I’m not even going to mention Ophelia. Of all the years not to get a storm. Oh well.
From Neighbor Pete—
could you help pass the word. I have about 25 sheets of plywood that have been cut to various window/door sizes for hurricane protection that I am willing to give to anyone that will come to the storeroom and pick them up. Call me on my cell phone: 281-796-2438 Pete Carrothers
HEADS UP FOLKS!! Looks like we have dirtbags cruising our waterfront. I know a lot of y’all have water toys so take care. Sorry Bud.
From Neighbor Bud—
I don’t know why the world works the way it does, but it does. I am certainly luckier than most so I shouldn’t complain. I am a blessed and lucky guy. But I want to air my feelings. If you don’t want to hear this, just skip this letter. I realize that this is a bit selfish because there are people in the world (and Texas) with real problems that make me seem spoiled. Still it is wrong to steal from someone.
Last night I drove my golf cart by my boat slip to notice that both of my brand new kayaks were gone. They were a special treat to me as I only used them once. They didn’t take my canoe because I guess it had a chain instead of a bike cable.
I bought two so that I could have a friend go kayaking with me. That was a big splurge to me. They cost me about $450 each. I am so bummed. I had them locked with a bicycle cable to a palm tree which obviously didn’t matter. This was in plain sight right on a major Island road….West Shore. I just can’t believe that this happened on the Island. I saved my money to buy them and felt like I had a FREE type of recreation that I could have anytime I wanted to get out on a nice day and paddle.
I don’t know if you have ever been robbed or ripped off but the feeling in your gut is wrenching when you realize what really just happened. I just couldn’t believe it when I saw an empty spot from where they were next to my nice park bench that I put there. Maybe it will go next.
Tomorrow is a new day and I am a lucky man in that I have my health and my family and friends. But I still don’t know why do people have to steal from each other??
I just thought that maybe beside my venting that people should know that we have to keep an eye on our possessions. I am offering a $100 reward to anyone who can find them. They are green Pelican sit on top fishing kayaks.
Thank you Lord for everything else I have and I am sorry for being so selfish. I am luckier than most.
