The Empty Wallet

We think we know how it happened.

We think we know who did it.

But there's no way to be sure and no proof.

Dan opened his wallet today and, to his amazement, found it was empty. He knew there had been cash - not enough to break the bank, but enough to buy a couple tanks of gas - in it.

It's not so much the missing money as it is the sense of shock that someone would do this. It's the indignity of having your personal property invaded and rummaged through.

But even so, there are things to be thankful for. It was "only" cash that was taken. It could have been a larger sum of money. It could have been credit cards. In the grand scheme of things, it could have been a lot worse.

That´s terrible! So sorry. But I´m glad you are seeing the positive. Money can be replaced, and no one got hurt.

Wouldn't want to say, in case we are wrong . . . but for a few hints:

It's driving us "buggy."

Maybe if we take an "ant-acid" we'll feel better.

Maybe we should do a background check on the "web site."

That's all I'm saying!

The hints didn't help me, but I havean alternate theory.

Dan didn't go grocery shopping recently, did he?

He actually discovered his wallet was empty while we were at the grocery store.

Sorry my hints were too vague. But you guys can get it . . . bug, ant, web . . .

You know, here in the desert houses need on-going protection from those critters. We hire ours done. There. I said it.
