“Snakebit” (Another Update)

***  UPDATE – Today they found the car, … the second one stolen from us within the past 2 1/2 weeks.  This kid is good, but it will not be long before he is caught since the police know who he is.  I just hope he does not return here again and this time for me to happen to see him, because it would be very hard for me “not” to pull the trigger!

I looked up “snakebit” in the dictionary this morning, and this is what it said.
1. bitten by a snake.
2. Informal. unlucky; doomed to misfortune.
3. adj. Experiencing a period of misfortune or inability to succeed.

I posted just over two weeks ago that our car had been stolen right in front of our home on a cold morning while it was warming up.
We got the car back a few days later in good shape.
We only got the keys back to the car, but the keys to our other car and including the keys to the house and the office were missing.
We changed the locks to the house, the locks to the office.
We thought everything would be fine from there.

Well, … our other car was stolen sometime during the night, probably by the same person who stole the first one.
They captured the person who was driving the first car stolen, but it was not the person who had actually stole it.The actual thief was still out there with the keys to our second car.  The police will probably have to upgrade me in their computers from “pissed”, to “really really pissed”.
For over 20 years we have lived in this quite neighborhood with never any real bad problems, … and now this.

If I would write in this post just how I really feel this morning, most of you would have a totally different opinion of who I am compared to what you have seen or felt about me over the past 4-5 years since this blog has been up and running.
I thought that corner had been turned after receiving a good amount of work last week, … but now, …….

I just might do something today that I honestly have not done in years.
I think it’s about time to get totally wasted!!!

Damn it!

  1. Wow, Michael, I am completely stunned by this! I would not have thought about the second car either. I hope the police catch these bastards! You are more than entitled to embibe today and I, for one, do not respect you any less for it. :-) One thing for sure, hopefully your experience will educate others on what can happen. I can’t imagine this is the first time these thieves have done this. If you or the police had only suspected, they could have set up a surveillence camera and caught them in the act. Again I say it, bastards!

  2. Thanks Tracy,
    I hope that the man upstairs will forgive me, as the thoughts that have run through my mind this morning is enough to send me to hell and back 50 times over!

    I must say though, that a image that I just viewed on your site calmed me back down a bit, as it is that type of imagery that has always had a calming effect like no other.
    “Blue Fairies” is a stunning look within this wonderful world of ours, from someone who most certainly has a eye for it!

  4. i’m sorry to hear of your misfortune. i hope they’ll get this guy soon and sent him off for a long time. why people just can’t keep their fingers off other people’s property is something that keeps me irritated. I can completely understand your frame of mind. I’m sure what i would wish for a person like this to get would sent me to hell as well..

    Hope they get him quickly!

    And they say that after rain comes sunshine.. so i hope for you and yours that it will work out fine.

  6. Hey,

    Years ago I too experienced the stolen car at 5:00 AM. There was a dry spot where the car had been. Then you start thinking really stupid things like…maybe I parked down the street instead of in front of the house (like I’ve done for 20 year). To come back for a second helping is disgusting. The Bastards.

    On a better note…love your work.

  7. In such cases one thinks “when it will end?” I wish you to meet the end of this misfortune soon.

  8. That is crazy, Michael. I can’t believe you lost two cars in one month! I hope the bastard gets caught and you stay safe.
