Rochester Personified #10:

“My family has been on this block since the late 30’s early 40’s. Now we have a problem in this neighborhood with people coming in and stealing stuff. I’ve lost a lot of ornaments and bird baths and other stuff from my garden. Three weeks ago, someone broke into my greenhouse took my concrete frog and threw it through my back window. Next thing I know, there was a guy trying to get in the side kitchen window. I yelled at him and got my gun and chased him but how far can I chase him? I called RPD and they were here within 5 minutes but he was long gone. Just before that, someone tried to steal my dragon statue here. It was too heavy for him so I saw him just push it down and broke the wing right off. I only had it for two days. Every Halloween I have to sit out here so they don’t come slice my screens, you know, for a prank. It’s a rough neighborhood.”
