TC that is so strange because C-Sis's house was also broken into about a week before the cruise. She also wasn't home at the time. She got an alarm system installed before she left for the cruise. I also stopped by her house and checked on things. I'm glad you weren't home and that the dogs were okay. The stuff they took can be replaced. I'm sorry to hear the you got robbed. We were thinking of getting an alarm system also.
