11. Hadn't thought of that - thanks.

Probably will do so. It's silly to go to too much trouble with locks around here because burglaries are very rare, and if somebody wanted in the house however, they'd just break the window. The main problems come for responsible if forgetful owners who don't want to add damage to their pain. I lock the door more as a matter of formality than anything else. Most people don't even bother. In almost 9 years here, I've only read about 2 burglaries and they were of businesses with attractive drugs such as a vet's office. That one was extra sad because it was the vet's grandson. Didn't do him any good, though. Judge threw the book at him because he had a long record of various scrapes with the law. Bad street drugs flow like water here, and the fact that there's almost no other crime attached makes me pretty sure the police are in on it. They don't want to provoke citizen complaints or federal interest. I suppose most of their customers make their $ to buy by dealing too.
