Dream of:03 January 2008 "Aladdin"
When a woman and I returned to my home (which resembled the House in Patriot, a cottage in the tiny village of Patriot, Ohio, where my mother's parents lived when I was a child), I walked into the bathroom (which resembled the bathroom of the 7th Street House, a rental house which I owned in Portsmouth) and was surprised to discover the hot water heater in the bathroom had been moved. I immediately realized someone must have been in the house and moved the heater.
When I walked out of the bathroom, I saw my possessions scattered all about, and I quickly concluded the house had been burglarized. Many things were missing. When I saw my big television was gone, I hurried to my bedroom, convinced my .38 caliber revolver had also been taken, but I happily found the gun lying on the floor by the bed. I knew I had my stereo system next to the bed. I looked in the direction where the stereo was supposed to be, expecting it to be missing, and was pleasantly surprised to see it still there. I pointed it out to the woman and told her at least the thieves hadn't taken my stereo equipment.
The woman and I walked back into the living room, and I pointed to an open window and told the woman the burglar had entered there. I continued taking inventory of the missing items. Many things were still in the house, and I wondered if my favorite little antique typewriter had been taken.
I thought to myself that the thieves had only been able to take as much as they could carry in one load. Now I realized the thieves had tried to take the hot water heater out of the bathroom, but they hadn't been able to carry it.
Another man and woman who had come to visit me walked into the house and sat down on a couch. When the woman picked up some little cards (like trading cards) with scenes from the movie Aladdin on them, I noticed other games and toys from the movie Aladdin scattered around the room. The woman said whoever had come into the house had left the cards behind. I was unsure of the significance of the cards. I had been aware I had the cards, but I had never really looked at them. I took some of the cards from the woman and began looking at the colorful pictures.
When I began talking about the break-in, the man and woman acted as if they already knew about it. They started talking about Michelle's boyfriend, Wayne, and they said something about three friends of Wayne's who had come there to my house looking for Wayne. I couldn't quite follow the story, but apparently the three friends had been the ones who had broken into the house. That sounded bizarre. I didn't know why three friends of Wayne would have come to my house.
The man and woman began talking about "Chuck" (they were referring toKennon, a Dallas attorney I had once known). Apparently "Chuck" was somehow in charge of this house and he already knew about the break-in.
I thought I could call Wayne on his cell phone and ask him what he knew. Or I could call Michelle on her cell phone and ask her if Wayne was with her. If I could find out exactly what had happened, I thought I might still be able to retrieve some of my stolen possessions.
I told the man and woman I still didn't even know what all was missing. I knew I had lost a substantial amount, but I still didn't know exactly what. It seemed doubtful, but I thought I still might be able to retrieve something. I needed to call Wayne or Michelle and find out what they knew.
