Default Being Vigilant-Even in the Lakes Region

Last night when I went to the fireworks in Ashland I was thinking that I had to be vigilant- even there! There was a space to the right next to where I was sitting. I noticed a guy that had come over and was standing near me. He kept moving closer to my chair. I had my bag between my chair and him so I thought that I had better move it. After I moved it he left. A nice women then came up to me and said that she was glad that I had moved my bag. She told me that the guy had been arrested several times for stealing in local retail stores. She was keeping an eye on him. I guess that you can never be to careful. Maybe he was just standing there. I am glad that I will never know if he planned on swiping something out of my bag (my wallet was in it).

I'm hoping things won't get worse, but you know about hope and how it springs...

You need to keep an empty bag with a nice rat trap in it and leave the bait for him.
