Security Shattered!

“Opportunity makes a thief,”
              Francis Bacon

Hello everyone it is 3am and I am wide-awake. I have photo Friday below this post but I had to get this off my chest.
 2 am Friday I awake with My Hero jumping out of bed yelling. We hear the barn gate smashing. He runs to the door and yells at these (men?) in our barnyard. The one runs, the other a little slower My Hero stops. Thank goodness for a weak metal gate, it is lying on the ground. Apparently he was looking for a haunted house I guess that was the best story he could come up with.
 I am on the phone to the police. I am terrified; My Hero is out there confronting these drinking men. I have no idea what is going on as the phone is in the kitchen. There was a cordless beside my bed I have no idea why I did not grab it. I was scared. My Hero gets the guy into our living room yes that is very weird. He was drinking so I guess MY Hero was not to worried about this maybe twenty something person. I am still on the line with the police. Nice kid I know that is weird for me to say about a thief. (I feel sorry for his parents).His friends deserted him and he was protecting their identity, so nice dumb kid. 
 The police came (very quickly) took him away in handcuffs, took our statements, and then went to our neighbours to check for this missing man, who went running for a parked car that had taken off. I am not sure if they got him so I am terrified he will be back. We are surrounded by high hay fields. Could he be just lying in this grass?
 I cannot sleep I am so afraid the other ones were going to come back. 
 My instincts were right as soon as the police were gone a very loud car turns around in our driveway it is 3:30 I call the police back. I have no idea what is going on now. I just know I will not sleep tonight, or many nights after. My security has been shattered. I am still shaking. Thanks to a car load of drunken (men?).
 It is 4:02.



  1. thats scarey! we have weird happenings sometimes. and i dont blame you on the sleeping, i wouldnt either.

  2. Oh my! That is scary. Years ago we woke up one morning realising somebody had broken into our house the night before and stole some stuff while we were sleeping - so scary and it really messes up your sleeping. Big time.

    I pray that soon you will feel safe again!

  3. I'm so sorry this happened, B. I'm sure you feel violated, to say the least. Keep the phone close today -- but I don't think you'll be seeing them again. Big hugs.

  4. Your hero sounds like a cool- headed guy. I sleep with a gun at arm's length. Someone breaks in, I will hear it and start poppin'. Let the cops figure it out later.

    BTW---you're lucky the cops showed up quickly. They'll undoubtedly find out who the other perps were. I don't think you'll have any more trouble, but if you don't own a gun and know how to use it, please get one and learn.

    Blessings---now, get some sleep!

  5. Ahhh so scary! Good thing your man has a cool head. Mine sleeps with a pistol hanging over the post at the head of our bed and may not have been so cool headed. I'm so sorry and know about feeling violated. Years ago someone broke into our house (where I grew up) through my parents bedroom window. There was pocket change on the floor and an impression on the bed where they sat as they went through the dresser drawers! We felt weird for a long time. BUT if the police got one they will probably get the others. Alcohol makes people very brave sometimes! Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers. Blessings.

  6. OMG! I am so sorry for you! That would have scared the &%#$ out of me. Then I would have turned into a beast and tried to hurt this kid any way possible. I would have been taken away! You will have to live past this. They were just looking for a good time. But if they went to the right house, it would have been their last house. So they were the lucky ones!

  7. Oh my goodness! I'm so sorry this happened to you. I can only imagine how scary it is. I'll be thinking of you until you post again.

  8. I'm so sorry for your scare but I am thankful that neither of you were hurt. Also that your Hero didn't hurt the kid. I don't really know the situation but it sounds like a group of kids out drinking and being stupid. Hopefully they will all be caught and encouraged to straighten up before something more serious happens.

  9. So sorry this happened to you! People who are not in their right minds are capable of doing anything. I'm glad you suffered nothing worse!

    Blessings to you, and I pray that those who invaded your property and destroyed your sense of security will soon be brought to justice.

  10. Sorry you went through that- very scary.
    We felt like that when the guy dumped the stolen car right behind us on the 401 but it was broad daylight and we have dogs.

    I agree with Patti Bee- stupid kids- scare the heck out of you but guns not needed!

  11. So sorry this happened to you. I do doubt they will return to your place, even though I am sure that statement doesn't help in the least.

  12. How scary Buttons. This is one of my worst fears and still don't know what I would do. I'm glad everything and everybody is ok. Big hug,

  13. i hate hearing this!!! a night-time robbery is very bold! i'm sure the alcohol had something to do with that, but still, i hate that your sense of security is shattered...

  14. Oh! My HEAVENS! I hope that you write how all of this turned out! We were robbed last year so understand the feelings!

    I hope all is safe!


  15. morals and value's where have they gone??

    sad sorry, for all involved...

    do you have a way to better secure your land from intruders?? maybe a watch dog.....

  16. *sad story, for all involved

    whoooops, gotta proof read

  17. Thats awful! People are so brasen - I remember on the farm in NY growing up we didn't even lock our doors at night and we could leave equipment in fields from one day to the next - Not anymore. Some friends of ours had a really nice hay trailer stolen - they just knocked the chain over hooked it up and drove off with it. HUGS to you.

  18. Wants to know, What happened to Honesty, Integrity, and the Morals that used to be taught to us all?

  19. Oh my goodness...

    I'm praying right now for your security to be restored! Living in town we've had episodes and it does shake you up...

    So sorry, Debbie

  20. How sad is that! I'm sure the police will find out who was involved and track them down. Invasion! Do you have a dog?

  21. Dear B* Oh this is terrible, if I were in your place,me too will be so scared and upset hopefully you'll be able to get over with this soon. I'll pray to God specially for you asking to protect you and your familly from any harm...
    please take care..

  22. Oh! My! my heart was beating a hundred miles an hour while reading this post. You sound as if you kept a fairly cool head and Hero handled the whole situaton well. PTL you both are okay and I pray they find the other man involved.

    Drunks are useless as teats on a boar pig but at least the young man was not combative like some tend to become.

    Take care and try not to worry, I know easier said than done*wink*

    Blessings and HUGS,

  23. Your hero is a VERY brave man!! So sorry this happened to you guys!

  24. Oh wow! that is pretty weird!

    I was gonna leave you a funny comment about baking pies (you and me are on the same page as far as "i'm sorry" pie's go.

    But now i'm all worried for you!
    I really hope they don't come back!

  25. Oh Buttons, you must have been terrified. Thank God your Hero was home. It would be another story in my case with Petal away...I'd be the one out there having to defend my property. In this country guns are illegal so I just have a large shifting spanner nearby....and boy can I swing it!! Maa.

  26. Oh no. I am so sorry. That sounds awfully frightening. I am thankful you are both okay and pray God will give you peace.

  27. What a frightening thing to happen! The farm dogs alert me to what is happening and I know the different barks. No guns here in Australia but I take the whip with me and my dog if I have to investigate. I've cracked the whip before and made some intruder bolt as they thought it was a gun!

  28. Thank you everyone for your comments.All is well here I will post another blog soon. Things came about and the story gets weird but all is well. My Hero is My Hero he would never use a gun in a situation like that. Things worked out he has good instincts, and so do I. "Nice kid" remember? Will update when I get a chance this weekend. B

  29. B, Just reading your comment above and glad to hear all is well now. It IS scary, I know. Our neighbour was murdered over the Christmas holidays. Every little thing makes my heart race and I'm thankful every time Callie barks, she protects us well.

    Take care,

  30. Dear Buttons, what a horrible unsettling experience.
    Glad to read your latest comment that all is well.
    Now you can both get back to reclaiming your feeling of "home".xx
