I agree with you gbanker, I must lead a sheltered life, or a lucky one. In the eighties while in the navy
,I have wondered through Central Park (Drunk) with no hassles, accidently through a part of Harlem (drunk) also with no hassles (though some dudes did hail me a cab to get me out of there...lol. Half the time we don't/forget to lock our house up when we leave...security is just not on my mind at all. I have never neen worried in Africa
. The only trouble I ever had was in Liverpool England
just random mindless violence in a bar easily handled when I got back on my feet (the bouncer was a different matter...lol he won handily...lol).
I think when you expect trouble it happens, its like your expectations are a challenge. On the other hand acting meek draws the bully....its a balancing act I guess.
I'll stick with my little padlock on my companionway
...you never know when I might lose my key and have to break in....lol....Allan
