Happy Sunday everyone, it looks like another nice day here in Michigan probably the last of warmer temps as it will be dipping down into the low 50’s for the rest of the week. It makes me thankful to know I’ve accomplished all my outdoor tasks for the season. Some years I’m on top of it and other years I just dread all the work that has to be done before snow flies.
This is the first fall for my entrance marker and I thought just one single pumpkin was all it needed this year. Not only was it easy to decorate it makes me smile every time I drive past it. This year I made fall decorating easy on myself, nothing is over the top just very plain and simple. I’ve had so many projects going on outside I hardly had time to even stop to pick out the pumpkins I did grab. I purchased them from the same local farmer I get them from every year. He plants them, sells them for $2 each and donates the money to the school. What a nice thing to do right?
Well this year I gathered all the pumpkins I wanted, loaded them into my jeep, grabbed my wallet and went back to the put the money in the box he has mounted on the trailer. I was so disappointed when I looked down and noticed someone had pried the latch off the locked box and stole all the money. How horrible to live in such a small community and find something like this had happened. The man doesn’t even keep the money he donates it and someone robbed the money box anyway. What a horrible feeling I had wash over me. I did deposit my money but figured it would probably be taken too. I think I say this a billion times a day, “what is wrong with people” I say it so much it seems to be the norm. How sad that someone thinks it’s ok to do such a thing.
