A New Level of Hell

For those literary minded bloggers or anyone who has heard the saying, "Seventh Circle or Level of Hell" here is a nice link to an explanation of
Dante's Inferno from which that saying proceeds.
We have entered into a new level of Hell. If you look, you will see Limbo is actually a pretty nice part of Hell, comparatively. I should have enjoyed it more while I was there. How was I supposed to know it was going to get worse?
We have been robbed. We certainly made it easy for the thieves to make off with our stuff. But in our defense, we live in Utah. We do not live downtown in any four of the larger cities in Utah. (For you edification, those are Salt Lake City, Ogden, Provo and St. George) Utah is a small place, we only have about 2 million people in the entire state! We live in a wee suburb, fairly far from any unsavory downtown areas. We have no home robberies in our neighborhood. Sometimes things will get stolen out of front yards or cars, but that is about it. We have never had anything stolen out of our cars. Until last night. Missing: two cell phones, one from Bald Man's van, one from mine. One cd player from Bald Man's van. And no we don't usually lock our vans, no need really. Gosh dang it. My phone would not have been in my van, but I can't find the charger for it, so I had to use the car charger. I had to get a new phone, because mine old phone met up with a untimely demise. That is a whole 'nother story.
On friday, Pea was at our house, and playing in her wading pool, having a good ole time. I went inside and grabbed a handful of toys to play with in the pool. I tossed them in. Woe is me, my phone, forgotten by myself, was also in my hand. It did not like being thrown into the pool. My phone, to punish me for the abuse it received, will no longer speak to me. Two phones in 3 days. Pretty talented huh?
Come around often, who knows what other levels of Hell we are going to get to explore? Perhaps we shall be able to add some postscripts to Dante's Inferno. Do you think I could get a job as a travel writer to Hell?

I wouldn't expect it in Utah either.

My car was broken into twice in the city at which point it seemed simpler to leave it unlocked and save replacing the glass.

One stereo stolen here. I'd left it open long enough to run into the house in braod daylight. Couldn't have been gone 10 minutes.

I'm sorry. Hell seems to be everywhere these days.

Jo, so sorry to hear about your recent bad happenings :( I do hope things start to clear up and things aren't serious with JJ. It stinks to be robbed from--such a horrible feeling :(
