I should have posted this before the "more burglars" post.
I bought another six pack of Oettinger yesterday. There's a building site across the road from here, and the builders saw me stash the beer in the garage under the house.
This morning the dog was acting strange. Then I noticed that the garage door was hanging open. Somebody had broken in last night. I had no time to check what might be missing. Obviously nobody would take the home brew, but there's a bit of wine and all my tools.
I just slapped a spare padlock on the doors and headed off to work, where I am now.
I've just had a thought - supposing whoever broke in drank the booze and fell asleep? Now I've locked them in.
