Someone walked into my next door neighbours house one night, and took all of his electronic equipment, out the back slider, and they were gone.
I was right next door, doing, whatever, never heard a thing, but my door was locked.

I am not afraid, but I am 'aware', and it is no different for me to be in my house with a locked door, or unlocked door, I don't walk around in fear, I just feel more secure""

I'm with you on these points, Taloola. In Backwater Ont., we do have a drug "problem". Not as violent (so far) as in the cities, but they are out there and they do roam.

So, a locked door means your insurance company will pay for your stolen "stuff". if you're not home.

Our dog means we'll hear anyone coming in the drive or over the lawn.

My neigbour has a sign on his door saying his house is protected by (fill in the blank), 3 nights a week...........YOUR GUESS!....................another option

"our" house is protected by extreme poverty....

That works, good stragety, or, maybe not, maybe its genuine, and that's OK too.
having lots of money is highly overated, has taken me a long time to learn that.
and that isn't by having lots of it, it's because I'm wiser now, and know that material
things don't make happiness, just need 3 squares a day, a good people around you.
but, if my number gets picked, I won't turn it down. I will enjoy dolling it out to
all the happy faces and bright eyes, around the table.

reminds me of 'when' we travelled extensively down through the western u.s. and all over
from 'here to there and everywhere'. We didn't drive an expensive vehicle, and we didn't
dress in obvious touristy duds, we blended in, and looked like the locals, well, not
always, I wouldn't want to look like some I've seen, but you know what I mean, don't
'stand out' in a crowd.'

From 1972 to 1985 went to Myrtle Beach. Blend in or not Wilmington N.C. is the worst place to go through in the u.s.

That's very interesting to know, as I know nothing about that area, except what I
picture, and that is many many beautiful golf courses, one right after the other,
everything else is blank, how dumb that must seem, but, as a golfer, (should restate,
someone who likes to golf), I have read lots of brochures over the years, and i'm sure
you know, that area is famous for them.

My grandson has a 'scholarship' for golf, and he will be attending the university at
Louieville this fall, he actually chose that one, as he went there for an interview, and
instantly liked it, and the people as well, and said it is very nice rolling hills and lots of farms on the way to the golf course. Do you know much about that area?
All I know is that is where the 'Kentucky Derby' is run, the end of my knowledge.

Wilmington is a Navy town. Myrtle Beach is as you have described it, or was the last time I was there.

Wowser!! Congrats to your grandson, Taloola, and to your kids for the help they must have given him along the way..............And to gramma, of course; without whom this all would not have been possible.........

The child of a buddy went to school in the US on just such a scholarship. Wound up playing pro for a bit, earned a degree, took up golf course construction. Was going great guns the last we heard. Making money and having a good life.

Good on him!!...

Edmonton isn't that dangerous, its just a big city. Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Montreal, they all have their bad neighbourhoods, and almost any citizen in Edmonton will tell you that Mill Woods is one of our violent neighbourhoods. I dont think Edmonton is any more dangerous than any other big city in Canada.
