Stealing home

No, I'm not talking about something that happened during a baseball game:
Police in Greece say robbers near Athens have stolen everything including the kitchen sink, lifting a prefabricated home off its foundation and spiriting it away.

Police say the owner went to visit his 750-square-foot (70-square meter) vacation home Monday in the coastal area of Rafina, 15.5 miles (25 kilometers) east of Athens, and discovered it was missing, along with its contents.
The article goes on to say that the thieves likely used a crane to load the house onto a trailer. You'd think someone might have noticed that. Which really proves that the advice my late Grandpa gave me about never moving into a neighborhood where all your neighbors are completely deaf and blind was pretty solid. Thanks, Grandpa.
