Dear Friends and Family:
I think we will be signing another year's lease for our apartment. It's too hard to give up the excitement tinged with danger here. It's like living in Alfred Hitchcock's movie, "Rear Window." The latest crime solved involved package theft. When our third package went missing from the mail area, the office advised us to call the police because other neighbors also had missing packages, with some items found in a pawn shop. As the bulletproof vested policeman questioned Jim in our dining room, I wondered what he thought as Jim detailed the theft of his 6-pack of underwear. Though not likely to be found in a pawn shop, Jim wanted to delay ordering more, thinking the police might be able to retrieve it. Annoyed when I said he really wouldn't want it back, he complained, “But it’s very special underwear!” Feeling a little fearful we were pressing charges against the thief, the policeman assured me we wouldn’t have to go into witness protection. I've attached a photo of Jim spying on the guy who got caught. Don't you love his spyglass?
