PHONE LINE CUT, ONCE AGAIN

THE HOUSE PHONE LINES, WERE CUT ONCE AGAIN, ON FRIDAY.  AS YOU MAY RECALL, THE PHONE LINES WERE CUT LAST OCTOBER...THAT IS 6 MONTHS AGO, (WHEN JIMMY ARRIVED HOME ON HIS FURLOUGH, WE FOUND THEM CUT).....I WAS SHOCKED TO FIND THE HOUSE PHONE NOT WORKING ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON...WHEN I WENT OUTSIDE, WHERE THE WIRES ARE, I FOUND THE WIRE WAS CUT...IT WAS A CLEAN CUT , DONE WUTH A WIRE CUTTER, I SUPPOSE.  THIS WAS NOT THE WORK OF A SQUIRREL, OR RABBIT, THAT WE THOUGHT MAY HAVE DONE IT LAST OCTOBER.  LUCKILY JIMMY HAS BEEN ABLE TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH ME ON MY CELL PHONE.  HE HAS GIVEN ME STRICT INSTRUCTIONS TO KEEP MY CELL PHONE ON, AND WITH ME AT ALL TIMES...EVEN IN BED.  HE HAS TOLD ME TO NOT HESITATE TO CALL 911, IF I HEAR ANYTHING SUSPICIOUS, OR IF THE DOG STARTS BARKING.  HE HAS ASKED ME TO KEEP THE FRONT AND BACK PATIO LIGHTS ON ALL NIGHT.............I MEAN, I CAN SEE THIS WAS DONE ONCE, BUT NOW TWICE IN A 6 MONTH PERIOD MAKES ONE A LITTLE SUSPICIOUS.  CUTTING PHONE LINES IS A FEDERAL OFFENSE, AND THE PERSON DOING IT, IF CAUGHT, COULD FACE GOING TO PRISON FOR IT.

JIMMY HAS BEEN CALLING ME FIRST THING IN THE MORNING, AS SOON AS HE CAN, AT 8:30 AM, TO MAKE SURE I AM OK...HE HAS CALLED ME AROUND 6 TIMES TODAY, TO MAKE SURE I AM OK..........I TOLD HIM TO PLEASE NOT SCARE ME, AND THAT PRINCE, OUR DOG, IS HERE, AND WILL ATTACK ANYONE WHO WOULD TRY ANYTHING.

FUNNY THING, IS THAT WE LIVE IN A SECURE, GATED COMMUNITY.  TOMORROW THE PHONE COMPANY WILL BE COMING, AND I WILL BE NOTIFYING THE MANAGEMENT ABOUT THIS, AS THEY HAVE TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS......SURVELLIENCE CAMERAS.....AND COVERING THE PHONE WIRES.....

WELL, TO KEEP MYSELF BUSY THIS WEEKEND, I HAVE BEEN READING THE "DA VINCI CIDE," AND HAVE BECOME A BIG FAN OF IT.....I AM VERY EXCITED ABOUT THIS BOOK!..TO ME, DAN BROWN HAS WRITTEN A FANTASTIC NOVEL!  I RECCOMEND IT TO ANYONE!  NOT ONLY IS IT A PAGE TURNER, BUT IT IS SOMETHING I BELIEVED IN OVER 30 YEARS AGO, WHEN THE LOST GOSPELS BECAME KNOWN ABOUT.....I STARTED BELIEVING IN IT, AND READING ABOUT IT IN THE EARLY 70'S....IT IS SOMETHING I ALWAYS BELIEVED IN.  ON THE OTHER HAND, IT IS CONTROVERSIAL WITHIN THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, BUT THAT IS ANOTHER ISSUE I WILL NOT GET INTO.........I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE THE MOVIE.  FOR ME, ONE OF THE BEST PARTS, IS THAT I HAVE BEEN TO SO MANY OF THE PLACES HE WRITES ABOUT, AND IT BRINGS BACK MEMORIES.......PARIS, THE LOUVRE.  I STOOD BEFORE THE MONA LISA.  BEEN TO NOTRE DAME CATHEDRAL TWICE......ALSO TO THE CATHERDRAL THAT HOLDS THE ORIGINAL GREENWHICH LINE...........BEEN TO THE PALACE OF VERSAILLES............

