Roger, that, Beth!  

After several thefts of boxes of figures at local cons the old SCA'er in
me commented that  you could lose a hand digging through other people's
boxes unasked.	Some people are not sure I am kidding.	I like the
uncertainty in "those" minds.  <serious face>  And I can neither confirm
or deny that I am or am not joking.  <end of serious face> LOL!

But although the loss was traumatic for me as one of the (smaller)
victims, I much rather fear leaving stuff behind (I did once, Park
Service apparently threw it away) or people breaking things (I break
enough of my own thank you...) that I now have stuff on the table or
locked up in the car.
