Some stole my "Knowledge and Needles" sign right off the post at the end of the driveway last night.
Dan noticed it's absence when he left at 6 am for work. I took the dogs for their walk and scanned all the ditches in the direction of our walk but obviously the miscreants did not go in that direction. I saw a couple of people I k now and asked them to keep an eye out in the ditches for it...because, let's face it...the sign is of no earthly use to anyone else but me! Heck it is not even suitable for burning. It's heavy duty plastic or something!
Anyway Rod drives around in his truck over various back roads and he will watch and Andrea was on her run and will also keep a watch for it. These are people I see regularly when I am out with the dogs. I just called the police and reported it, not that I think they can do anything but I want it on record somewhere. The sign has been vandalized in the past but using it as target practice for a beer bottle or a snowball is still a far cry from actually taking it away!
Oviously our dogs are lousy watch dogs since nobody heard a thing!
I think I need to do a bit of stitching to calm down! Actually I have made great progress on "It's good to be Queen" and as soon as I get some batteries for my camera I will share a picture with you.
Sorry for the rant but really...these little thieves need a hobby or a job or community service or to go back to school or something!