LET'S SAY, THAT IS A LARGE PART OF WHAT DEFINES ME.......I'VE BEEN THERE, DONE THAT, MY WHOLE LIFE.  YES, I'VE BEEN BLESSED, I WOULD SAY, TO HAVE STOOD IN THE MOST WONDERFUL MUSEUMS AND CATHEDRALS IN THE WORLD!  I HAVE SET MY EYES ON THE MOST FAMOUS TREASURES AND WORKS OF ART, IN THE WORLD........AND IT THRILLS ME TO KNOW THAT, AND REMEMBER ......  TO NAME JUST A MINISCULE FEW, I HAVE BEEN TO THE SISITNE CHAPEL TWICE, I HAVE SEEN ALL OF MICHELANGELO'S WORKS IN FLORENCE.......THE DAVID, THE PIETA.........IN SPAIN, EL GRECO, AND ALL OF HIS PAINTINGS........THE TAJ MAHAL, IN INDIA...........CATHERDRALS IN GERMANY........EL ESCORIAL.........THE ALHAMBRA........WESTMINISTER ABBEY......BUCKINGHAM PALACE........CASTLES THROUGHOUT EUROPE.......TO KISS THE BLATNEY STONE IN IRELAND..................

WHILE READING THIS BOOK, I REALIZE WHAT A MOST WONDERFUL THING IT IS TO HAVE ACTUALLY BEEN TO SO MANY OF THESE PLACES ON OUR PLANET.......THERE ARE SO MANY, I CAN'T EVEN LIST THEM HERE...........EVEN WHEN I LIVED IN NEW YORK, IN THE 70'S , 80;S AND BEGINNING OF 90'S, I WENT TO SO MANY MUSEUMS AND CHURCHES AND CATHEDRALS.  IT WAS ACTUALLY A HOBBY WITH ME..TO VISIT THOSE PLACES.....NOTHING LIKE SPENDING A DAY AT THE METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART.  EVERY WEEK, I WOULD SEEK OUT A NEW PLACE TO VISIT...A CHURCH, A CATHEDRAL...STEEPED IN ANTIQUITY AND ART AND HISTORY........I EVEN LIVED ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE LARGEST CATHEDRAL IN THE WORLD, "ST. JOHN THE DIVINE, " AND WOULD SPEND SO MANY AFTERNOONS THERE, WALKING AROUND, OR ATTENDING A CONCERT AT NIGHT........

YES, AND WHEN ANYONE MAKES ME FEEL I AMONG THE LOWEST OF THE LOW, BECAUSE MY HUSBAND COMMITTED A CRIME, AND IS IN PRISON, WELL IT IS DURING THOSE TIMES, I REMIND MYSELF OF THE PLACES I HAVE TRAVELED TO...OF THE PLACES I HAVE SEEN........AND THEN I REMEMBER JUST WHO I AM...........AND NO ONE, NOT EVEN A PRISON SYSTEM, CAN TAKE THAT AWAY FROM ME..........FRAN

My mom has had her phones lines cut many a time too.  Ya you really should put up a video camera or something to keep it from happening again.  I hope to start readin the Da Vinci Code myself soon...I can't wait to see the movie either.

Fran, I am very upset over the fact that your lines have been cut again. Please tell me that you phoned and reported this to the police? Once is  a prank (a bad one), twice, I am  worried about you and really glad that you have Prince. Since you live in a Gated Community I am wondering if soome kid is not just up to no good? Which  brings me back to you notifiying the police. If it is a kid it will  scare him, if it is something else it will serve as a warninig that the police have been notified and will be watching. By alll means report it to your management group also. Fran, I worry about you because like me you are alone and you have health problems too. Not exactly able to take someone on if you had to. But like you said you have Prince, and I have my pet Colt, lol, both watch out for us.
One last thing as this commemt is getting long. I read that book and it is excellent. Also read ANGELS AND DEMONS, also by Dan Brown, you will love it. In fact if you are not to far into the "DA VINCI CODE" you should stop and read the other book first. It was Dan Browns first one and it kind of is a lead up to things he refers to in the book you are reading now.
Well enough rambling. Take care and God bless. You and Jimmy are in my prayers as always.
                   Hugs, Cyndy, Mendota, IL.
