JAN 6, 22 .. WELCOME HOME BLACK BEAUTY .. SO VERY NICE TO HAVE YOU BACK

As those of you who follow us here on blogspot, our GMC Suburban (that we fondly call Black Beauty) was stolen while parked outside of our motel room here in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, during the night of December 23-24. The local police determined (based on our motel's surveillance cameras that are not monitored on a regular basis) he was actually stolen 'around' 11:25pm December 23rd. We discovered he was gone about 1:10am when I looked out of our motel room door to see if was raining outside. 

I fairly screamed : "Patti !! Black Beauty has been stolen !!"

What a shock that discovery was !!

Again, if you have been following along here with us on blogspot, you know (click onto the below link) that Black Beauty was recovered in Nevada by law enforcement teams in the states of Arizona and Nevada.

We traveled North to Laughlin, Nevada, on December the 30th to retrieve him. 

As I write these words, Black Beauty seems to be absolutely none-the-worse for his adventure. Having driven him around 100 miles so far, he seems to be running just fine. I tried to get him into a local dealership here in Lake Havasu City to get checked out but was told the earliest appointment I could get was February the 1st. We will be down in Phoenix at that time.

I was asked (speaking by telephone to the towing company in Laughlin, Nevada) .. 

"Did you have a lot of stuff in your truck?" I replied that "Yes we did!"

We expected to find Black Beauty full of our stuff. Not the case at all. He was (say 90%) full of the criminal's stuff.

WELCOME HOME BLACK BEAUTY .. 

SO VERY NICE  TO HAVE YOU BACK




You can see by the scratches on his side in the below photo, that Black Beauty may have done some off-road traveling.


On Saturday, Janary the 1st, Happy New Year 2022 Captain, I faced up to the task of sorting through Black Beauty and the mess inside of him.

Are you now ready to see inside Black Beauty. Are you ready to see A MESS of stuff, 90% of which belonged to the criminal!

THE INTERIOR MESS .. From the rear looking inside.





THE INTERIOR MESS .. The front seat area. Notice if you will, a small, very VERY loveable, happy little squirrel that has come to live with us!


Several closeup photos of our new pet squirrel.





Notice if you will, our little pet squirrel came with a bag of hard candies.



I mean you really need a little sense of humor over this incredible mess that happened upon us!

THE INTERIOR MESS .. Behind the front seat area.



My strategy. One single piece at a time, I removed each item and set them down on the pavement around Black Beauty or set our belongings that were not stolen beside our motel room door area.

THE BELONGINGS OF THE CRIMINAL




"Hey Motorcycle Man! Hey Dog! Why didn't you steal a bike!"

"Can't you see? Not enough room for my stuff on a bike!"



Can you believe this? Maybe our criminal friend cuts his own hair!

Well Hello Squirrel Nutkin! For the time being, you are with his stuff. But not for long!



His Clothes.. 

In a bag..


His Clothes..

Out of the bag onto the street..



OUR BELONGINS..

No! He did not steal or trash 100% of our items. 

Below are photos of our items (maybe 10%) that we got back. Go Figure huh?

We have got to say that some of the below items we were extremely happy to have returned. My sit-down three legged cane for one! My red suitcase. Patti lost hers.





BEFORE I began the process of clearing out Black Beauty.



AFTER I began the process of clearing out Black Beauty.

HOLY MOLY CAPTAIN !!

WHAT A DAY'S WORK !!

BEFORE..



AFTER..



And?

I believe that is that for the chronicles of our stolen GMC Suburban.

I expect to someday meet the criminal. I am awaiting police advice as to what to do when and IF I meet him.

Over And Out ..

  2. Tom very little of this mis-adventure makes any sense. It looks to me like the thief was surprised, and bailed out, abandoning GMC with little or no notice because he left a lot of his stuff in the truck. Things that (as I looked at them) would have some meaning and or value to him. Thanks so very much for your comment Tom. Cap
