ran into a person at Dominick's today who had three bikes stolen from back yard... lock cut. Time to start putting everything away, every night. Makes me long for winter again.

You missed the two bikes that were stolen, after the cable lock had been cut, in front of my house, 600 block of S. Harvey. The thief left the lacrosse goal and the hockey goal... those two bikes were number 3 & 4 of the bikes stolen from my property.
