Where are my posts ? Have I been suspended again ? Two posts never made it here..

I've had a couple not post on 2 threads.

I'm still having some problems with posting and a couple of threads, I'm not able to post and still can't to see any threads after the 15th one.

BAK and ctav, it's likely still because of some tech glitches. BAK, I think you've been behaving really well lately WinkHappy.

As for the question the OP asked about pick pockets, that can happen anywhere at all, even at home. People need to be aware and take precautions - leave valuables in the safe, don't wear much jewellery, keep wallets in front pockets instead of back, and wear cross body purses instead of carrying one in their hand which would be easy to snatch. Toy can purchase a wire mess lined bag with wire in the shoulder strap that can't be cut off by a crook trying to grab and run.

Sounds to me like someone picked your post pocket Big Smile

Thanks. Sadly, I had a pretty good news story in my head this morning. I feel like a neutered dog.


Pick pockets are slick

Still find it hard to believe the lady on my cruise had her rings taken while walking around Suva and she said she did not fell them being taken.

No, not me, but I was watching a travel expert on our news this week doing her segment and it was about this very thing - pick pockets and personal theft. She mentioned about the shoulder bag with the mesh built in and I think I'm going to order one. Happy
