Saturday morning was beautiful. 
I had scheduled with friends to meet up early in the morning and hike up a local mountain.
We met at the park by the ranger's station, grabbed our water and headed on up the mountain.
It was a beautiful day for exercise and girl talk.
But, while we were doing this...

And this...

Some unscrupulous person/persons did this...

And this...

You can still see the rock they used to bust the window over on the far floorboard.
It was a bummer, to say the least, when I returned to the parking lot to see my poor Frumpmonkey Beastie had been broken into and my purse stolen.  
I normally don't leave my purse in my truck, or even take it with me when I go hiking, but this was local and I had planned to stop and pick up my dry cleaning on the way home. Lesson learned, I guess.
Not only did I have to cancel all of my cards but they got my FAVORITE PURSE!! The crazy orange one with the goofy flowers. 
Anyhow. I wish them no harm or ill will. The fact that they bought red-box videos and gasoline leads me to believe that they possibly weren't SO in need that they would make the best use of the $6 or so in my wallet. 
It is merely an observation that karma has a funny way of leveling the field when one least expects it. I hope that these individuals are able to change their lives for the better and help people instead of taking from them.
On the bright side, I no longer have to worry about cleaning out my wallet AND I was able to get a new, inexpensive, pretty one that I think will help keep me more organized!
AND--thank heavens, I had forgotten my phone at home.
So, not as terrible as things could have been.  No one was hurt and although there is a certain amount of expense involved to do repairs and recover licenses, etc., things could have been much much worse.
Counting my blessings...
Big Hugs,
