Updates

We were talking to one of our neighbours a little while ago while out doing yard work.  She told us that she had three tires slashed the same night we had ours done and pointed out all the houses around us and told us how many tires they had slashed.  We were lucky to get just one!  Everyone is reporting it to the police who told our neighbour that pretty well every car that was parked in the back lanes, even in driveways, in a three block radius of the hospital had their tires slashed the other night.  They are investigating and suspects are already in mind.  Sure hope they catch them - renters who were evicted and wanted to vent!  This is usually a very quiet neighbourhood.

And on the home front, our Anson took off again yesterday and was missing for over an hour.  He climbed through a window to get out this time.  Rob called the police right away to alert them.  Anson was picked up by a firetruck on another busy street (Baseline Rd.) quite a distance from home.  So now, as well as the new locks on doors, Rob is putting removable padlocked bars on his windows.  He doesn't want Anson to feel like he's in prison but he doesn't want him to get lost or hurt either.  We're thinking that these adventures he's having are an extension of the Robin Hood camp he and his family went to in the mountains just over a week ago.  It's a camp for special needs kids and their families and he was free there to run around and go hiking in the mountains and swimming with his family.  It must have been hard for him to come home and not have that freedom any more.  We're hoping it's just a phase and he'll be over it soon.  In the meantime, vigilance is the keyword.

I hope they find the slashers. Poor Anson is a bit confused and anxious right now. I hope things settle down.

Hi Pat. I also hope that things settle down with Anson. It's a bit of a worry, isn't it? I also hope that they catch the phantom tyre slashers!! Let's hope you don't get any further problems in that area! Oh! I did give Canada a shout out - so sorry I forgot about you!!

Poor Anson, it must be difficult for hime to settle back after his holiday camp.

I hope that things settle for your family.

I hope that the tire slasher is caught. How terrible that was for everyone. I have a special needs granddaughter and I can relate. It keeps my son and his wife on their toes too. It is not an easy job being alert to their every move at all. Glad all ended well though. What a scare. Hope your Monday is a wonderful one.

Hoping they catch the tire slashers soon before it happens to you again!
There should be something that we can put on our special needs kids to track them! Has to be something!
