A few days ago Jane and I were watching TV in our bedroom. I looked up at the window and saw a black silhouette appear and disappear. I was startled so I didn't immediately run to the window, but waited a few seconds before I did and then there was time for the guy to leave. Then I wondered if I even saw anything at all. Then a few days later Jane thought she heard someone try our front door. She asked me if I locked the door and I said I didn't remember so she checked and it was indeed locked. Then about ten minutes later when we were watching TV again Jane said she smelled cigarette smoke. I got up and looked out the window and saw a guy standing about 12 feet away from our window. In a rough voice I asked him what he was doing there. He made up a story about looking for his keys. I asked what his keys would be doing in our yard and he said well a dog chased him and he cut through our yard and lost his keys as he was running. I didn't believe him of course but then strange things happen sometimes. So I just let him go on his way. I called the police after but of course it was a bit late then. I should have called them instead of confronting the guy. That's what I'll do next time. Maybe he was a burgler too; who knows?
