    but not the Masi

    Garage was broken into last night. PAB made off with power tools, lawn equipment, and the Duchesses bike. Funny, while the Masi was supremely available and unlocked, it was left behind. Easily the most valuable item in the garage was left untouched. They probably took one look and said, who the hell would want to ride that thing?

    That's what you get for using "******" as a pejorative.

    Mayo - sorry to hear that. Odd that they left the Masi though considering how nice it is, especially in person. Oh well...

    Kick him while he's down huh? Noone deserves to have their space violated. Get over it.

    *edit: looks like gh-ap's post was deleted.

    BTW, stake out the garage now, they might come back for the Masi.

    Relax, it was a good natured ribbing. Thus the winky. Man, people are wound tighter than a clock around here.

    Yeah it sucks. I've had plenty of stuff ripped of and had my apartment burgled over the holidays. Doesn't mean I can't laugh about it. Life's too short to be that serious.

    They said the same thing back in Montana. Also, you should fire a shot into the ceiling after you shoot them so you can say you fired a warning shot.

    Mayo- that sucks. I hope the cops are able to find your stuff, but I'm kind of doubting it....

    Cool it before this thread gets moved to "redneck justice" forums at the NRA website.I hate bicycle thieves, but would probably think twice..........maybe even three times before killing a human being over a (pardon me) worldly posession such as a bike. Thanks anyways for the tricks 'n' tips on how to commit murder.Gross.

    THey must not have CSI cops in Texas, if they did they would see the blood trail, maybe the Texas Police can't see the blood because thier sunglasses are to dark.
