Investment opportunity

If you are like the two of us. . .

you are always keen on good ideas.

Several years ago a good friend of ours had his van stolen right from under his bedroom window.

We were aghast. . .the nerve. . .thievery run amuck.

My beloved being the friend he is tossed and turned at night. . .

wondering how he could help his friend avoid having the thievery repeat itself.


During his sleepless night he devised a plan to begin mass production of the...

Nighthawk Alarm System.

He went to town and purchased a few necessary items for the first ever. . .

Nighthawk Alarm System.

Needing to keep the costs down. . .

he scrounged through his fishing tackle box and borrowed a few items from it.

I did a small bit of sewing for the project myself.

An old tie was shortened and Velcro was attached to make for easy evening alarm setting. .

and easy morning de-arming.

If you look up at Exhibit A. . .

you will see the self explanatory instruction manual that he inserted into the little blue box.

The beauty of this system is that you can take it anywhere.

If there is one thing that a good friend will do.. .

he'll take good care of his gifts. . .

so that when re-gifting is appropriate. .

it's ready to go.

If this investment opportunity appeals to you .. .

please leave a comment. . .I am attempting to raise some money today.

OH. .

The insurance lady yesterday called the claim on our stolen and since recovered pickup truck . . has been . . . . accepted.

(Think about the commercial where the two guys keep getting older and older while waiting for the claim to be . . .denied. . . .we were beginning to watch our wrinkles develop as well).

Fantastic.

OH. . and another thing. . .It's going to be a scorcher ☼..

It's supposed to hit 34ยบ today.

Grandgirlie and I are going to spend the day in the wading pool. . . ..

50¢ at the gate and you can join us.

(We're earning money for the icecream truck)

All for now..

  1. Haha...that's great!

    It's sad that recent events have us all thinking along the same lines - how to protect our loved ones and our possessions.

    Enjoy the pool...and the ice cream!

  2. This is very clever! Oh the uniqueness. Might be hard to mass produce and going on the road to promote may take away from KM time. Pool and ice cream time... that's what summer is about!

  3. What a "great" gift and a lot of fun at the same time. But you are right...often the greatest ideas are born out of strife.

    Have fun with the grandgirlie today...water and ice-cream sound perfect.

  10. We had a good laugh about this one...I just had to share your clever concept! And thanks for sharing the 'blueprint'...with no patent...because who knows when we may need to make a copykat kit.

    Stay cool!

  13. Too bad you dind't get that earlier. If the owner knew when the thief would come, he woud be prepared, right?
    the wading pool sound like a good idea. I might have to get one too.
    They are probably sold out.
