TWTWTW 2007:39 A local heist

This week a few local juveniles heisted the car of a Guy at work doing his job. The Guy called the PRPD who quickly located the car within the city limits. Missing from the Guy's car were: 1) the car keys 2) the Guy's cell phone 3) the Guy's knife 4) the Guy's binoculars 5) the Guy's lunch. The Guy calls his cell phone company to discover someobody has been making calls on his cell phone - to The Big Apple - of all places. The Guy gets a new phone. The cell company ports the old number to the new phone. Pretty soon the Guy gets a call - with caller id - from a young lady who doesn't recognize the Guy's voice and asks "Can I talk to ...........?"

The robbers should have taken heed of Mrs.Sundberg's Number 6:

1. You can ask until the cows come home what it is you're here for, and no one — not God, not your mother, and not a bunch of tea leaves — is going to tell you. You've got to get going and figure it out.

2. Life is pretty much unfair if you choose to look at it that way. So choose otherwise.

3. You're basically on your own. If you don't like it that way, find some company.

4. There really is nothing to be afraid of. Seems to me if you can imagine it, you can handle it. And what you can't imagine, well, no point in giving it much attention. Save your energy. You're going to be surprised sooner or later.

5. Everything you own should have a purpose or meaning. If it doesn't, give it to someone for whom it will have purpose or meaning. Or recycle it. Or have a bonfire.

6. When in doubt, ask yourself if what you're about to do makes sense. If it doesn't, don't do it. If it does, double-check with what your gut is telling you. Because your gut is almost always right.

7. Be exactly who you are. Because you can't do your life right if you aren't you. Take my word for it.

I hope Guy gets his binoculars, knife, and lunch back. This is really too bad, not good at all. It makes me think that some folks from the Cities and the Big Apple have made there way to Pelican to take advantage of the Guy at work.

Good luck PRPD and Guy. Thanks for keeping us updated, 56572 Blog Guy.

Everyone should watch their back.

The last I had heard, PRPD had found those responsible.
