Allan, and the rest of y'all,

You wrote (after correctly guessing that Bob's banjo had been stolen):

Har dee har har . . . WRONG!  Sheesh,

What actually occurred was that about a month later one of my students (I 
taught a music class at the high school not from from the bar where the 
break in happened) asked if I wanted to buy a banjo for 25 bucks. I almost 
said "no" but something told me to proceed a bit further. When the kid 
showed me the banjo I was staring at the very same instrument the little 
sonovabitch stole out of my car.

Turned out the kid's garage was full of stolen stuff and the cops closed the 
books on a lot of minor theft reports.

Is that funny or what!!!
