Earlier today I drove my 64 over to Lowes to pick up a new American flag because my old one took a beating during some of Isaac's gusts and tore. Being that it was at least 90 and I parked right in front I left the windows down. I was in a hurry so I left a leather toolbag on the seat. When I came back no more than 5 minutes later the bag was gone. No one was close to the car even though it usually attracts attention when I park it somewhere.
The toolbag was old and worn..no biggie..but inside was a Starret vernier caliper ( not cheap ), a couple of lock picks, a small screwdriver that I use to make endless adjustments to my carburetor, and my brandy new stickers that Sean(69SS396) just mailed me from the Nederlands Camino meeting. They were collectof items. Chances are the s***bag that stole them threw them away. Nothing steams me more than being ripped off or cheated.
I have myself to blame. The vernier was my late father's and cannot be replaced.
Man, do I hate people who steal. Word to the wise.(wiser than I)
