Santa Barbara, and Montecito in particular is a pretty laid back and quiet area. I know friends who do not lock their doors. Routinely I see cars parked along the beach where I swim with the windows down and keys in. We are up in the hills and out of the way. So I was annoyingly surprised this morning walking from the parsonage to church to see that one hubcap was missing, no, two, no...all four were gone. During the night someone must have come on the property and removed all four hubcaps....plastic Jetta hubcaps. These hubcaps have almost 90,000 miles on them. They are scratched and stained with road wear and disc brake dust. What a dumb robbery! But now my car looks....naked!

Bummer. Borrow a car so no one sees you driving around town naked -- run on down to the Montecito Walmart :-) and buy yourself a set of plastic replacements. Or you can hold-off a few days to see if your caps don't show up in the middle of a prank. There wouldn't be a college nearby would there?

Wow, that's really weird. And stupid! Thieves must be getting desperate these days ... for scrap plastic?
