Hi Fatwa- good to see Sulla and to read the family updates -- and hope that Mrs Paddy got home safely.

Mrs Sven returned from a mid-west business trip the other night and was robbed at LAX while waiting for a shuttle. She wasn’t hurt and only lost her wallet with cash and credit cards, so it could have been a lot worse, but still sucko.

I’m glad Mrs. Sven is okay, but what a horrible experience to go through! I’m really surprised, given the number of people and law enforcement in the area, that it happened. Just, wow.

Thanks, guys -- she’s OK, just mightily pissed. Airport police showed up two hours later, and the cameras in that area of the airport were down so no video. And the cops attitude, it being LA and all, were so what do you want us to do?

Time to get serious about moving out of here.

Happy Caturday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Sven, and Mac!

Mrs. Paddy arrived a little early, after an uneventful couple of flights. It’s good to have her home again. Now Teh Younger and I are going to install a light fixture in his bedroom ceiling. We’ve got to re-route the electrical from a switched outlet to a ceiling box that we’re putting in.

Cool on the safe arrivals. Careful up in the attic, Paddy.

Hey, Sven, Mac and Paddy!

Pissed-off to read about Mrs. Sven getting robbed at LAX. Glad she’s okay, aside from her wallet being taken but criminy! Haven’t flown in or out of that place in a lot of years, but it used to be crawling with aggressive, armed goonyun donut-swillers.

Hope they catch the rat bastard and he resists…

Glad Mrs. O’ is safely home, too. Hope that the electrical work doesn’t require an additional trip to Home Labyrinth.

Yes, it did (actually there’s an OSH nearby that is very convenient, but they’re going out of business). I needed an additional cable clamp and more wire nuts. Now it’s too hot to go back up in the crawl space to finish the job (no cable has been cut yet, so power is still on to everything) and Teh Younger has to go off to work.

Wasn’t Home Labyrinth a movie with David Bowie?

Bummer, Paddy.

Airport police showed up two hours later, and the cameras in that area of the airport were down so no video.

Fark me…that’s completely unacceptable. Lazy, entitled yoonyun ‘tards with guns and immunity.

And the cops attitude, it being LA and all, were so what do you want us to do?

Uh, maybe get the the damned cameras fixed, for a start? (Because expecting them to do their jobs is pretty over-the-top.)
