Default Another Good Idea

Just before I moved from NH to FL I saw a program on tv about theft at the gas pumps. Most people get out of their cars and leave the drivers door open while they pump gas. Thieves are well aware of this and take advantage of it. A lot of purses disappear while a woman is pumping gas. Some thieves just get in a car and drive away. I make it a habit to lock my car while I am pumping gas. Not only is my car locked but my purse is not in plain sight. Please be careful of this. The tv program I saw showed a surveilance video of this happening.
Another thing I have seen way too many times is a woman leaving her purse in the baby seat of a grocery cart. The woman turns away at the deli or seafood counter to order and someone walks up and pushes the cart away. When they get around the corner they take the purse and run out the door. Please ladies keep your purse in your hands at the market.

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.“
---Mark Twain

I’ve heard of that before. My partner goes to pump gas, goes inside to get change and never locks the car door to the car, sometimes he leaves his iphone in the car I just know one of theses days it’s going to get stolen. It only takes a fraction of a second to hit the lock key better to be safe than sorry.

Carelessness abounds!

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

That is one thing we don't worry about in New Jersey. there is no self-serve gas in our state.

One can use the straps in the front basket section to tie your purse into the shopping cart. It won't prevent theft, but will sure slow them down.

Just be aware at all times - everywhere!

That's something you and I have in common -- neither of our states has self-service gas!

And by the by, how's our mutual friend, Phil, been treating you............? 8)
