We live in an unsafe world.

So a married couple friend of ours had their house broken into four days ago while they were at work. The people obviously had no respect for the law as well as no remorse. Of course the neighbors saw NOTHING when it happened either. Here is a brief list of what was taken:

1. Drywall tools.

2. Microsoft XBox 360

3. Sony Playstation 3

4. Nintendo DS (Dual Screen)

Now most of what you see above can easily be lifted out of someone else's house, but wait.. there's more.. The following was ALSO taken and again keep in mind the neighbors saw NOTHING.

5. 42" Plasma HD-TV

So again, HOW does anybody miss something like that? I just don't get it. Luckily, they had insurance and all receipts from when the stuff was purchased, so they should be ok.

That was on Monday, May 5th, 2008. Fast forward to this morning.

THE FOLLOWING TAKES PLACE BETWEEN 12:00 AM AND 12:30 AM ON THE NIGHT MY WIFE AND I WERE WATCHING "BONES"

So we're both watching TV and hear this VERY loud crash two times. Both of us look at each other like "What the %^#@ was that?!!! We immediately grab the phone in case we need to dial 9-1-1 and Rox grabs both of our bb guns for some kind of protection as we don't have real guns in the house. She thought it sounded like someone was trying to open our garage door. I could have sworn it was in the house, so we investigated what the cat might have been into. Finding nothing, we
journeyed outside and checked the front and back. Finding nothing, we both attempted the garage door theory while each was in the house. That obviously wasn't it as you couldn't hear anything. Since it apparently was nothing, we continued "Bones".

When "Bones" was over, Roxanne wanted to verify something and went outside. When she did this, she asked me to stay inside. I then heard loud noises that sounded almost EXACTLY like what we had heard, immediately causing chills down my spine. She came back in and said she went to the garage door and kicked the bottom of it. That really concerned me as again, it sounded like the same noise.

It could have been the neighbors as we've already seen the moron next door back into his wife's car and cause lots of noise, so I couldn't put it past someone. I'm hoping the noise was someone else's garage door like the next door neighbor, but she definitely hit it on the head with her experiment tonight.

So like I said in a previous post:

COULD IT HAVE HAPPENED? and if so, WILL IT HAPPEN AGAIN?!

I really hope not.
