Here's probably one of the most random things that is going to happen to anyone on this board anytime soon:

At lunch today, I went home and picked up my van. I get beack to work and had to put something in the glove box, it was stuck closed, I "Fixed" it with a screwdriver and thought nothing more of it.

After work, I happened to glance into the back and notice that the blanket that was on the rear bench the night before was now on the jump seat behind the driver. I made a note of it and checked it out when i got home, nothing else was out of place.

Then I popped my hatch and find one of the beer bottles that I bought in Kelowna on Sunday, half empty and just sitting there, I check the cupboard where it was supposed to be, and my other beer is still there, but some of my camping provisions (cereal bars) are gone.

Ths lead to me concluding that I must have left my door unlocked and a bum decided that it was a good place to sleep, then he found my beer and was good to go. i'm not mad about anything except the beer...

huge power outage tonight down around dilworth/ enterprise. we saw a huge show of SUPER bright purple light from chapters overtop the old western star building. it was so creepy driving down by the dealerships on enterprise with no light anywhere. That was the brightest purple i've ever seen, very cool!

Keeping my eye on a 93' SHO... Seems like it would be a neat car to drive.

Side note: PYP left a battery in a ford tempo. We took it over to a ford taurus with the 3.8 and she fired right up Had a hell of a rod knock till it ran outa gas.

I went up goudie last night too, made it most of the way up in 2wd, then had to switch to 4 to get up some of the less travelled parts, fun doing 4wd drifts though, It's almost too controllable.
