    Today, while my 15 and 13 year old daughters were home alone,two men knocked on the door and then stole our lawnmower. Thank You God for keeping my children safe. My quick thinking girls immediately called me and I alerted the Sheriff's dept. The caught the theives less than 20 minutes later. Praise God!! What they did not bank on was that as a Probation Officer,we had discussed what they should do in this situation and they did exactly right.

    Thanks guys. School starts next week,but I'm not leaving them home alone any more this Summer.Lucky the dog was inside barking her hed off. I'm sure they decided it wasn't worth it to battle the dog.
