Thanks to all of you who have written emails to me and have commented on my "home invasion" posts. I am grateful to have not been hurt and I am much more cautious. I am remembering to set the alarm, to take my phone with me and to use the security bar. And, as my blog buddy, Lea Anne, says, it would be interesting to know what stories the 4 Hispanic guys are telling about the loco white woman who chased them around, yelling. That's why I'm writing one more post actually. I've had several people ask what kind of bar the police recommended. Here's a photo:
It is a Master Lock Dual-Function Security Bar. It's dual function because you can use it with a patio door too. You can find them at Amazon HERE. I got mine at Home Depot because I was there to pick out the paint for my red front door and they had them. The price was about the same but, at Amazon, you have to add shipping. The police said that it takes a battering ram to get the door open with one of these.
We all have to take care. The people coming up from the border aren't worried about committing robbery in daylight because, if they get arrested, the Federal Government has directed the local law enforcement to release them. According to reports in the Associated Press, federal documents state that over 5000 have been released in just the last few weeks. If you want, you can read about it HERE. It doesn't matter if they are convicted felons who have committed murders, robberies, etc. I know that there is some "unspoken rule" about avoiding unpleasant truths on Blogger. But it doesn't take much research to see that things have changed in our country. I never thought about something happening to me. I live in a nice neighborhood. A garage sale was going on 3 doors down from my house and lots of people were parked there. I tell ya, never in a million years.....
So stay safe. Take care. Be watchful. XOXO and cheery wave from Bev
