    1-23-14 More about our burglary: The interconnectedness of Whidbey

    In my Blog on 12-9-13, I wrote about the burglary that took place in our home while we were gone, and about some of the impressive responses from Whidbey Sheriff Evan Tingstad and from a stranger who found some of our belongings that had been tossed alongside the road.

    Two weeks later, Rich saw an item on Drewslist where a person mentioned finding a bead necklace on Andreason Road, and asked for an email from someone who might know about this.  Rich emailed, and quickly learned the bead necklace was one of the items stolen from my jewelry box.

    We drove over and met the person who had found the necklace, which also had a small plastic bag with extra beads.  She and her husband spent half an hour walking along Brooks Hill Road to see if we could find some more items.  We did find an empty drawer from the jewelry box…but nothing else.  We thanked the couple very much, and they told us they were really happy they could help us.

    A week later, we were chatting with Windwalker Taibi from Raven Rocks and showed him the necklace.  He confirmed he had made it.  He also said he’d be glad to add some of the extra beads to lengthen the necklace and make me some matching earrings with the remaining beads.

    I got the necklace and the earrings from Windwalker a few days later.  I made a trip to Langley that same day and stopped by to see Fred Lundahl at Music for the Eyes.  I showed him the necklace and told him the story.  He looked at me with a whimsical look on his face and said, “You know where those beads came from?  Music For the Eyes!    Windwalker gets most of his beads from us.”

    I love the interconnectedness of our island!
