Here’s the Story…
My blue North Face backpack was stolen from my locked and alarmed car in my driveway. I suspect someone used a key fob amplifier to get in easily as my purse was in the living room, just feet away from the car. I have never returned to my car to find it unlocked in all my years living in the Bronx, since 1998. The bag was left out of site but not in the trunk.
I returned in the morning, and all of my doors were ajar. Glove compartments were open, etc. Some change missing, and then I noticed the entire backpack was swiped. I wish they just dumped the contents either in the car or nearby because it has value only to me. Inside was the following:
Black 11 inch dell chromebook and charger, licensed to Harrison High School, and locked. The lock screen was a gecko. Model 2015. Catcher in the Rye, vintage white from 1997, marked 10-97 inside front cover. No annotations. (I read it in high school), annotated copy of Speak, Harrison copy of Of Mice and Men, 2 expensive Oxford IB course companion Literature textbooks, an 8 inch stack of student papers, blue Phillips earbuds, white unused iphone earbuds, Harrison High School neoprene ipad cover (no ipad inside), the blue Beatles cover for my Beatles umbrella (H Due O), 10 euros in change, hand knit scarf in metallic Italian flag colors (red, green and white) made for me before I moved to Italy, an interoffice envelope for Harrison High School, pens, pencils, miscellaneous items. The $100 North Face bag is dirty and 5 years old, yet it is the perfect travel companion and just the right size and compartments for all of my trips and teaching, from living in Italy and Norway to backpacking around Europe to teaching in the Bronx and now Harrison. It has a lot of sentimental value, as well as the scarf. I miss those two items the most along with Catcher. The bounty for just the scarf is $50, just for Catcher $25, just for the packpack $100, etc.
