|SUNSET AT GILBERT RAY CAMPGROUND|
Well, I am back on the web as my internet “hotspot” arrived today, and my spouse has let me use her computer! So, if you might be thinking “what happened here” (or even if you are not), there is a sad story. A week ago we traveled to the Phoenix airport to pick up my visiting daughter and her husband. On the way home we stopped at a large truck stop in south Phoenix where three of us went in to purchase some food. My spouse stayed by the vehicle with the dog. She had just circled the pickup when a “perp” (I learned that word from TV) came up along her blind site, got into our vehicle, grabbed her purse and my laptop, and zipped away in a car picking “him” up. Just like that we had lost a thousand dollars worth of “stuff” and my spouse’s identity. You can just imagine the visits to the bank, telephone company, hotspot company, etc. Next will be the Drivers License Bureau, a key cutting company, eyeglass company, etc.
The "good thing", if there is such, is that my wife was not injured--I am very thankful. We can replace the “stuff”, but at a cost, but can never replace ~250 photos I had not copied onto an external drive nor about four completed written articles. But perhaps most importantly, I am not certain that my trust in people, especially strangers, will ever return.
