Lights Out!

We live in a strange world indeed!

A little past 4:00 a.m. today, my german shepherd-collie started charging the front door, barking. I didn't think much of it because that's around the time the Saturday morning paper arrives. She goes ape every Saturday morning.

All of a sudden, the porch light goes out. I'm thinking to myself, "Hope that doesn't startle the paperboy."

After I calm down the dog, I open the front door to reach down to get the newspaper out of the bin we keep on the front porch. There was no paper, only the cover for the porch light. Startled, I look up over my left shoulder to discover someone has stolen the light bulb!!

Maybe it was merely a teenage prank. Still, it's kind of unnerving to think someone was standing on my front porch unscrewing a light bulb...for what reason? What's going on, here?

Worst of all, it was one of those more expensive fluorescent bulbs. We bought a whole slew of 'em to do our part to reduce energy usage.

Needless to say, I screwed another bulb into the socket -- a regular incandescent one for now.
