They stole my Blogoversary!

Yesterday was the first anniversary of this blog.
My first post 'the portrait of Disappointment' was published on August 11, 2008.
Yesterday, I had planned to write a celebratory post- something sweet and positive.
Alas my plans came crashing down because of one very unpleasant event.
Yesterday afternoon, a few minutes past 1pm , I received a call from my wife that our home had been broken into. Yap! The thieving gang had visited again in our absence.
I had to leave the office driving like crazy to go and check on the what the gang had wrought!
Thank God they only managed to break two glass windows of the guest bedroom. They could not lay their cursed hands on anything in the house.
A lady staying in the neighbouring house saw the two-man team hard at work and shouted at them from across the wall and phoned the police. The police responded pretty fast. At least three police cars were there within five minutes of being contacted.
The security buzzer/alarm went off and the security company, ADT, was also on the property almost at the same time.
By the time I reached home the place was swarming with police officers and security guards.
The gang though had long bolted into thin air.
So that is how two sons of belial stole my first blogoversary.
I am pissed off like you won't believe.

So sorry to hear that. At least they didn't get anything. Happy Anniversary! Continue to bless us with your beautiful writings!

Sorry oh! How annoying. Good thing they didn't get away with any of your possessions, still, I don't think they realise the huge violation of privacy it is, whether or not anything is taken.

On top of it their attempted theft affects us readers as I'm sure we'd have enjoyed the planned blogoversary post!

Nana Yaw Asiedu said...

No, my friend, they did not take away your blog anniversary. It is still there. Please put up a late post. We'll still love reading it.

I'm happy the burglars failed.

Thanks Kwegyirba.
The situation of crime in this part of the world is really unacceptance.
Thanks for your encouragement.

Yes Maya Mame.
The sense of violation is incredible. I am praying that one way or the other they change their ways, because this certainly is not the right way for them to live their lives.
Thanks Maya Mame for your positive sentiments.

posekyere said...

Yes RocNaija.
The alarm system did work and that I suppose is the good news.
Thanks my friend

Thanks KFC.
The thoughts of anyone getting hurt in a robbery at my home is a scary prospect.

posekyere said...

Thanks NY for being a friend indeed.
Bless you.

Dunno what my comment would do, but I'll write it anyway! Sorry about that! Thank God those pundits did not get to steal anything. Thank God also for quick response from the police, and thank God for inquisitive neighbours. Anyway you can do a late post, we are waiting.

too bad!

but they surely could not take away your blogspirit!

posekyere said...

Thanks Nii Saki.
Yes. Lots of thanks for the way everybody and evrything came together to block the plans of the criminals.
I am really grateful.
I will try to finish the belated post pretty soon.

Thanks Nov.
Indeed. A life built on stealing from others is so pathetic.
I hope they are caught before they graduate into a much more dangerous gang.
And yes life continues. The blog continues.
Bless you, my friend
