We don’t take our phones to bed . . but that has all changed . . starting tonight.
The video doorbell has been up two nights now. This morning Vince and I were sitting at the table waiting for Addie to wake up. I picked up my phone and checked the doorbell app to see if we got any deer or dogs or anything in the camera.
I wasn’t expecting to find even a deer but I looked and got quite a surprise. I “What the heck?” Vince said “Did we get something?” I said . . oh, yes . . and handed him my phone.
Some guy came up on our front porch between 5:30 and 6 a.m., changed his clothes . . everything . . sat down on the steps, ate a box of cracker and left at 6:13 a.m. I was awake .. sitting in the living room just steps from that door. Oh, my . . what if I had taken Rita out the side door and encountered him?
We got great photos of his face, even the brand name on his backpack. I don’t see that he did anything wrong other than come onto our porch and change his clothes but still .. it’s unnerving and definitely wasn’t expected and I think after just a couple of days, Vince sees the value in having it and will make sure the security cameras are installed within a day or so.
Vince had told me he’d put the security cameras up next week but sometimes things don’t happen as quickly as I’d like for them to so I told myself . . I’ll wait til the end of next week and if they aren’t up, I’ll ask him again.
He’s already out installing cameras so something good came from our visitor.
