past it.

    To add to that: And ... them. (use your imagination to fill in the blank)

    Tony tell us that they did not get the cigars.

    I an deal with the tools. But to take a mans cigars.

    THATS WAR.

    I like good (AVO) Cigar Gold band with a glass of grand Marnier.

    Tony if you look at garage sales you can find old things. Its a good bet its kid just around the block from you house. check with Cops that work you area. i bet they know something. a good cop known all the kids in the hood.

    Best
