About my over one ton elephant - Peru

How much does an elephant weigh?

To make a long story short, remember this over 1,000 pound Gibralter safe I bought back in 2009?

1. The safe has been outside since I bought it. Since I have a basement, I found a stranger off the streets to reinforce the structure of that part of the basement in the den where the safe would stand. The man brought another guy in his twenties to help him. On the 2nd day, they brought the safe in, which took them over 5 hours since it was so heavy. I paid them and that was that.

2. A few days later, I saw them at the grocery store parking lot. The man approached me and asked me if I now had the safe full of money. I laughed and told him I wished! They both made strange sound that meant they didn't believe me. When I saw I was dealing with fools, I walked away.

Days later, I was approached again by both of them and they asked me the same question. I told them if I had money, which I DIDN'T, I'd keep it at the bank.

3. I recently found out that the 20 something guy had recently come out from prison. Word has now spread that I have a big safe inside my house.

4. These two stupid jerks honestly believe I have money inside the safe!

5. I believe I made a serious mistake when I picked them off the street.

I'll be going to Cusco, Peru VERY soon. If you suddenly don't hear from me in LJ, you'll know where I'm at. Can hardly wait to take oodles of pics to share with you kids of that that beautiful country!

Just when you got back you're going again. Send me a postecard!

Postcard for darling S? Of course!
You better believe I'll send you a postcard from Peru!

Could you send me a message with your message your address, or better yet, your email and I'll email you back?

And furthermore...
If any of you kids want me to send you a postcard from Peru, let me know.

You HAVE to send that thing with a bunch of ridiculous stuff in case they ever steal it. I'd go with some old canned goods and a sarcastic note--ooohhh--no no, put a treasure map in it!

treasure map...
I had to hire a towing company with 4 of their men to use some kind of powerful fork lift to pick it up, then drive it outside to the waiting tow truck, then drive it to my house and dump it in my yard; it's that heavy. I don't think these 2 men would be willing to go through all that trouble. And if they broke into my house, they wouldn't be able to open it since I'm the only one who knows the combination! But your idea sounds WONDERFULLY wicked to me. I'm gonna draw a treasure map and put it inside and leave the safe vault open! heh heh

Re: treasure map...
Love it! =D

Re: treasure map...
When I finish drawing up my treasure map, it will take those rascals straight to the pit of life and death. :o)

have a wonderful time!

and yeah... sounds like the person who moved the safe might be having some unsavoury thoughts.
Jan. 14th, 2011 11:25 pm (UTC)
unsavoury thoughts...
Thank you! I'm sure I will!

About those guys, I think so, too, and if they follow through, and I kind of hope they do since I have so many frustrations locked up in me, I'll be waiting for them. :o)

Perhaps when you leave, you should hook a battery up to that safe.. =/
Jan. 26th, 2011 10:21 pm (UTC)
I could kick myself for not paying attention as to exactly who these characters really were.
Jan. 27th, 2011 05:00 am (UTC)
Oh, no did something happen?
Jan. 15th, 2011 05:30 am (UTC)
The real treasure in your house is you.
Jan. 26th, 2011 10:12 pm (UTC)
My eyes grew teary to find those words which made me happier than my visit to Peru! Luv, I'm serious!
Jan. 15th, 2011 11:44 am (UTC)
Oh crap :(

Some people are just nuts.
Jan. 26th, 2011 10:09 pm (UTC)
Too late I found out they were creepy crawlers!
Jan. 15th, 2011 12:29 pm (UTC)
Are you going to Machu Pichu?
Diviertete y te esperamos de regreso. Un beso.
Jan. 26th, 2011 10:15 pm (UTC)
Ya regrese! :o) Peru fue una maravilla y espero que te gusten los fotos!

Un beso y muchos abrazos!
Jan. 29th, 2011 03:29 pm (UTC)
Que emocion! esperamos por esas fotografias.

open the safe and create an artful pile inside ... of toilet paper or Monopoly money.

We just had a beautiful little girl, from Peru, as a patient yesterday. She had gorgeous chocolate eyes and a sweet smile. She came to the US a few months ago to live with her mother. =) I don't meet Peruvians everyday. I thought it interesting that you posted this. On that note, be safe Missy!
Jan. 26th, 2011 10:29 pm (UTC)
I tell you, I think we have a touch of ESP! :o)

I'm going to try and do a write up along with some of the pictures I took of Peru. Lets see how I do it since I totally suck at trying to express my exact thoughts in writing, but I'll try. How I wish I could write like you do, but I know I never will.
Jan. 28th, 2011 02:20 am (UTC)
You express yourself quite well, I think. Your distinct personality comes through your writing, and that is something. Many people get so wrapped up in what they want others to believe about them that the carefully manufactured facade reads disjointed. Thank you for your kind words but please don't be so hard on yourself. We enjoy your writing and miss you when you're quiet.

The trip was very enjoyable. I bought postcards but didn't have addresses to send them to. :o( But at least I'll be able to share the pics with you soon.
Jan. 17th, 2011 10:09 am (UTC)
I bet those two are drug addicts and they will try and break into your house to get into the safe. Be careful my friend.
Jan. 26th, 2011 10:06 pm (UTC)
I'm always so careful, but this time I didn't think at all.
Jan. 17th, 2011 01:03 pm (UTC)
Please be safe. These are bad times. It may not even be those two but people who hear them talk while drunk.
Jan. 26th, 2011 10:18 pm (UTC)
It angers me beyond words that they have spread the word around. It's close to impossible to break into my property, but I will be more careful than ever.

Sending you and your beautiful family big hugs!
