Clarification on Tony’s “Robbed” poem!

Thanks for posting my poem about our home being robbed.  I suppose I should have put a date on the poem to make sure people didn’t think the robbery occurred recently. It happened several years ago, but I was inspired to share it with you, and your readers, because of your poem about your house – “My House Is Too Heavy.” I am getting notes of sympathy and concern from friends and colleagues who read “The Gadfly,” and I feel as if I have misled them. Pat and I really appreciate their concern, but the incident is now just a distant memory. We continue to enjoy our beautiful old home, “too heavy” like the Gallagher home, but complete with a new alarm system, and lots of new exterior security lighting. We have to protect all of those books!
