Wheel-less 1 Wheel-less 2

Came outside this morning to discover all four wheels gone.

    So sorry Sue. I can’t see stealing tires for $ 100 total ?? But I guess that beats working.
    Maybe some motion activated lights ?

      Tom might be working on a motion activated potato gun.

    You have got to be kidding! Crime is up in St. Louis or an anomaly? Sorry, Sue. Did you see my note about creating an apartment in your building to rent? Or in my 20’s I lived on the top floor of a large home in Minneapolis free of charge in exchange for cleaning the owner/family’s home. I bet you’ve thought through all this (programming) and decided you want all the space to yourselves. 😉 Chris

      Hi Chris-
      The police said this is a thing right now in the city. He doesn’t understand it because there can’t be much value for used wheels. But, criminals aren’t know for their broad intelligence. I posted a reply to your previous comment here:
      Thanks for following our adventure!

        Thanks Sue. I just figured out how your blog works in terms of messages/replying. I need a home improvement adventure and you’re it!

    So sorry this happened to you :(. I’m with Loulie, a bottle of wine makes everything better!

    Oh no! Not a good way to start off the day! Guess a set of locking lug nuts would be in order…? At least they didn’t bash out your window to steal parts inside the car… (i.e. Radio, Air Bag) Some thieves have been cutting off the catalytic converters also.. So it definitely could have been worse.. Maybe the next project after the roof would be the garage?

      Definitely could have been worse. The garage has become a priority, but I think more exterior cameras are in our future.

    When it rains, it pours? Sorry, I could not resist. Seriously, find the nearest bottle of wine and call the tow truck.

      I know if you still live here you’d be over with a bottle already!
