Exciting times, Charmion! That fiddle performance sounds wonderful, the door kicked in, not so much.

Breaking in at night, one wonders what that burglar/robber was thinking? Down here most burglaries happen in the middle of the day, they presume people are at work and approach doors that are somewhat out-of-sight of the street. In 2005 my side door was kicked in, like you describe, and they got quite a bit of electronic stuff before a passing neighbor saw and reported the unknown car backed up in my driveway with the trunk open and three men running in and out of the house. I had a contractor who also came over quickly and replaced that door and I had a iron security door installed over it, installed one on the front door as well, and put decorative iron bars over the new windows on that side of the house to match the bars on all of the rest of the house. It makes my heart race just to read your account; that kind of thing makes you jumpy for a while. And once the work is finished you'll be glad to have the new door.
