I'm Just Here to Help

I'm not entirely sure what to do with these tidbits from the Log Cabin Democrat's Police Beat, but I'm unable to keep them to myself.
"Residential burglary at [deleted] Highway 89 South (about a mile northeast of Mayflower). Victim reported on Thursday that someone had broken into a residence and stolen a water hose and water hose reel, a Marlboro bag, a box with 500 magazines in it, some camping supplies and some iodine."

Sounds like someone's on the lam. Because it creeps me clean out to think otherwise, I'm going to assume that box held back issues of Field and Stream. Regardless, that's one heavy box to tote around and I'm surprised the thief didn't take a little Bengay with that iodine.

And this typographical house-guest mystery:
"Theft of property at [deleted]block of South Boulevard. Victim reported that at some point between 11 p.m. Sunday and 9:30 a.m. Monday, as the victim slept, someone stole an ACER computer. The victim told police that a guest known to her only as “E” had stayed at the apartment on that night, and was gone before she woke the next morning. The letter “U” was reported to be missing from the computer’s keyboard."
The point is, anyone looking for NaNoWriMo material need look no further than this fascinating link. God bless the Log Cabin Democrat and all who scribble there.

I just shake my head.

your banner alone is entertaining.
Why, thank you. I've been away for some time and thought I might spiff up a little.
I love old line drawings and photographs -- I used to collect books of them to use in everything.
Fantastic. Thank you for the introduction to this amazing world. xx A
