Farty's Fortunes

Keep Your Shed Secure

Those of you not on Twitter may not have been aware that Farty Towers was burgled over the weekend, hence the not-keeping-up-with NaBloPoMo. Sorry.

Yes, they caught him and no, it was too late, he'd already sold our stuff. Jewellery, camera, ice axe (really), baby clothes (WTF?), booze. Weird thing was he'd picked up and moved, unopened, a bag labelled "Barclays Diamonds" containing LMF and DB's wedding rings. Those are now in a bank vault.

Anyway, the Crime Prevention Officer was here today and as part of his security advice, mentioned that garden forks and that are handy tools for breaking into a house, so you need to keep your shed secure too.

On the leaflet he left with us it says, "Recommend hostile/aggressive plants around perimeter fences and boundary walls".

What do you reckon?

That should do it... can they not track down who the guy sold your stuff to and nick them for receiving stolen goods?

Mr Farty said...

#Debi - That's exactly what the police are trying to do. Just keeping my fingers crossed in the meantime.

Poison Ivy.

sneak it in between the real ivy covering the walls of Chateau Farty.

Oh, and Raspberries. Raspberries are tasty - and they have GINORMOUS thorns.

Keeping fingers crossed you get your stuff back. Did they take your cows calendar?

Unfortunately, the burglar would have to actually fall into a pitcher plant. Perhaps you need Imariecorva carnivorae (around 3 minutes in). That might work.

Audrey II would be best, though.

I'm sorry you have to go through this. It sucks...

I'm so sorry, that's a horrible thing to have happened.

Liz said...

Really sorry to hear about this, Farty.

Glad to know they've caught the culprit.

Sew - The old lady next door used to have thistles under her windows, that's what you see in the background image of this blog. We may follow suit.
We never had any cows calendars, those were for competition prizes.

Laurie - Those are meant to be Triffids in the photo. But I like your fly, er, mantrap too.

Z - It's very draining emotionally, both of us keep having to ask what day it is.

What day is it?

Liz - Wish I'd caught him first. The police said, "He's going straight back to jail", which is a bit of a giveaway.
