"THE UNPRODUCTIVE BURGLARLY"|
In December of 1973, we had quite a scary time. Our house
was burglarized! The burglary happened
on the night of a school Christmas program at Puget Sound Junior High. As
we walked in the door, someone ran out the back door.
The burglar had thrown a big rock through the back door window to get in. The rock put a mark on the beautiful kitchen cabinet door that Dad had just finished. The house was still warm and the door wide open, so we knew we had just missed, and perhaps interrupted the burglar! !

that was dropped. I seem to recall that it was a leather-covered key-chain for
