    Here they're a hot commodity because of the cost of renewal, depending on the value and age of the car. (Mine is a 5-year-old economy car, and the renewal was in the ballpark of $130.)

    Did that! It's a deterrent to someone looking to save the cost of renewal -- for awhile, at least, because sooner or later it'll turn up in the DMV's files that a car hasn't been renewed. But if someone's just being a d*** and doing it for the annoyance factor, oh well.

But within the past two weeks, we have had graffiti sprayed on the brick wall across from our house and at the front of our neighborhood, a house one street over was broken into, two cars have been broken into, exercise equipment was stolen out of a garage, and just yesterday a lady was unloading groceries out of her car and left her purse in the front seat while she took one load in, and when she came back out for the second load her purse had been stolen.
    See? I told ya it was the cops Ask him to leave and see if the crime wave ends...if you dare...

    I'm feeling very BLUE. It's been cold, snowy, rainy, dreary, cloudy, and I'm generally unhappy. Thank goodness I have my dear kitties to cheer me up. I'm having trouble seeing a happy future these days. I hate feeling this way.

    Thank you guys! I'm seeing my Dr. tomorrow. May be I need a boost in my meds or something. I have a lot on my mind and it's difficult to keep positive when there's no cure for what ails me. Literally. =^.^=

    Sorry to hear you're feeling blue, MissKitty. I hope you get your meds worked out or whatever you need to feel better. Here's a hug from me too.

    Cats are good company for times like these.
