We never locked our doors either. I honestly don't remember where the key for it was! Maybe Mom had it in her purse, but if she did we never needed it. If we were all gone somewhere (there were 7 of us) and company came to visit, they'd just go right in, put another log on the fire, and read the paper while they were waiting for us to get home. I do lock my doors nowadays. There is quite a bit of stealing and stuff going on now, and getting more all the time. The big thing now is they steal all the wiring off the irrigation systems and sell it for scrap copper. They even got one of our family's old far houses (right across the road from me). Nobody lives in it permanently anymore, a cousin stays in it sometimes on the weekends to go snowmobiling or hunting. On Memorial Day weekend a couple years ago somebody broke into it, ripped a bunch of the wiring out, stole some of the plumbing fixtures (there was no running water in the house at that time), and they even pulled up as much as they could of the copper pipe that runs from the LP tank outside in the yard!
